What a joke! Muhlenberg County Social workers are lazy and need to do their job! They do not know how to distinguish when a child is in danger and being neglected from a child that has it made. A dirty house is not a reason to remove a child from a home!

A dirty house isn't a good environment for a kid you dipshit! Guess you got busted by cps. Serves you right if you did. Clean your nasty ass house up and live right. And a dirty house isn't setting a good example for a kid either! Think about the dumb shit you're gonna say

I kinda agree with crazy. There have been some very bad cases of child abuse that have been overlooked because they are more worried about unclean houses. I also agree that a dirty house isn't a good environment but I know that Social Services have not taken care of some serious situations because they don't want to put time into really checking things out. I know of several situations where there has been severe physical abuse and they were called and set back and done nothing.

I believe these social workers are over worked and under paid. They haven't received 1 cent of wage increase in 6 years. These are college educated workers who actually deserves hazardous duty pay. Mean while their work loads continue to increase. These people don't make much money and they still are devoted to their jobs. They are human, they make mistakes. They care about children in a county where over 50% of the children in Muhlenberg county are being raised by grand parents. Wow!!! Before you ask, I'm not a social worker.

hmm, Just Do it. 50%... that is a high number. I volunteer for several Youth organizations in the County. Also volunteer for a couple of youth organizations in the Middle and High School. I disagree with your 50% number. All the youth that I serve, only a handful are raised by their grandparents. As for Social Workers, probably underpaid, sometimes overworked. You study a field of occupation before you get into it. Apparently these College Educated people didn't get that. The pay scale for these jobs have always been kinda low. That is an industry Standard. Being Dirty is NOT neglect. We live in the spoiled USA. I do know over 50% of the worlds population live in filth daily. As long as a person is cared for properly that is all that matters here. And in some cases some children fall thru the system. Muhlenberg County is a small knit community. These Social Workers know the "at risk" families, its just a matter of being proactive and getting off their fat ass and investigating or doing something about it. Police should be able to escort these folks in some cases. Most of the Police in the Berg spend 90% of their budget on the same 5 % of residents, this will be manpower, operating expenses, etc. They have time. I remember the Social Worker killed in Henderson, people knew these folks were aggrevated in the first place. Look at Todd County, 9 year old Amy Dye was beat to death, before all this happened, Teachers at South Todd Elem tried to intervene. The Social Workers there done nothing, Amy was just a "file". It was too late for that innocent girl. Actually a Teacher was the person to find her Body after an extensive seach. Social workers in that case should have been charged with something. We can ping pong until the moon turns blue. Anyway, no law against Filth, hell, look at some areas of the berg, some folks like to live dirty. I have an example here, Look at a Professional person, 6 figure income, etc. works 12 or more hrs a day, their children rarely see them but on weekends and they live in the same house.(foxboro) I believe that is more neglect than filth. You can always clean up but it is difficult to erase emotional scars. Children need our time, not our damn money or 6 bedroom house etc. just my opinion.

The 50% is actually a little low, it's a little higher than that. Ask the schools guidance counselers, they know the exact number. Oh bye the way almost 60% of the county's taxes comes from senior citizens drawing social security. I bet you didn't know that either. I guess the senior citizens are not only paying most of the county taxes, but also raising the children.

You know, the ones who complain about doctors are not doctors, the ones who complain about the police are not policeman, and the ones who complain about social services and not social workers. SO SO SO easy to point your finger but if...only if... you knew half of what you talk about, then you might, just might be intelligent. You volunteer, stick with volunteering. If you want to complain about social services, then be a social worker. None of you have no clue about what your talking about, nothing. Knowledge fact #1: Social workers have no authority to remove anyone's children. They get that authority through a judge and if the child's life is not in imminent risk of harm, THEY WILL NOT GET THE EMERGENCY REMOVAL. But see, I don't have the time to tell you about what I know because you are no body, who knows nothing. I bet you don't even know without Google what #1 KRS stands for (Kentucky Revised Statutes) and #2 what KRS even addresses child abuse. So, Big Daddy, great name, stick to what you know,volunteering. Where you have no stress, no accountability, and have no clue as to what you are saying......and yes, I've been a worker for 11 years.

this is true but from what i've seen with social services is they remove children from dirty homes and tend to overlook much bigger problems and situations. The simple fact is because their lazy and don't want to take the time to work on the real problems. just sayin
