Checkpoint Week 4, Case Study Critique
Some of the possible reasons caseworker were not aware of the conditions in the Jackson home could have been due to the fact that the Jackson made have put up a front every time the caseworker came over by pretending to like and do for the kids, or it could have been that the caseworker knew about the condition but just did not care. It is very hard to believe that these caseworkers really did not know that these kids were being abuse and mistreated. From the information presented in the case study reading, I think the nine members of the Division of Youth and Family Services staff should be fired in which they were, and I also think they should had serve or do some jail time just to send a message to others who don’t take their job seriously. Why they should be fired? I think they should be fired because they were not doing their job correctly, as mentioned in the case study reading, a caseworker visited and saw only condiments and butter in the refrigerators, while the Jackson are receiving or getting food assistance. I think the caseworker should have asked the Jackson why the refrigerator was empty. This goes to show that the caseworker just did not care or was not just doing their job correctly. This is why I think they should have been fired like they did. I believe justice was served in this case. Why, because at the end of the day, all that justice could do was remove or take away the kids and find them a better place or better home and reward them for their suffering. All justice could do also was punished those involved for their wrong doing, in which justice was served. Justice was served because the kids got taken away and received proper treatment after which they were placed in a better situation, they got rewarded by the state with12.5 million, and those involved were punished. So once again, yes; justice was served. Yes, this situation...
