Part 3 of 4

We are wondering why we never see headlines stating CPS has removed the children of this celebrity? Have you ever heard of this taking place? Remember the statement we made in part 3? Read it again.
- Questions; Now you’re thinking,
- why does no one look at the facts, the news stories on what Child Protective Services is doing behind closed doors.
- Why do people in charge continually look in the wrong direction?
- Has anyone found evidence of wrongdoing.
- What have they found?
- What are they doing about the outrageous behavior of a system out of control?
- Why do we continually see negative stories in the news once, and then suddenly like magic they go away and we hear no more about it?
You mean stories like this one.

FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) — Nearly half a million cases of child abuse were reported to California’s Child Welfare Services last year.
A new state audit shows major cracks within that system. The first bombshell: more than 1,000 registered sex offenders matched addresses with foster homes. That means registered sex offenders could be living or working in state-licensed foster homes.
The report also found that counties don’t fix mistakes, even after a child in the system dies from abuse or neglect. And it’s those children who die after they’re in the Child Protective Services system, which caused a local politician to call for the state audit.
CPS must implement changes to the system by January 2012.

Gov. Jan Brewer names CPS task force members Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery will serve as chairman of a newly-appointed committee tasked with improving the state’s child-welfare system.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer created the new task force last month and named its members this morning. The 19-member panel, which includes a foster parents, physicians, child advocates, and lawmakers, among others, will hold at least two public hearings. During those meetings, the members will hear testimony on child protective services investigations and management, law enforcement investigations, social services, foster care and crisis shelters, among other topics.
- Questions; Stories? News media where are you when we need you? There are thousands of these atrocities daily across America. Do we assume it is all right to rip families apart if we are not celebrities? If we are poor and do not have the financial wherewithal to protect ourselves?
