Albany County CPS takes advantage of ignorance during investigations

See also

Continued from "Do children have the right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure?"...

“In the name of saving children from the harm that their parents and guardians are thought to pose, states ultimately cause more harm to many more children than they ever help”. The footnote credited this quote to “Storming the Castle to Save the Children: The
Ironic Costs of a Child Welfare Exception to the Fourth
Amendment
”.
I promptly went and found this article, whose footnotes also were as enlightening as the original text. On page 20/130 (page 430 of William and Mary Review), the author quotes an official from Albany County Child Protective Services as saying that most families under investigation do not realize that they have the right to not talk to investigators.
The author then states that “officials, in some cases, mislead the families as to the state’s authority to compel cooperation”. No surprise there, huh??
