So am I wrong thinking that CPS says it is OK for an infant to live in a house that should be condemed! There is NO running water in the bathroom! the kitchen sink is draining into buckets. There are boxes and trash all over. You literally have to walk through a path to get through. One room is cleaned up enough to put a twin mattress on the floor (which is where mom dad AND baby sleep). Now the mother will put a bottle in the baby's mouth everytime she makes a sound. I honestly dont hink this baby has had ONE BATH in months! What kind of mother feeds her infant baby DONUTS and CANDY!! seriously! What is CPS thinking? If something happens to this child who is going to feel bad? Who is going to take responsibility? Am I the only one who thinks that this is WRONG!?

are they beating the baby ? is it starving? im sure they wont live there forever . some people are pigs and i remember seeing that before nobody died . some kids dont get fed they are beat when they make a noise . givem a break maybe their parents were pigs and they grew up like that . where there is love there is hope . so many young people are clueless a mentor program would help.

sound like you have called codes not cps, the landlord sound like a bum. and you said the mom baby AND DAD sleep in the same bed...at the very least they are both involved in their childs life. why is everyone so up to call cps and have kids torn from their parents,,, u ever think about helping them? so they can help themselves.

but when mom calls ot for help because the house is unsafe! someone takes mom and baby in, helps her out and she returns! mind you this baby is only a few months old!I know the person who took her andbaby in. Spent their money, burned their gas opened their door, asked nothing in return because she said that she HAD to get out of there. Only to have her go back a couple days later! Would it make a difference if you knew she had done this before?? now she has nothing to do with her first child!

I agree with "educateurself". How old are the mom and dad? Maybe try helping. You could help her find a place that is acceptable to live in. Politely,offer some advice about what is and isn't good for a baby to eat. Suggest that they can come to your home to bathe the baby if their water is not working. A good way to do this is to say 'Until you can get your landlord to fix the water,please feel free to come use mine to give her a bath.' This way you are not belittling the mom. You are placing the blame on the landlord and at the same time giving the mom a chance to realize that the baby needs a bath. BUT,since you already called CPS on them,none of this is going to work.

It won't do any good at all to call CPS again. I know of a place even worse than you describe that is a death trap. I know that CPS has been called numerous times and I personally have called. When they did come to the house it was only after making advance warning calls so that the violations had a chance to be fixed. Twice they were just turned away at the door because the mother did not have time to talk to them. They just plain do not care!!! Judges like Gannon are also responsible for allowing this problem to exist. He does not care either.

Cps wouldn't know abuse if it smacked them across the face. I know someone who's had cps called on her by everyone and their grandmother! And they don't do anything! She has four kids and one on the way all under the age of 7 and she abuses them physically, mentally and emotionally. She screams in their faces if they disturb her facebook time or cigarette smoking time. She hits them. She smacked her three year old across the face like he was a grown man for biting his sibling. Harsh punishment much? Now her two year old is severely hurt. Legs broken. How does a two year old "accidently" break his leg? Doesn't sound like accident to me.

I agree cps is worthless. You don't even have to let them in if they come to your house. Gannons the worst judge in the county. Makes you wonder how they let this moron sit the bench. He thinks he's high and mighty but never wants to deal with facts. He's just another corrupt Roman a$$
