Protect the children first

I've called them twice to report child abuse and neglect. The first time was years ago. I called them and told them about some kids being badly abused and they went to the home. The people there told them everything was ok and the kids was too afraid to say anything so SS left. I found out later that right after SS left one of the kids was beaten. So I called the State Department and reported it. SS was at the school the next day and saw the injuries on the child and took her right then and there.

I called recently because I had heard someone talking about kids being abused on Skaggs Hill. Worst part was I heard it's the kids grandmother's boyfriend doing it. Well I hope it wasn't like before where the child was beaten after they left. Social Services won't even tell me what the outcome was. They say the law makes it confidential information and they can't even tell the one reporting it nothing. I just hope those kids are safe and well.

I feel so bad for the kids around here. Just yesterday at my son's football practice, one of the other kid's parents was so messed up she couldn't keep her head up or eyes open! All the kids and parents seen this but of course nothing was said. I just hope that there's another caretaker in the home so that these kids won't be in any danger. I will say this though, if this happens again, I will be the first to call Social Services myself on her! If people insist on self-medicating themselves, please don't do it in front of or while you're with your kids!!

Those children will grow up and the truth will be known. Hopefully, they will be protected by God. Why is it social services are not protecting children??? If they investigated the police reports they would know what goes on. Why are the two departments in Jonesville (police and social services) not communicating when it comes to the children being in this kind of situation? I think they just don't care at all.

If they really cared wouldn't they talk to other people, not just the abusers? Most people are wide open books in Lee County. Ask anyone. They simply don't care or they would truly investigate not just talk to the abusers and pat them on the back.

these poor kids are left to be abused. The system failed. Think of that when you lay down at night to sleep social workers!! It is your fault. Every time a child is beaten and you've been told, it is your fault for not protecting them.
