Re: “Months after the rehoming of their adopted daughters was made public, Justin and Marsha Harris have yet to face consequences

Has anyone contacted one of the large National Child Advocacy Organizations about suing the State of Arkansas on behalf of these girls? This case infuriates me and I'm a former CPS worker from Texas (worked for the State as a child abuse investigator for 10 plus years) and served on the Dallas County Child Death Review Committee. SO many thing need to change in this state beginning with administration in Little Rock!!!!

Re: “Parents of slain Bella Vista child had parental rights terminated on multiple other children in 2005

I am just horrified by the ineptness exhibited by the DHS. I am a Licensed Social Worker who spent a majority of my career (in Texas) working for Child Protective Services. I served on the Dallas County Child Death Review Committee and honestly feel this is one of the worst cases of abuse I have ever heard. I am appalled at the seemingly lack of knowledge those charged with protecting our children have when it comes to investigating allegations of abuse and neglect. Child Abuse Investigation 101 - family history IS important. Common sense tells you if someone lost custody of other children due to abuse and neglect there is something wrong. This is especially true when you have repeated calls regarding the welfare of children in that same home. I am honestly just sickened by this whole situation. Maybe, just maybe, the death of this sweet boy will spur action and change when it comes to DHS.
