Re "Tim Donnelly wants to abolish CPS, start over from 'ground up'" (SacBee.com, April 8): Child Protective Service workers have taken it on the chin far too long. Their work is difficult and stressful. Their life is at risk each time they investigate a complaint or perform the emotional task of removing a child from its home.
Mr. Donnelly needs to shadow a CPS worker in the field before he talks about requiring videos/recordings of investigations or abolishing CPS. CPS has not failed the children in their care. It is abusive parents of these children who have done the failing.
It's a sad fact that we need an agency to protect children from abusive parents and if Mr. Donnelly wants to abolish something, he should try his hand at abolishing child abuse.
