CPS hunkers down behind stonewalling

9/3/11

It seemed a reasonable enough question.

A 4-month-old baby is found not breathing and near death, according to Chandler police. Baby Josephine suffers 14 broken bones, bruises all over her face and a cigarette burn to her arm.

All this while she is in the custody of a “safety monitor,” a woman entrusted by Child Protective Services with the infant’s care.

So, as I said, it seemed reasonable to ask why CPS put the baby with this woman, and what steps the agency took to ensure that the baby would be safe – back before she became a punching bag and an ashtray.
