    I commend everyone who finds drugging innocent children abusive. I am pleased that this is being investigated. Please include available alternatives in the investigation of needless and dangerous drugging of children as communication, nutrition and activities that raise self-esteem can far exceed a quick chemical solution. A government that truly looks into and finds the best solution for our future citizens would be the ideal and remembered as a golden age. Please eradicate the psych drugging phenomenon from our schools. There are many other solutions.

    what are the cps folks going to do when these kids become of age and put a big lawsuit on them.after all its whats best for the child but come on now over medicating kids.you teach your kids to not eat sweets it is not good for thier health.i think cps has just gone to far.would these workers do thier own childern such as they do these kids in state care i think not.it sounds to me that cps has gotten caught up in something they can never worm thier way out of now.and its about time these kids have suffered enough.

  4. Finally this is being exposed and long overdue. This is our future and if this is what is happening to our future leaders, what does that say about our future in general? It is worse than sickening and disgusting. Let us finally put an end to the sadness .

    Anti-depressants and behavior drugs are being so heavily marketed to care-givers, to government and municipal agencies, and to consumers it is no wonder people who should know better hypnotically prescribe, administer or consume these risky “solutions”….”meds”.

    Wake up….there are many, many other natural and age-old solutions with predictable results for people of all ages suffering from mental and emotional problems.

    Psychiatric drugs are not for 30% of any demographic as in the case of children in Florida foster care.

    Drugging children for the benefit of the caregiver reminds me of the Casey Anthony case.
    There is a LOT of money in the anti-depressant business and psychiatric psycho babble will keep the public and any authorities sufficiently confused to allow this threat to kids to continue.
    Will Casey Anthony’s lawyer and the psychiatric “public relations” machine set a precedence for drugging kids to shut them up.
    Those responsible for the well being of children should be held to a very high standard.

    I was wondering if you would start a facebook group. It’s important that this child and what he went through is never forgotten. It would help more people to find out about this tragedy. Poor little child.
