In any case there is a reason for the state of affairs we have now with psychologists running things—something had to be done because of the chaotic situation that presented itself.  These things don’t happen in a vacuum. I don’t think psychologists are the answer either, but it’s a system that grew out of incredible dysfunction. What would you have done?

Is this a rhetorical question? Vyazma asked the same thing.

If not a rhetorical question, I think the families should handle these matters themselves. No government involvement. However, some people in these positions don’t have reliable families, so “street justice” should be the next step, IMO.

Which is why we have the chaos we have. Some people try to relieve the chaos while people like you call for more. So far your side is winning.

How is “my side” winning?

Because we have chaos already and you are calling for more. Do nothing, get more chaos. Simple equation.

I guess M-A feels we need an expansion of the “Stand Your Ground” laws to, maybe, “Prevent Any Behavior Different From Your Own” that would allow anyone to shoot any other person who doesn’t comply with the first one’s ideas of proper behavior.  This would be defined as “street justice”.

I said no to more government intervention.

You also said street justice.
What does that mean?

How do you apply street justice to 2 children who have a child molester as a father and meth addict as a mother for example?

It’s means not getting authorities involved, taking matters into your own hands. In this example, stable family members can take the kids; meth head mom will not be worrying about the children as long as she’s using.

However,it’s impossible to prove molestation occurred without medical help, and health care practitioners are required by law to contact authorities if they find signs of abuse (known as mandated reporting) so, some official investigation of the father will happen.

Never ask a libertarian for details. He will tell you that everything will magically fall into place once government is out of the picture.
