How can I get Dateline to Investigate?
I live in a small town in Montana and I work with troubled youth. Over the last 3 years I have seen Department of Family Services completely drop the ball on abused and neglected kids. I've seen kids promised they won't have to go back home for at least 30 days and then an hour later after talking to their supervisors they say the have to take the kids home. These are not cases of parents disiplining their children, these are cases of torture , rape and horrible neglect and abandonment. DFS has repeated told me the child is old enough to defend themself. I feel so helpless no matter how much I try to help a child DFS doesn't do their part. I was in care when I was a kid I had a great social worker. I recently called her to get advice and she said the reason she left DFS was because the focus had gone away from child welfare and was now focused on parents rights. We will have a dead child in this county. there have been many calls to them that there has been no follow up. Not even a phone call. I'm so frustrated. Any suggestions? Thank you
