These people have been called several times to a residence that numerous neighbors are concerned about the neglect, abuse, and drug dealing that's been going on in this house, and time after time nothing ever gets done about this situation! Alot of us are digusted with them and think that it's pathetic and a waste of the working classes' tax dollars to pay these lazy a**es a check every week/month/or whatever!! A drug screen has never even been done to this woman to even find out if she is on illegal drugs, I understand that you just can't walk into somebody's home and assume they are on drugs and whip out a piss cup and make them piss, but if you look around their home and it is not clean, there is trash and animal feces all over the floor, their children are always dirty and wearing clothing thats either too big or too small for them, and the children and the parent have gone door to door asking for food several times, they have no furniture, and it is highly noticeable that there is bed bugs and roaches present in the home, how can they NOT HAVE a reason to drug test? This person gets a monthly income and yet they can't keep their house clean, or provide food or clothing for the children? Come on DCS....it doesn't take a scientist to figure out where the money is going, and it certainly isn't on the children for their needs-it goes on the parent for their drug habit!!! And the amount of traffic that goes in and out of that house should tell you something too!! So, who can we contact that goes above Claiborne County DCS, since they don't want to do their job??? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thankyou!

Is there anybody I can contact like-the state or somebody other than the workers here in Claiborne County? I have gotten no where with these people and I am tired of trying to convince them that there are things going on in that home that shouldn't be. Sooner or later, I am afraid that something will happen to those innocent kids, and they deserve to have a much better living environment than they do!

Yes if you are on drugs and/or dealing they will smack your hands and let the children live on in that mess. But don't let a bruise get on your child if you work and pay taxes and keep them well fed and clean and your house clean. DCS is a joke and yes they play GOD with children's lives and families. I heard they were being sued because a lot of children have died while in foster care.
