Quote from: Solar on October 07, 2021, 12:27:43 AMMissouri Social Services Lost Foster Kids to Sex Trafficking, and All GOP Lawmakers Can Do Is Say They're 'Disappointed'The federal watchdog's review of 59 cases in 2019 found that nearly half of the case files contained no evidence children were reported as missing to local law enforcement or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, as required by federal law and state policy.In one instance, a child had been sex-trafficked in as many as four states while missing, the report read."Kids are getting made prostitutes. And I don't like it," Rep. Dottie Bailey, R-Eureka said. "I don't know where we go from here."It seems to me that lawmakers should get the FBI involved, or the attorney general or the Department of Homeland Security—or maybe the U.S. Marshals Service. What's going on here is a crime. Is anyone going to treat it that way?The report, and the resulting House hearing, is only the latest example of legislative criticism of the department. Lawmakers have held a series of hearings over the last year on the department's lack of oversight of unlicensed youth residential facilities accused of abuse that has expanded into the department's handling of a variety of issues, like layoffs of Children's Division employees.The frustration among members of the committee was palpable Tuesday."What I heard was a department that has left the hearing early, who didn't have answers to the questions that we were asking, and I'm really disappointed..." Rep. Mary Elizabeth Coleman, an Arnold Republican and chair of the committee, said in reference to DSS officials leaving before the hearing had finished. "There are people who are sitting on this dais who are furious."https://pjmedia.com/columns/megan-fox/2021/10/06/missouri-social-services-lost-foster-kids-to-sex-trafficking-and-all-gop-lawmakers-can-do-is-say-theyre-disappointed-n1522188

Quote from: RV on October 07, 2021, 01:53:59 AMGee, I wonder if they are "disappointed" that there are a plethora of new Democrat voters now or are they "disappointed" that they didn't think of it first?
