Yet Another Fine Example Of How Florida "Protects" Children

These poor children -- abused not once, but twice by the system that is supposed to protect them. And, that's just so far -- who knows what they'll suffer at the next place they are sent to and only God knows what they've been through in other placements that hasn't seeped to the surface of public knowledge.

Excerpts:

"INVERNESS, Fla. (AP) - School officials say three of the five Citrus County children allegedly tortured by their adoptive parents have been removed from their foster home and schools.


Citrus High School officials were concerned that one of John and Linda Dollar's children was working too hard in the foster family's business."

And:


"School officials contacted the Department of Children & Families last week about concerns with the child's leg problem and other issues about the foster home placement.


John and Linda Dollar are each charged with five counts of aggravated child. Five of their seven children told authorities they had been tortured, and some of the children were starved."


Unbelievable. Out of the frying pan and into the fire. Florida officials should be ashamed.

Until Next Time...
