Valid points, and kudos for looking at this situation logically and rationally, rather than emotionally. The fact that the CPS pressured the parents into signing a questionably legal document without their lawyer present also raises great big flapping red flags with me. Anytime any kind of authoritarian governmental organization attempts to squeeze out a lawyer's professional advice screams of overreaching, overstepping, and any other kind of over-ing that you can think of.

If I were the parents, I would run to a lawyer as fast as I could and find out the proper legal way to deal with this.

That's the proof that environmental whackos (greenies) have invaded the corporate bureaucracy. However, I am not sure how they are going to forward their "big government" plan, if they are laying off the three or four guys that would NORMALLY take the shredded remains to the incinerator...

Maybe they'll continue their jobs emptying the bit bucket?
