    Oh, this so well explains how I feel, as well. We revised the child abuse laws in the 80s and never looked back.
    Now there will be a shifting of the blame (jmho) and we will see the news, politicians, the community, us, define many fixes to the system. They just never happen. Then tomorrow there is another missing child and the saga starts over again.

    I've not read Illinois statute but usually the murder count will stack for murdering child under age 12, murder by person in position of trust (i.e., parent), etc. I'm sure there's at least 5 aggravators for each of these parents. Sadly - this kid never had a chance. :(

    Admittedly, I can't stand DCFS incompetence. But I wouldn't work there for anything. The jobs are low paying, from my perspective, for the level of work and responsibilities.

    I was offered a contract to provide training for caseworkers, and honestly, it is such a huge, complex job, that I didn't really want the job...it would have been a "check box" "We provided comprehensive training on case management". A bandaid on a massive coronary.

    According to his discipline record, he was representing a client with divorce when he received infraction so I don't think he practices criminal law. MOO

    Sorry, haven't found that yet. Most attorneys from my area may practice and advertise in one area but still take cases in other areas. It's usually based on what they type cases they prefer to work with but they aren't limited by anything as they all pass the same bar.

    By Sun-Times Editorial Board-

    AJ’s parents have been charged with his murder, which should surprise nobody.

    AJ had been born with opiates in his system, according to authorities. And there was the family’s long record of contact with state child-welfare workers.

    People feared the worst when he went missing — we certainly did.

    But a charge is a charge, not a conviction. And nobody knows — not yet — how and when and why AJ died. That will all come out.

    Nobody knows, too, if DCFS did enough. If the agency, which said it plans to examine its “shortcomings” in this case, did all it could.

    That, too, will come out.

    To be honest, we’re just feeling sad, like you.

    We study a photo of AJ, the one in which he’s wearing the Nike cap, and we think we see strain in that little face, behind the smile.

    We hope we’re imagining that. We hope he was happy, at least on that day.

    AJ’s days were so few.

    EDITORIAL: AJ was 5, and summer was coming on

    To be honest I was surprised when I found out she was pregnant because pictures shown of her earlier made me think she was much older.

    He doesn't appear to have a website. Just a standard Google listing, showing the house.

    Yes, saw that. It's not that uncommon in smaller areas or word of mouth suffices. My FIL stopped using a secretary and office many years ago.

    It wasn’t enough for me to merely “like” this post. I’m quoting you in the event anyone missed it.

    Does any member want any specific areas video recorded?

    I can film areas requested by members here. I live a very short distance from the home and where A.J. the Angel was recovered.

    FYI we had an intuition that one or both of the parents were involved from the start.

    As the news cycle evolves and more focus is put on family history, evidence and role of DCFS, this example may/may not come up. Pamela Knight, a DCFS worker with 11 years of experience, was brutally beaten Feb 2018 when she was attempting to remove a child from a dangerous home . . . She died from her injuries. One year later: AFSCME member Pamela Knight killed in the line of duty

    They wear orange at our jail whether municipal, state, or federal. It changes in the prisons.

    I feel bad for AJ's foster parents. They must be devastated

    The color depends on their holding status.
