It does usually warrant a closer look, when one person is guilty of a crime. If it is a higher up, it is a really bad sign, and if it is someone lower down, it is always possible they were thrown under the bus.

There isn't enough child abuse to warrant a tyrannical agency. Child abuse happens in shithole countries.

This surprises me very little; there are kiddie diddlers everywhere in society, in all institutions. Dig deep enough and you'll find pedos anywhere you care to look. Sometimes I wonder whether the reason I'm not rich is perhaps because I'm not a child abuser and therefore am excluded from the higher echolons of society.

Again with this libertarian nonsense. Just like for protecting our borders, we need a state to protect children from those who would do them harm.

The state is usually the one doing them harm. Same goes for the borders, how good of a job have they done so far? Mostly they've been actively undermining the border, not enforcing it.

The state isn't the one "usually" doing them harm; it's the abusive parents and foster parents. Even when they are, is that the fault of the state as an institution, or the character of the people we hire into the state? Do you honestly think the answer to the border crisis is to stop having borders, or to remove child protective services if we have a child abuse or trafficking problem? Some things need to exist outside of the profit model driven by morality and ethics instead of personal self-interest.
