I do think children should be removed from criminal parents so the cycle can be broken. I see so many children at work who are exposed to drugs and crime. I'm shocked at the number of needle exchange users who see nothing wrong with bringing their children in to witness it or to watch them take their medication. These kids are brought up to think drugs and crime are normal and copy their mum and dad.
Worse are the ones who are born addicted. I held an addicted baby once. She was so small and frail. Thankfully the baby was removed from her mum. It's awful for the parents but the child's welfare is more important to me.
