DCFS deaths

DCFS deaths

I applaud the Tribune for the article, "How DCFS failed these kids" (News, Sept. 23), which profiled children who died of neglect or abuse after the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services failed to intervene in time. The story of these children and their terrible deaths is heartbreaking and abhorrent. The cold fact that young children die torturous (and preventable) deaths like this in one of the richest countries in the world is mind-boggling beyond belief. This is the kind of story that required a lot of shoe-leather research and time — the type of article that is rarely seen and needed now more than ever in the pressing times we live in. Thank you.
