AZ Senator Raises More Concerns re: Missing Children in AZ DCS Custody
Arizona Sen. David Farnsworth listened to citizens concerning missing children in DCS custody. At the beginning of 2019 he gathered a citizen committee together to address their concerns about DCS. He named this committee “DCS Missing Children Committee”.
He invited DCS reps to all meetings to answer questions and do presentations. We got no concrete answers to any questions.
We broke up into sub-committees to write bills to make DCS more accountable in different areas. Sen. Farnsworth sponsored our bills. None of our bills were considered and AZ legislature voted to sine die due to COVID19.
During the course of our DCS Missing Children Committee meetings, Senator David Farnsworth was confronted by another Senator by the name of Kate Brophy-McGee. She proceeded to tell him he needed to stop meeting with us. She went as far as to tell him to “lose the entourage of crazy parents”.
Here is a link to a video of Kate Brophy-McGee when a member of AZ DCS Oversight Group asks her about supporting a bill for alerts similar to Amber Alerts to find missing children from AZ Department of Child Safety.
Fast forward to mid June of 2020. Senator David Farnsworth released a live video which truly shows he has not given up on asking questions regarding the abundance of kids missing from AZ DCS custody and pointing out the skewed numbers that AZ DCS is reporting on their website.
We all know what happened to other state senators who have taken on CPS. Sen. David Farnsworth needs prayers for protection.
