Child neglect in Marion

Marion, IL

#1 Dec 23, 2012
Was walking into Walmart tonite with my hubby. We walked past a rusty old monster truck/SUV with a window partly cracked. Inside were 4 kids 2 cats and a dog packed like sardines. Very sad. Asked them where mom and dad were. Said they had been in there for at least an hour. I told the Walmart worker. Could I have done anything else?

Unfortunately, there are way too many people that have kids that should have never been able to reproduce. I know most, including myself, complain about DCFS but they are overloaded. Don't get me wrong, there could be some major changes and a lot of bureaucratic bs removed. Call 911 next time.

Again, the fault lies with the perverse incentive created by the welfare system and supported by Obarmy. What do you expect when being a baby factory is the most lucrative job around? Oh. I know. Democrat voters.

I bet kids being molested and beat on wouldn't think that way. Or kids being neglected. Would they be better off?

What ages were the kids? And even though I would not have left mine like that remember that what may be just 10 minutes could seem like an hour to them

I agree DCFS is overloaded. they have 30 cases per worker. not 30 kids, 30 families. DCFS is doing their best. The problem is with the parents who refuse to work with their case worker.
