I dont think so wrote:
The real problem with the system is that workers are taking children from their homes who do not need to be removed instead of focusing on the children who are actually being abused and neglected.

Well justice in this country the million dollars it will cost to prosocute this crimminal is not worth the death of a child. I say use a rope and no jury then you will get justice. In our USA the criminal will probably get 5 years with parole and a book deal. Thats if he does not sue the police and get more money.

Unfortunatly, these children are neglected from the system that is supposed to protect them. They find NO relief. They are tossed around from home to home and then the judge gives them back to the parents, no matter if they have been compliant with his orders or not. There was a sibling group of 6 here in Calhoun that were taken from thier parents and seen in court over 30 times. Each time the judge saw it fit for these children to keep being returned to the biological parents that had not completed ANY of his own orders. He felt it was best to keep them with thier own family. Finally, after the last time the children were taken, it came out that BOTH parents were sexually abusing ALL of the children. They are currently serving time in prison, for good I hope. These children are together in a happy home and God Bless the Family that has taken them. These children suffered for a very long time, just because the judge gave the parents more than 30 chances. How in the hell does this judge still have a job? How in the hell can DFCS employees sleep at night? Thank God these children are finally out of the personal hell they had to live in for so long! They suffered way to long at the hands of the appointed judge that no one seems to be able to get rid of. It is wrong in my opinion that something so serious is placed in the hands of one person, who consistently makes the wrong decision. These precious children are affected the rest of thier lives for what they have to live in.

The problem with the court system is that the Juvenile court Judge believes everything anybody tells him. He is a liberal jerk. The superior court has a bunch of self center judges except for one. The rest just are amused at how much they can help get the criminals out of their charges. Oh yeah and it was the citizens of this county that let these parents of this murdered 5 year old girl go back to the streets to abuse the rest of their children. It was the jury that screwed this on up.

The first thing obvious about this quote would have to be "you people", typical of most dfcs workers, to hold people lower than themselves. Do you even realize that you come off that way? It's very hard to have respect for someone who doesn't show respect and compassion. Yes, I realize there are many who don't deserve respect, which has to be frustrating, but why judge all who come thru your doors, sight unseen? That is what I got many yrs ago when I recieved public aid help, an "I'm better than you scumbags" attitude. Now, from your own words, "all on a measley $30,000 salary" you complain that you don't get paid enough to protect abused children. Did you go into the field of social work intending to get rich, or help people? Fact is, you knew, going into the job, how much you'd be paid, so stop complaining or change jobs. Many people's feeling's wouldn't be hurt if some of you would change jobs, maybe that would make room for a more compassionate employee. <quoted text>


I am disgusted with DFACS. My kids were taken from me because a dfacs worker lied to her supervisor and the judge and the police. She said that I threatened to kill myself, I would never say that. after that I have dealt with BS from them. my youngest came home for almost 6 months and then the foster mother said I was not giving my daughter her meds and then My daughter was in the drivers seat and I had thought about letting her drive a little and the life coach saw her and the car was off and parked and they took both my kids and now want to adopt them out WTF is that huh?????????? Never have I ever harmed my children and now I am devastated so much it is debilitating. I cant find anyone to help me cause there is no one to help a deserving family. I hate that I have no say my daughter needs me and she is 13 she knows whats going on and they are trying to adopt them out.

you people have no idea how these type of tradegy's affect everyone involved, including the social workers. we do not live in the homes with our clients. we do not know their every move. with non-verbal children, we do not have one's story to go on but the parents. we are slammed for protecting children and bringing them into foster care, and slammed for trying to work with the family to keep them together. i think its time society stopped allowing the abuse to occur and raise the sub-par standards we have for children as well as the excuses we hold for abusive parents. and before the next time you blame the social worker, think about how many hundreds or thousands of lives they've saved, all on a measley $30,000 salary.
