I Blame...Um...Um...

From the Boston Herald:

State social workers who took no action against the mother of a 5-year-old boy found wandering down a busy East Boston highway stood by the woman again yesterday after heroin was found in a car she was driving - with the child in the back seat.

Nothing to see here, people.

The Department of Social Services returned little Joseph Castro to his mother Kayssy, 28, Saturday at about 1 a.m. even after she failed to report him missing for hours.

Everything's fine.

Just hours later, the child was again bundled into a police cruiser, after Boston cops found a softball-size package of 20 to 25 grams of heroin in a Dodge Stratus his mother was driving, nestled at the boy’s feet.

Move along.
