Problems with CPS Oversight: "Heartbreaking" case results in arrests

A Lubbock County couple — Wonda and Dave Dixon — were arrested at their home Wednesday, Oct. 2, on a single count each of injuring a child.

The Child Protective Services division of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services received a complaint about the Dixons, who have adopted 10 children through the foster care system. CPS was assisted by investigators with the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office with its investigation.

LSO spokesman Lt. Bryan Taylor said the case was “very heartbreaking” to him. He said it’s one of the worst cases of abuse he’s ever seen.

Charges were filed after officials found a 12-year-old girl who weighed 58 pounds. A county grand jury indicted the Dixons Oct. 1 on charges of injuring a child knowingly or intentionally, resulting in severe bodily injury.

1. CPS in Texas...

is a cruel joke. They are a criminal organization. They are guilty of worst child abuse than those they accuse.

Follow the money.
