Child separation occurs daily

Thursday, June 21, 2018

As a family doctor since 1964, I have been called into court on several occasions to testify regarding the removal of children from their biological parents. In fact all over America, social services facilitates the removal of many children from their homes every day, a process that can be initiated by anyone but most often begins with the children themselves or teachers and coaches.

Obviously when a parent is incarcerated for any reason, children must be cared for, and initially other family members and relatives are called upon by the courts. Granted, in many instances the accusations are unsubstantiated. Nevertheless, doctors lawyers and social service workers involved will all agree that this work is a vital part of our ameliorative institution for a long time to come if not forever.

As a matter of fact, the bringing up of all human beings turns out to be just as important as genetics when it comes to the ultimate physical and mental behavior of each and every one of us, regardless of the current identity politics running rampant in our republic today.

So much of our reasoning about race is both emotional and faulty. In ordinary, as well as professional, conversation, we use terms such as discrimination, prejudice, racial preferences and racism interchangeably, as if they referred to the same behavior. We can avoid many pitfalls of misguided…

Since 1999’s Floyd, we’ve come to the conclusion that with hurricanes, water is the new wind.

Smarter construction methods — from beefed-up building codes to plain old common sense — seem to have helped mitigate damage solely from wind and, to a lesser extent, storm surge.…

Readers of the Los Angeles Times were furious in 2003 when — only five days before the California gubernatorial election — the paper published a stunning investigation in which 16 women accused candidate Arnold Schwarzenegger of groping them.

They canceled their subscriptions in droves…

If recent history is any guide, we'll still be hearing about the Hurricane Florence recovery effort well into 2020.

The recovery from Hurricane Matthew — which flooded large parts of Eastern North Carolina in October 2016 — was still creeping along as Florence hit the state. Just a week…

When natural disasters or other emergencies hit our state, North Carolinians respond in droves — and I’m not just referring to the crucial and praiseworthy work of our public employees who work in emergency management, public safety, and public works.

Under any other president’s watch, this would be big news, that the budget deficit has reached $895 billion. Thanks to President Trump’s tax cut, corporate tax revenue fell 30 percent in the last 11 months, and the need for social services remains despite the good economy.

Wages are…

Should an unaccountable United Nations court, created by a treaty to which the United States is not a signatory, and that the Senate has not ratified, be allowed to investigate, try and imprison American citizens?

Unfortunately, this is no longer a theoretical question. In November, the chief…
