I was referring to the state I live in. Not Texas but close.
Why so long? Sorry if already asked and answered.
I dont think its 'hip' to badmouth CPS. I think its 'woke' (isnt that what all the kids say now a days? lol) to question every move they make. Statistics tell us CPS needs a complete overhaul. Governers across the country always promise to make that happen. It never does. They are a failed system. Too many kids are injured or killed and more are missing, thanks to a failed CPS system. Is there any good with CPS. I am sure there are countless positive stories. But the fact there are way too many failed stories across the country and even closer, NC, is enough to take an innocent father's side (literally no evidence he was not a great father) over the actions of a bureaucratic govt run agency. IMO
According to the National Committee to Prevent Child Abuse, 3 million new reports of child neglect or abuse were made in 1993, one report every 10 seconds. The recent National Incidence Survey III conducted by the Department of Health and Human Services found that fully 72% of all reports received by CPS, or 2,160,000 reports of abuse or neglect, were never investigated by CPS. 1993 records from Children’s Protective Services (“CPS” show that almost half of all children who were confirmed as abused or neglected did not receive any follow-up assistance from CPS.
Of those cases reported, an estimated 1,299 children died from abuse or neglect. 90% of those children were age 5 or younger. And, 42% of the children who died had been previously reported to CPS as being in danger.
NC Child Welfare System Failing Children, Families, Reports Say
North Carolina’s child protection programs get poor marks
Observer Investigation: Deaths point to crisis in NC’s child welfare system
A Fayetteville Observer investigation found more than 120 children have died in the state within a year of their parents or caregivers being referred to a DSS agency. More than 30 of the children were killed — beaten to death, shot, drowned, smothered or poisoned by drugs.
.......way too many sources to link here. I believe hardly anyone's 'careers' are being ended by the consistent failure of CPS.
Parents need to stop abusing and neglecting their children. Family and community members need to step in and try to intervene in abusive situations. When you really think about it, its ridiculous that we put the responsibility for policing our own families on a state agency. Theres a lot said and written about the fallout from our failing families and lack of community support system, but our children are bearing highest biggest costs.
Im not sure which is a bigger pipe dream: praying for people to protect their children and respect their families or waiting for government bureaucrats to step in and change our communities for us.

re April 2nd court date - :dunno:
I would expect a hearing before that time....but it says "Arraignment Hearing", so maybe not.
They are in such bad shape here in Ohio and so many cases, that they are training LSWA's to assist.The most vulnerable of our society and the system fails them. It breaks my heart.
Still no murder charge for EK and still no arrest for KW?
As I said I think Mariah died by an accident and EK and KW panicked and stupidly tried to cover it up by hiding her body and reporting her missing.
I have often thought she might have been ran over with the vehicle that night when they got home, or maybe opened the door and fell out before the vehicle stopped moving.
I've thought an accident of some sort and they felt the need to cover up other things going on in their lives. Never crossed my mind maybe she was run over or something like that. But even if that's what happened, they're covering up something else. imo
I honestly think that the hold up is the Toxicology report. They take up to 6 weeks or more for results. I wont' be surprised if it turns out she was given something that caused her death.
Agree completely with you on this.
Like maybe when she woke in the night someone gave her a sleep aid or prescription to keep her asleep? Disgusting...but my other thought was perhaps the perp gave her something to drug her in order to molest her? Gross- cant bring my mind to that but after reading this forum for awhile it happens...
