Oh Boo Hoo!!! Caseworkers Dispirited Over Charges in Girl’s Death

Caseworkers Dispirited Over Charges in Girl’s Death

Note: Awwwww.

Never before, however, had any caseworker been accused of contributing to a death. But that is what happened this week, when the Brooklyn district attorney announced the indictment of a former caseworker and a supervisor on charges of criminally negligent homicide in the death of a 4-year-old girl.

On Thursday, agency workers, officials and even some child welfare advocates expressed fears that the charges would make a tough job — attracting smart, qualified people — even tougher, and might even make things worse for vulnerable families too.

“I’m very unhappy about it; I feel it’s unfair,” said Susan Greene, a newly hired caseworker who works in Brooklyn. “We do a lot of good work. It is a lot of work.” Potential workers, she said worriedly, “might not want to work for this agency.”

Note: I repeat. Awwwwww.

  1. LOL, awwwwwww. Now some of these effers know what it's like to face criminal charges, guilty or not. I like your recent comment, "Kids are safe in Israel because social workers are on strike."
