Make them ac­count­able

Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - Opinion -

An­other child, Baby Noah Cu­a­tro, has died on DCFS’s watch.

On May 21, 2019 the state is­sued an au­dit re­port ti­tled, 2018-126 (Google & read this short re­port & be out­raged), that blames DCFS su­per­vi­sion for:

“Not Ad­e­quately En­sured the Health & Safety of Chil­dren in Its Care”

This should have been our red flag! There seems to be a fail­ure of su­per­vi­sion and re­spon­si­bil­ity from top down in the Palm­dale DCFS of­fice in par­tic­u­lar and DCFS as whole.

From the Palm­dale of­fice man­ager, Laura Shotzbarge­r, to the as­sis­tant re­gional man­ager who must sign off on all re­movals, to line su­per­vi­sor who failed to ex­e­cute the court or­dered re­moval is­sued in May (long be­fore Baby Noah Cu­a­tro al­legedly drown).

It ap­pears no su­per­vi­sor took re­spon­si­ble to act on be­half of the health and safely of Baby Noah.

Be re­spon­si­ble, Su­per­vi­sor Kathryn Barger, and hold those in su­per­vi­sion re­spon­si­ble in DCFS for Baby Noah Cu­a­tro death ac­count­able.
