In Juvenile Law, the stories of children that DFCS has allowed to be murdered are more numerous than can be counted. DFCS received a report. They came out to the house. They spoke with the parents. Within a week the child was dead. Why didn't DFCS do anything about it?
In Juvenile Law, the Georgia Department of Family and Children's Services ("DFCS") has a Herculean task, to protect children who are being abused or neglected. There is no doubt that their mission is noble; there is little quarrel that their goal is just; but their execution of their mission and goal all too often falls so short that their conduct descends into the realm of the shocking, frightening and even horrific.
