According to Washington, D.C. mayor, Adrian Fenty, city social service workers had a “check off the box” mentality when it came to looking after four children who were murdered by their mother.
In a CNN report today, Fenty said that six employees will lose their jobs, following one of the most horrific cases of “social worker abuse” in the city.
The six employees who are being fired work for the District of Columbia’s Child and Family Services Agency. More workers could lose their jobs as an investigation continues, Fenty said.
The prevalence of neglect, abuse, and the murder of children supposedly being protected by city and state social workers should anger all of us. I can think of no other name for this crime than “social worker abuse.” By failing to perform their jobs, they are directly responsible for the mistreatment of innocent kids.
