This story is confusing to decipher.  

DALLAS - A baby's caregiver was twice denied help from Child Protective Services with day care in the weeks before her 14-year-old daughter was accused of drowning the infant in their Dallas apartment, according to an Office of Child Safety report.

The teenager is charged with capital murder in the drowning of 2-month-old Justice Hull in January. Prosecutors are trying to have her certified to stand trial as an adult, and a hearing has been set for next month. Police have said the drowning happened shortly after the teen's mother went to work.

The caregiver was a family friend of Justice's mother, who was in jail. The report says the woman was "eligible for day care assistance."

Spokeswoman Marissa Gonzales of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services told WFAA-TV: "Child care . can go a long way to toward making a placement safe, toward making it stable. That could have been offered here, and should have been here."

The report says the woman's request was denied because the "investigation was identified for closure." But the report also says it's unclear whether the investigation was set to be closed or whether CPS was filing for a temporary conservatorship.

The woman had told officials she might not be able to continue providing care for Justice because a 19-year-old who had been helping would return to school soon and she couldn't afford daycare, the report said. The woman worked with Justice's other relatives and continued caring for her after she was told the child might have to be moved to a different family or placed in foster care.

Justice was born in November to a mother with a history of substance abuse, according to the report. Justice tested positive for cocaine and phencyclidine, or PCP, and remained in the hospital during withdrawal.

After her mother was arrested, Justice was placed with the family friend under a plan developed by CPS and her mother. CPS had responded to allegations of neglect and abuse by Justice's mother with Justice and other children 10 times before Justice's death, the Dallas Morning News reported.

The report does not name the mother, caregiver or teen.

The fact that all involved were FSA animals and having visiting this thread I really don't give a fuck. Just kill the mother and grandmother so we can save productive tax payers some money.

Not actually a capital case since SCOTUS prohibits the execution of anyone who is younger than 18 at the time of the crime. Could be life in prison if the adult thing sticks though. I wonder which is cheaper for the taxpayers.

Why not? Anyone who sides with abortion should side with this mother.

Margaret Sanger is laughing in her grave.

I guarantee that CPS was taking all its attention to another family when a parent swore at their kid and CPS had to use all services on that.

The Republicans are to blame for holding the family down
