CPS does not have sufficient resources to prevent these incidents. When an adult has committed this kind of abuse on a child, then they must be prevented from being with children forever. In other words, life imprisonment. Any other resolution extends the risk of injury and death to anyone physically incapable of defending themselves in abuse situations.

This is Texas the only way they will take your kids is if you kill one of them first... That is sad and then after they kill one of their kids the courts will say they are sick instead of locking their asses up.

The sad part is he is not even the father he is the boyfriend. I know if it was my kids they would have come got both of us. I would have left hand cuffed and he would have left in a body bag, before he ever had a chance to touch mine more than once.

I THOUGHT CPS WAS SUPPOSE TO PROTECT CHILDREN AND THIS CHILD. CPS MAKES A MISTAKE BY NOT FOLLOWING UP UNANOUNCED AFTER THE CASE IS CLOSED. BECAUSE ALL THESE PARENTS THAT ABUSE THERE CHILDREN AND CPS IS CALLED THEY ARE ON THERE BEST BEHAVIOR DUE TO THEY KNOW CPS IS WATCHING THEM. AFTER THERE CASE IS CLOSED THEY CONTINUE TO ABUSE OR LET THERE CHILDREN BE ABUSE BY BOYFRIENDS OR HUSBANDS ETC. BOTH PARENTS SHOULD BE RESPOSIBLE FOR THIS CHILD DEATH DUE TO IT WAS THE MOTHER'S RESPONSIBLITY TO PROTECT HER CHILD FROM THIS MAN OR ANYONE AND NOT LET HER CHILD BE HURT. CPS NEEDS TO START DOING THERE JOB AND HAVE MORE CONCERN IN THE CHILDS BEHALF NOT THE PARENTS OF COURSE THEY ARE GOING TO DO ALL THE CLASSES AND REQUIMENTS THEY NEED TO DO TO GET THE CHILDREN BACK SO CPS CAN CLOSE THERE CASE AND GET OF THERE BACK.

I know the childs father and he tried to tell CPS that this was going on but they turned the tables on him. Saying it was him inflecting pain to this poor child. I also went to the funeral and the childs mother was acting a fool. I guess she was trying to convience herself that she did nothing wrong. It is her fault and hers alone for placing her own kids in harmsway. Children are truely a gift from God to be blessed daily. This young girl makes me sick. She knows when she faces judgement day that she will face the music once and forall.

What service ,what protection did they provide Jacob Rodriguez ? I too know Jacob's Father he called me one month before this happened and predicted this would happen if CPS did not do something fast! He has tried to get CPS to hear him for months and months!!!Jacobs grandmother had Jacob in her care and the child was safe and well cared for and CPS removed him from her home to return him to a life of HELL!!!This mother NEEDS TO GO TO JAIL she also beat this child and her family have witnessed it! NO ONE SPEAKS FOR JACOB..Dear God help the souls of you who could have helped save him and chose to keep your mouth shut.I hope CPS sees all the power they hold in their hands,that is now dripping with blood. I am ANGRY that this child will never have a chance to have a life of trust and love with his Father Jimmili Rodriguez and his brothers because NO ONE HEARD HIM CRY!

You got that right. I've seen and heard about people that abuse or kill animals and they do time but when it comes to an innocent little child it's either the mother is insane or there's just nothing that can be done. What a f*cked up world we're living in when an animal is more important than a child.

i have to say i worked for the state for 15mths and worked next door to CPS, and there were times when abuse to a child was taking place in our office and we would report it to CPS and they told us to call the hotline the way i see it is that by then it will be too late for kids ...i am a criminal justice major and you are right dog killers and drug dealers get more time than a person who hurts or kills a child.i know the family of luis and they knew what was going on and wanted those kids to be taken away but cps just gave them right back.

It makes me so angry that this is actually taking place as we speak. It's so messed up that when I see a story being reported about a dog or cat
that has been abused you see the police, animal control, and the neighbors getting involved. Crying because what happened to that animal. Then when it comes to a child being abused it's like oh well we didn't know or people knew but never spoke up. Even when a person tries to speak up nobody wants to hear them. CPS is even worst because their excuse is either "we investigated the family several times and they took some classes and everything seem better when we would go visit them at home." Or "the mother or father had a history of violence but it was not enough evidence for us to take action." They shouldn't even call themselves CPS because their not even protecting the child as it is. They protect more those whores drug addicts that call themselves mother. Pathetic!

The stepfather and mother should be both put into prison. The stepfather should be in prison for life on the charges or first degree murder and the mother for second degree murder since she did nothing. Did she even care for her son? I don't have kids but I have little brothers and one sister all younger than me. With each day I watch over them. I know for a fact if anyone tried hurting them I would protect them with my life just to make sure they are safe, alive, and living well. The CPS should really look into this instead of just passing it by thinking everything is ok. Why was the case close? As a matter of fact why do they close cases? The should have still done monthly checkings? Losing my youngest brother to SIDS is hard but to have a son or your brother murdered would be even harder. Doesn't the mother even think? Someone needs to teach the stepfather a lesson!!!! That baby boy Jacob did not need to die. His life would have been saved if the CPS could have done their job!!!

"There are a lot of critics in the world-people who think they've been divinely appointed to search diligently for the smallest fault and then, when it's found, to condemn the person who committed it."
Jesus in Matthew 7:1-5
"Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with that measure you will be judged; and with that measure you use, it will measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye, but do not consider the p lank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother,'Let me remove the speck from your eye'; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank form your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brotherís eye."
