I always thought that social service agencies were supposed to look out for the welfare of children. After stories like this, I have to question what their mission is.
A Swedish woman was separated from her husband, but they shared custody of their two small children. After a few months, the woman started to notice that her kids were doing strange things in the tub. Fearing they were being sexually abused, she took her concerns to police, who dropped the charges due to lack of evidence.
Her lawyer then told her to film some of these behaviours and show the tape to police. She did, and showed it to police and social services. They decided that *she* was creating pornographic material, arrested her, and stripped her of custody of the children. And where did the kids go? Back to daddy! Apparently there was no evidence that he was abusing them, but her allowing them to continue the behaviour in the tub was abuse, and filming them could do untold damage to them. Oh yeah, and what about the actions that taught them about these behaviours? What kind of damage are they doing?
The case has been taken to a higher authority. I hope *somebody* has some goddamn sense.
