Lack of trust
County fails its children, enriches its workers
Article Last Updated: 09/08/2007 07:03:19 PM PDT
AS if we needed it, even more evidence of how the Los Angeles County
Department of Children and Family Services fails children came to light
According to an audit, the DCFS payroll is a huge mess with
overpayments, underpayments and unaccounted-for time. A mere sampling of
workers in 2005 found at least $100,000 in unwarranted expenses.
Extrapolated out, that suggests that a lot of money is being misspent.
Wasted money means less service to needy children. And it suggests that
if payroll controls are so slapdash, the department can't be trusted
with the lives of children.
County officials say they are working diligently to clean up bad
operations at the DCFS. It just can't come fast enough for the children.
CURRENTLY CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES VIOLATES MORE CIVIL RIGHTS ON A
DAILY BASIS THEN ALL OTHER AGENCIES COMBINED INCLUDING THE NSA / CIA
CPS Does not protect children...
It is sickening how many children are subject to abuse, neglect and even
killed at the hands of Child Protective Services.
every parent should read this .pdf from
connecticut dcf watch...
Number of Cases per 100,000 children in the US
These numbers come from The National Center on
Child Abuse and Neglect in Washington. (NCCAN)
Recent numbers have increased significantly for CPS
*Perpetrators of Maltreatment*
Physical Abuse CPS 160, Parents 59
Sexual Abuse CPS 112, Parents 13
Neglect CPS 410, Parents 241
Medical Neglect CPS 14 Parents 12
Fatalities CPS 6.4, Parents 1.5
Imagine that, 6.4 children die at the hands of the very agencies that
are supposed to protect them and only 1.5 at the hands of parents per
100,000 children. CPS perpetrates more abuse, neglect, and sexual abuse
and kills more children then parents in the United States. If the
citizens of this country hold CPS to the same standards that they hold
parents too. No judge should ever put another child in the hands of ANY
government agency because CPS nationwide is guilty of more harm and
death than any human being combined. CPS nationwide is guilty of more
human rights violations and deaths of children then the homes from which
they were removed. When are the judges going to wake up and see that
they are sending children to their death and a life of abuse when
children are removed from safe homes based on the mere opinion of a
bunch of social workers.
