Another day, another boatload of tax money spent for no good reason (Reason, 8/22/18). It’s the inimitable Lenore Skenazy again with another tale of bureaucratic overreaching, this time on the part of a Wilmette, IL child protective agency.
What were they investigating this time? An eight-year-old girl walking the family dog. In her own neighborhood. Within sight of her mother. That most normal of situations was anonymously reported to the police who paid a surprise visit to the girl’s mother, Corey Widen. They left without further ado, but soon the Department of Children and Family Services showed up. And they didn’t leave the matter at just a quick interview of Widen. No, they interviewed Widen’s other children, various relatives and the girl’s pediatrician.
