getting custody of your grandchild is not an easy task, in the eyes of the so called DHS and the court system, grandparents have no rights and practically don't even exist. the DHS will not listen to a grandparent when they are reporting the abuse, because they are too close to the situation. went through it many of times. the grandmother did nothing wrong, she reported it, but of course it fell on death ears.

Google Dominick Calhoun. Another tragic story of a 4 year old who died too soon. Seriously, these drug addicts have to go. Death is the only answer for their crimes. This country is a drug infested wasteland. Despite the money to fight drugs, the problem gets worse. Hard and harsh punishment is needed. If it isn't a deterrent, put them down when they screw up. I cannot stand to see this, it is almost weekly I see something like this happening around the country and it always involves drugs.

The people in this worled are ugly. The law is not there for use. Just like the goverment.Look at the pigs that rape and abuse are children and then two years later they are on the street again. WE need to keep these pigs in prison or in a hole in the ground. We need better laws.NOW DHF o.k. thats a big joke they call and let the poeple on DHF know they are coming for there visit. Well now that give them time to clean up there act so the case worker thiks all is well.I think they need to show up out of the blue and then check ever child for abuse and go one on one with the child.Now back to Collin RIP your in GODS hands now.As for the two who killed that baby they will get there I hope she goes to the same prison as her sister they dont like baby killers in prison male or female so they will get theirs.
