Letter: Shame on DCFS

To the Editor:

This has to be one of the most heart-wrenching letters I have every written.

First off, I need to send my sincere sympathies to the entire community of Crystal Lake.

How do you bury a 5-year-old boy whom has never had the chance to have a fun life gracefully?

I wonder if DCFS has had a chance to look at what, if anything, they missed.

How do you miss a very large amount of calls to investigate?

Why, oh why, didn't it go to a higher administration? I truly feel that DCFS needs to be held accountable.

The parents of that 5-year-old man are nothing more than dirtbags.

The parents need to be put to death in the same manor, only worse, if there is such a thing.

It's time to bring the death penalty back to Illinois and, with this case, no appeals at all.

Shame on DCFS.
