I am sickened by this, New Jersey Fires ‘Incompetent’ Social Workers for Letting Boys Starve.
These people may be overworked, but it is by their own design. It also proves that there is money to be made in the foster care industry. The sacrifice these children are giving is intolerable.
“I had staff that were either incompetent, uncaring or who had falsified records,” said Department of Human Services Commissioner Gwendolyn Harris. “I have members of this division who have failed children almost to the cost of their very lives.”
I am shocked beyond words to describe this situation. On top of the trauma of having to endure the abuse of their parents, then forced separation from their family, then unimaginable abuse at the hands of the system that is supposed to care for them, these children have been through hell several times.
