4 Social Workers Fired...What now?

I would like to first start out by thanking Gabriel's Fight and Gabriel's Justice Facebook Page Administrators and everyone involved for their dedication, passion and unstoppable drive towards making REAL change in the DCFS. 

EGP News reported that a DCFS spokeswoman said four social workers involved with the case have been issued “letters of intent to discharge.” Now what?  According to a statement by Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky: “The department leadership has sent a strong and unmistakable message that the lives of children for whom the county has responsibility are paramount". 

Really?  The horrific fact that this "message" had to be stated is absolutely ridiculous and frankly disgusting.  A beautiful, 8-year-old boy suffers horrific abuse resulting in his death and NOW is the time that you want to get across to your workers that "the lives of children for whom the county has responsibility are paramount?"
