People who deliberately make false reports of child abuse should be arrested and prosecuted
Yesterday, Corey Seiler wrote in the Albany Times Union about a woman named Rera from Gloversville, New York who has had three false hotline reports of child abuse made about her to Child Protective Services. It’s not surprising that Rera’s trouble started soon after she and her husband separated. This is a problem that many estranged and divorced spouses face. The problem of deliberately made, vindictive false child abuse reports affects many other individuals and groups as well, not just separated spouses..
The removal of more than 400 children from the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints (FLDS) compound in Texas made front page news for several days in April 2008. However, a follow-up Associated Press story revealing that the phone call that initiated the raid was a hoax got short shrift. Rozita Swinton, who has been arrested and charged with misdemeanors more than once for making false phone calls about child abuse, has been questioned by Texas Rangers and may be the person who made the phone call.
