Thread Name: BS: Shannon found- alive!
Subject: RE: BS: Shannon found- alive!
My late wife Jacqui was a social worker. Every time you take a kid into care you do damage. The question is whether that is more damage than the damage probably/possibly done by leaving the kid at home.
Part of the trouble with deciding is that "indecent images of children" is such a wide net. A boy of 2, a girl of 15, a boy of 15 getting lucky (I'd have prayed for that at the age of 15) or even in some US states a person under 18 or I think 21. And in any event does not prove a likely threat of interference with Shannon (although I had my suspicions from some time ago that Shannon might have been being resued rahter than abducted).
