Letter: Scott Nalley, Ashburn

Editor: The reporting of the passing of Janet Reno has omitted a rather disturbing part of her career, specifically that part of her career that engineered false convictions during the daycare hysteria of the 1980s. In the ’80s, throughout the country overzealous prosecutors were prosecuting innocent parents and daycare workers on the most meager of evidence. One of the more troubling cases involving Janet Reno was that of Bobby Finje; Janet Reno should not be praised.

The media seems to be white-washing that part of her career. Unfortunately, in Loudoun County the same tactics are used. Lessons were learned in the ’80s but evidently not by Loudoun County Child Protective Services or the County Attorney’s Office. Just like Reno in the ’80s, today Loudoun uses very dubious and questionable “expert” witnesses.

    Completely agree Scott Nalley. In fact, an LCPS principal reported me to CPS for ….. allowing my child to choose to wear rain boots to school, preventing her from playing kick ball. I kid you not. Of course, the principal didn’t like that I handed out flyers criticizing LCPS and the principal for coercing kids who failed the SOL into retaking the test for the school’s benefit.

    While it obviously didn’t go anywhere, the scary part is the CPS officer told me if I handed out the flyers again with my kids, she would reopen the case!!! I have that recorded of course and the CPS officer will be testifying in a civil rights case in federal court. It’s time to stop all this abuse by the Commonwealth Attorney, CPS and our corrupt public officials.

    Virginia_sgp. That’s terrible. I hope you sue the @#%@#$% out of them for it.

    CPS is another government agency that clearly needs to get reigned it.

      Agree with that David Dickinson, the way the organization is structured there is zero oversight. CPS polices itself, which means that it doesn’t. Their training documentation dates back to the 80’s, workers have no knowledge or concept of the latest studies.

    I can only imagine what they do to folks that cannot defend themselves (either financially or fail to hire a lawyer before answering their questions). Parental rights are often dismissed by CPS and/or judges on their high horses (remember Judge Irby telling a 10-yr-old competitive golfer she wasn’t allowed to play a full golf round for a whole year because the mother was upset at the father). They are completely out of control.
