No surprise here. I've lost count of the families turned into CPS for similar things and the investigation is unsubstantiated with the families being called wonderful people. Kids are not a priority in Indiana

That story makes me so mad. I would love to have a hr alone with each of them with a roll of duck tape.

Whe they get locked up, they will realize what abuse is like. Convicts love child abusers.

The system fails these children. People get reported al the time but they fail to take the children!! Even though this was a foster family they were not properly visited by CPS workers. And when it comes to the mothers cps is to busy wanting to keep the family together to worry about the children. It is really a shame that cps walks around with their eyes closed!!

You're right about everything but the statement that they walk around with their eyes closed. If they bother to investigate at all, they see what's in front of them, then lie about it later. The government system leans towards the lower life forms. Just look at these 2 people, you can tell at first sight what they are. These types of people assure caseworkers of their paychecks. The scum of the earth keeps them employed, they'll protect them to the end. The kids are just collateral damage.

The Case worker for the Foster children are supposed to be checked on at least once a month in the home. What happened with that? And what about the unit that is supposed to check on Foster Parents so these things don't happen? Disgusted that the safeguards that the state has put in place to police the very thing that these Foster Parents are accused of were not done as they should have been. These poor children would not have been abused. Shame on you DCS !

do you really think once a month check is going to prevent this crazy stuff? i dont think that is why this happened. if you knew someone was gonna come check your house once a month i would guess you could fake it for one day.

Amen!! It looks like James Payne stepping down and making that dept look bad wasn't enough to make them do the right thing.

Hmmm... Smart one... You are awful defensive...if a Foster Parent doesn't answer the door when a Case Manager knocks.... That would make me wonder what they are hiding. That should be a clue. Go get your job back waiting tables!!

If a foster family adopts a child(ren) child protective services close the case. These kids were adopted 8 years ago!!! Why would they be knocking there is no more random or scheduled checks period!!!

He shouldn't have ever been able to care for children other than his own given his criminal history.
