What happened in this case is truley sad, my heart goes out to his family. Hopefully he will not have died in vain. This town needs to institute some changes in it's policy of how children are handled when their worthless, junkie mother and her abusive lover are arrested. I don't know... maybe look after the wellfare of children, instead of patting themselfs on the back for doing something.
You are so right

Something does need to be changed about how children are handled when they are found in unsafe situations. When an arrest is made and children are in the home, it's idiocity to think the parent or adult in the home would desinate a safe place for the child during an arrest. They obviously have not made decisions with the best interest of the children in the past. Why would they start now? Are these regulations not set by the State of Texas? A legitimate family member attempted to gain custody of the child but something was said about a 72 hr waiting period. What was this about? Children and elderly are the most vulnerable persons in a community yet they don't seem to get the proper assistance until the damage is done? APS/CPS? They do not prevent harm. They may help after the damage is done. Did you know it's legal in Texas for an egg-donor, aka mom, to move her underage child or children in with a registered sex offender as long as she lets the other parent know? So sad that precious children who are dependent on their parents and trust them to make decisions in their best interest are left to defend for themselves. What a sad little life. So innocent yet placed in a horrible situation by a parent who he trusted to protect him. Little child you are now out of this harsh world and in the loving arms of a loving God. To these so called adults that caused your suffering and took your small innocent life; How could you harm this little child? What did you think when you saw the suffering you caused this child? Are you made of stone? Do you think others no have feelings? I don't understand.
