The boy they didn't care enough to rescue would be a better title. Why aren't the child protection workers on trial for child neglect? Was anyone terminated? How could fifteen child protection reports be ignored? What does it mean when they say that the reports were screened out?
If you see it report it

Obviously not much has changed since the 1970's. Reports back then also and nothing was done, and the workers will never be held accountable. What is that term? The kid fell between the cracks. It's pitiful.
