Last year, in conjunction with the Daily Haze, Free our Children released documents pertaining to the murder of a Child whom DCF failed to remove from an abusive home. You can review that story HERE (Click on Link).
Recently, the Kansas City Star released a stunning report concerning the death, and cover-up of another child which had died as the result of DCF negligence. Rather than come clean Phyllis Gilmore, and her agency tried to deceive the media, release only documents which painted them in a good light, and refused to allow themselves to be examined as to how they were complying with the law.
We believe that much of this neglect is planned neglect. Kids in abusive homes tend to have psychological disorders, PTSD and are difficult in placement thereby costing DCF money when they (DCF) have a tendency to go for the maximizing of Federal incentives, and the trafficking of adoptable kids.
This is another tragic story in the awful saga of “Child Protection” under Governor Sam Brownback and Kansas DCF Director Phyllis Gilmore.

COFFEYVILLE, KAN- Sometimes Larry Crosetto puts on old home movies or thumbs through family photos to go back in time.
He sees granddaughter Brooklyn — Brook — sitting with her mama, playing in the bathtub or pushing her new toy vacuum. Before long, the lingering emotional pain creeps in, and Crosetto sees something else: a child lost to a Kansas child welfare system that he views as broken and with no accountability.
“I sat there the other day and thought, ‘Is this just going to die?’ ” said Crosetto, who after Brook’s death spoke out against the system that he says failed to protect her. “Does no one care about these children?”
