Let’s ask for accountability

By
From page A6 | June 19, 2013 |

Thank you for your articles on the sad breakdown of EMQ FamiliesFirst. If the letter to the editor by Ellen Cohen on Friday was correct, FamiliesFirst was stripped of the right to restrain these children by Community Care Licensing 22CCR84072 (23).

Analogously, isn’t this like sending our police out without the ability to restrain offenders or our firefighters to order people out of a burning house? Is it possible to find out why the EMQ FamiliesFirst director didn’t cite this rule in The Enterprise article? Isn’t appropriate restraint an essential element of every family, school, youth club, etc.? Breaking arms isn’t appropriate, of course.

Finally, is it possible to ask for accountability rather than blame for this whole incident, since blame almost always falls into the domain of the egocentric.
