Description

ABC reports on "the failure of the Florida Department of Children and Families to protect six children who were under its care." The story reveals that Jacqueline Lynch, a certified foster parent, abused and neglected the six children, siblings of ages between 5 and 15. Nevertheless, the state allowed her and her husband to adopt the children. Lynch has been receiving thousands of dollars for supposedly taking care of the children until the state learned of the abuse from a child abuse hotline. "For almost two years, no caseworker ever came to inspect the Lynch home even though they were supposed to be monthly visits," according to the contest entry summary.
