Foster Child Murders

It's difficult to find any news source that actually mentions the fact that murdered seven-year-old child, Chandler Grafner was murdered by his FOSTER parents, not his own parents. I had to search for a long time to find this Denver Post article. The problem is, there are TOO MANY children being assaulted, sexually assaulted, and even murdered IN foster care, where they're supposed to be safe. But their own figures (CPS) show that the chance of children being hurt or killed while IN foster care is much higher than in their own homes (although they "bury" it in a mass of statistics). The man who killed him was a foster parent, assigned by CPS, although he CLAIMED to be his "biological father," having at one time been his mother's boyfriend. Then there is the more recent case of a COP who was foster parent to a little girl, and who fondled her one day while she was playing on a swing. He is now on suspension and is "putting in his retirement papers" while awaiting trial. This story is so new I couldn't find mention of it in the media, but what I DID find was a site that listed MANY instances of policemen sexually assaulting children. (YouNewz)
