    Police: Texas man fatally shot his children, sister-in-law

    Police: Texas man fatally shot his children, sister-in-law

    FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The man whom officials say shot and killed his young children and his sister-in-law before shooting himself had just taken a job with Child Protective Services and was in training to be a CPS investigator.

    Fort Worth police Sgt. Joe Loughman said Wednesday investigators believe 32-year-old Ronald Parra shot and killed 45-year-old Melinda Mercado, 4-year-old Alyssa Parra and 23-month-old Michael Parra before turning the gun on himself. Parra’s wife found their bodies Monday in the family home in northern Fort Worth.

    And this guy got a job with Child Protective Services? Only in Texas.

    I think its safe to say that CPS has more than a few bad apples across the US, and not just Texas.

    Unfortunately, many see the "Child Protective Services" as some kind of instant credibility label that places people above reproach....if anything, we need to vet these people that much harder when they are supposed to be entrusted with protecting children.
