More from NJ

The New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services is taking a lot of (well-deserved) criticism for their failure to recognize the abuse of those four adopted boys. Despite having been visited 10 times by 3 different social workers, nobody reported the problems. Fortunately, it looks like the state agencies are asking many of the same questions I asked in this blog a few days ago, and they've already taken action to fire nine workers who were responsible for the house.

What scares me is that since nobody caught on to this abuse until the oldest was rummaging in garbage bins, how likely is it that there are other families out there with similar circumstances of abuse? Parents who don't let their kids go rummaging?
