Child Protective Services are out of control

Glenn told a harrowing story on radio today about a woman who received an unwanted visit from child protective services after someone sent a ‘tip’ to the government agency. Who do you ask sent this 'tip'? Supposedly, the son spoke in favor of legalizing marijuana during a school discussion on the topic, and the school called Child Protective Services. Is this all it takes in America today to send the government out to confiscate children?

See Glenn's reaction below:

Rough Transcript Below:

GLENN: But she obtained it legally. She's not giving it to her son. She's taking it for her Chrone's disease. Okay. So where did this complaint come from? Her 11-year-old son was at school. And they were having a debate about medical marijuana. And he had argued in favor of marijuana at an anti-drug presentation. The school decided that they should call the state child protection agency.

PAT: Jeez.

GLENN: And that's all they had! That's it!

PAT: So five police officers and CPS show up.

GLENN: No wait. There's more. Temporary custody has already been granted her ex. She's lost her children.

JEFFY: What?

GLENN: And she could lose them permanently. No criminal charges have been filed.

JEFFY: Oh, my gosh.

STU: Holy crap. This is a bad one.

PAT: Really bad.

STU: So did the kid say, look, I think it's safe. My mom used it.

PAT: It doesn't really say.

GLENN: It doesn't matter! It doesn't matter.

PAT: He just defended marijuana.

GLENN: He's using his first amendment to speak out and the fricking spies at the school decides my kid is in trouble because they're with that person. Oh, my gosh.

STU: Especially when -- in a situation where you're encouraging the child to make his best arguments in favor of a mythical argument. You're requiring him to be part of.

GLENN: Let's say, it's an anti-drug presentation. Let's just say he was sitting in the bleachers and he was like, pot is dope! Let's just say he's saying that.

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: You still don't call the Department of Children and Families.

STU: Even if he said pot is dope, my mom has some at home. Does that allow -- even at that point --

GLENN: No. Here's what happens. You call the mom. And say, hey, mom, your mom son was screaming pot's dope and mom smokes it all the time. And you have an adult conversation. You have an actual human being to human being conversation. And then if you're like, you know what, I think this lady is a drug lord. Then you call.

PAT: It's pretty bad. Because CPS or DCF or whatever they call it in Kansas has almost unlimited power. Once they're involved, there's almost nothing you can do.

JEFFY: We're seeing that everywhere.

Candace Owens, BLEXIT founder and author of the upcoming book, "Blackout," joined Glenn Beck on Friday's GlennTV for an exclusive interview. available only to BlazeTV subscribers.

Candace dropped a few truth-bombs about the progressive movement and what's happening to the Democratic Party. She said people are practically running away from the left due to their incessant push to dig up dirt on anybody who disagrees with their radical ideology. She explained how -- like China and its "social credit score" -- the left is shaping America into its own nightmarish episode of "Black Mirror."

"This game of making sure that everyone is politically correct is a societal atom bomb. There are no survivors. There's no one that is perfect," Candace said. "The idea that humanity can be perfect is Godless. If you accept that there is something greater than us, then you accept that we a flawed. To be human is to be flawed."

Philip Haney, a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) whistleblower during the Obama administration, was found dead near Plymouth, California, on Friday.

Authorities said 66-year-old Haney died from a single gunshot wound to his chest, which was determined to be "self-inflicted." Read more on this here.

Haney was a good friend to Glenn Beck and the program. On radio Monday, Glenn said it's almost impossible for him to believe that the man he knew so well could have taken his own life.

"He was one of the most honorable men I've ever met," Glenn said. "A guy who was willing to put himself in danger. A guy who knew what he was dealing with, knew that he could be killed, or that he would be disappeared, or that he could go to prison. And he was absolutely unafraid. And this is one reason why I know, why I so strongly feel that he didn't kill himself."
