DSHS Needs A Big Dose Of "The Light Of Day"
I will not go into the details of the murders as that is for our regular news sources. And to my acquaintances in the media...bless you as you cover these kinds of things.
The father who killed himself was a known factor at the department. He had an anger problem. He was suspected of child abuse. A parenting plan was established for him. They didn't take his kids, probably, because they were too old. (The state specializes in the marketing of three-year-olds.) His five are dead. They were shot as they slept.
In the meantime, Little Lily's good and loving grandparents are awash with fears and tears. Will they ever get their little girl back?
Will the department ever get it right? Not often...they are not disciplined, there is no accountability, they lie to protect themselves from criticism. They do not want the light of day shown on their problems. They can not solve the problems themselves but by gosh...no one gets to help!
Question: Senate Ethics Board...do you think it is unethical that I have an opinion and that I share it with others? If I thought this agency could be corrected I guess I would not have to say anything. But, hey guys, the legislature, the gov and the AG are just not getting it done. So, Ethics Board...is silence the answer? Just stand by and let it go...? Haven't we had enough of that?
