Child Protective Services employee tell 14-year-old to become a prostitute

A Child Protective Services (CPS) employee was just caught on camera telling a 14-year-old girl to become a prostitute, Fox 26 reports

The situation took place in Harris County, Texas.

Background

Keisha Bazley is the mother of nine children. She has been having difficulty raising her 14-year-old daughter. The girl, according to her mother, has been getting into trouble a lot at school and frequently running away from home.

To help with the situation, Bazley decided to turn to CPS. So, CPS has been caring for the girl.

The 14-year-old is being kept at a hotel in Harris County under CPS supervision. She is one of dozens of foster kids in the area who are being cared for in this way by CPS.

The video

According to Bazley, her daughter told her that a CPS employee has been telling her to do some things that no good parent would ever tell their child to do. In order to prove this, the 14-year-old decided to capture the CPS employee in the act on camera, and it worked.

The circumstances of the video are not exactly clear. It is hard to make out much from the recording. But, the audio is a different story – it is clear.

At one point in the video, the 14-year-old girl could be heard asking the CPS employee for some food. And, the response that the girl received from the CPS employee was to become a prostitute.

Complaint filed

Bazley responded to the situation by filing a complaint with the CPS.

“This should not happen to girls in their care,” ‘Bazley said. “It should not happen. It’s unacceptable.”

It is reported that the employee, who has been identified as a member of CPS support staff, has been fired from her position. The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) put out a statement, saying:

DFPS is aware of the video and has taken action. The person in the video – who was employed as CPS support staff – was dismissed from her position August 10. The safety and appropriateness with which children in care must be treated is our paramount concern. Nothing less will be tolerated.

The concern now, however, is that the problem may be more widespread than this one incident.
