Missing Irving Boy

"Almost a week after a 2-year-old Irving boy disappeared from a city park, utility workers are monitoring sewer lines in case the toddler fell into a sinkhole, a police spokesman said Tuesday." Have you guys seen the news coverage of this? Mom is chit chatting (or whatever) with her boyfriend in a truck and the two year old wanders off in the park. The police, for some crazy reason, think he was abducted. Then yesterday the news shows us this HUGE sinkhole by the park. Uh. I'd check the sinkhole.

Then, no doubt, we will file a huge lawsuit against the city, county, utility company or whoever caused by their action or inaction this sinkhole to develop. My 2 year old needs to be able to wander away from me and into the woods, while I conduct my business. I should not have to worry about things like streets, rivers, animals or any other harm coming to my child. It is not my job as a parent to be responsible for the safety of my child. So give me a few million so I can move to Highland Park and live like a queen.

Check the mother's stinkhole. It should be sewn shut.

Yeah, I've been a little skeptical of this story from the beginning. The mother was probably doing a lot more than "chit-chatting" with her boyfriend in the truck, and who in the hell lets their 4 & 2 year old go out of eyesight? Very, very sad. Last I heard, CPS had taken the other child in to custody, but I'm not sure CPS does a much better job than this mother.

Sad, very sad.

Hey, I finally get to agree with reagan, fix the derelict mom then put her away for failure to perform her role as mother.

Mary MAck----Do you really know anything about CPS??? Maybe you should go to your local CPS Department and volunteer, see what they go through in one day. Then make a comment.
People always want to blame CPS, but why don't you look at the law, and understand. CPS does NOT make decisions, the judge does.
Read all the court documents on any case you have question about and realize, the law ties the hands of CPS.
Don't mouth until you have ALL the facts!!
There are many cases that go before a judge that the recommendation of CPS is not to return the child, but the judge does it anyway.
I am very offended by your comment!!!!!!

anon 11:15- I've worked in the Court System, and I pretty much know how things work. I know the Judge has the final say in everything, but I'm just going off the cases I've seen in the news where an infant dies in the hands of their foster parents even after CPS has been to the home several times. I know CPS workers are overworked, under paid, and more importantly, under trained.

But, I respect your opinion as you should respect mine.

Why do these fat, lazy mothers sit in the car while their children play?

This isn't just an Irving (unfortunately I was born there, one of the few places that is worse than Wise County) thing. I see it all the time at Robinson, Harmon, and Waggoner parks. Mom sits in the car and the kids play. They sit and stare off into space. Perhaps if you got out and actually did something, you wouldn't weigh 300 pounds.

And your husband wouldn't need that BigDick 50000 Super Pickemup truck to haul your ass around in.

I agree with anon 11:15. Everyone wants to knock CPS when they don't have a clue what CPS is doing. Go to the Dallas CPS office and take a visit. Find out what these folks are really doing. They are NOT undertrained! According to who? A lay person who has no idea. They are underfunded and overwhelmed! This blog is full of ignorant people making ignorant comments. "Check the mother's stinkhole." Are you f..ing kidding me!!!! What are YOU doing about child abuse?

From Beyond Rhetoric: "If the nation had deliberately designed a system that would frustrate the professionals who staff it, anger the public who finance it, and abandon the children who depend on it, it could not have done a better job that the present child welfare system."

Mary Mack...don't get your education from the evening news. If that is what you are going on....you need to shut the hell up. CPS workers are very well trained.

Folks, I've done it. It is unreal what CPS employees and volunteers have to bear witness to and try to help out with. Situations and circumstances that you and I could not handle. They are in the hero class as are teachers, officers, EMTs, nurses, etc. Even the people working at animal shelters are to me worth being in that group. A few bad apples in every bunch, but by and large these folks deal with things that many could not.

there are bad eggs in the CPS system just as there are in any field. The bad eggs are the ones you hear about, not all of the ones who do wonderful things on the job. Bad lawyers who botch a case, bad doctors who loose their liscenses, bad CPS workers who took children away, and then the judge laughed at the evidence and threw out the case before apologizing to my friend for CPS taking her children away with no reason to.

Mary Mack:
It's kind of like lumping all police officers in one bunch, and sayng "all police officers are crooks", when you have many good ones. I for one am a good and conscientious CPS worker and am very well trained (by my own knowledge)! I take my job very seriously and still there is no assurance, that something "bad" won't happen. It's just what we have to live with on a day to day basis.
CPS workers not only has to answer to the court system, the parents, the attorneys, but to the State of Texas as well. It's bureacracy at it's best.
Yes, we are overworked, underpaid and under appreciated.
Yes, there are cases that go awry and children are hurt in the process, which is a total shame!
But, just because you see it in the news, doesn't mean you(the people) have all the facts.
The only CPS cases that make the news are the "bad" ones, there are many cases that have a good outcome for children, but this does not make the news.
