This is just another outrage.
Let the people do the reviewingCPS has no accountability in the system. The public has no faith in them. Open Your Closed Doors CPS.... Let The Rest Of Us See What You Are All About!
This is the only system of government...Anywhere...where people can die and there is no open investigation of the system that allowed it. When top cop of Tacoma, David Brame, murdered, we all saw the investigation. There was a free press that went after this. There were elected officials that hustled around to answer the demands of the public.
But, when children die (eight in Pierce and Kitsap Counties since January), CPS repeatedly hides their operations from the public. From a legislators perspective I see no attempts to hold the system accountable to the children or to the public.
Here is what highly paid, former P.I. Editor and now CPS spokesperson Thomas Shapley, says of the incarceration and starving of the 14 year old. "We're going to thoroughly reviews the case and see if there were things that were not disclosed at that point (three years ago)."
If there was an eleven-year-old who weighed 60 pounds and told her teacher that she was being starved....WHAT COULDN'T YOU SEE? What the hell do your eyes tell you? If you didn't believe she was being starved then you should have investigated for anorexia! Normal growth and development....that is not on your check list? Why would an emaciated child lie to you?
LET THE PUBLIC IN....WE WANT TO SEE WHAT IS GOING ON. WE WANT TO KNOW WHY CPS MANAGEMENT IS SO DANGEROUSLY INCOMPETENT
Don't get the job done...I guess. Just hire the most experienced (he is highly skilled) spin doctor in the state. Thomas, maybe you can tip some of your old buddies in the press to what is going on here. Surely you have some of the social conscience about you. You were a good, caring-heart committed liberal at Seattle's most liberal paper. And now you are paid to cover it up.
