Consider This...CPS needs serious overhaul

I've followed with great interest KCBD's investigation into the family accused of abusing one of their 10 adopted children.

So far, our investigation has uncovered a criminal history dating back two decades; we've discovered evidence that more abuse was happening.

And we've raised questions to CPS that they refuse to answer - like why it took five complaints against this couple before they called the police.

And we've also revealed questionable spending habits with the thousands of tax dollars this couple was given for the care of the children.

Consider this:

Unfortunately, these 10 children are now back in a system that failed them the first time. KCBD's mission is to promote positive change in that system.

I think it's time for a complete investigation and overhaul of the Texas Department Of Family and Protective Services. specifically the Children's Protective Services division.

This investigation should have every politician in the state doing every thing within their power to better protect children.
