Child welfare officer is ducking for cover after what happened to one toddler in this city

It was a father’s worst nightmare and one that never should have occurred.

But it did, and many are now pointing the blame at the system itself.

Now a child welfare office in this major city is ducking for cover over what happened to a toddler.

One-year-old Justin Bulley was in the custody of the LA County welfare system and on an approved visit with his mother when he died on February 18th.

Toddler dies of fentanyl overdose amid alleged local government negligence

It was later determined by the Los Angeles County medical examiner that the cause of death was a fentanyl overdose.

The child was in the custody of the LA County welfare system and on an approved visit with his mother, Jessica Darthard, and grandfather, Jessie Darthard, at the time of his death.

The mother and the grandfather are alleged to have had a history of drug use and multiple drug and DUI-related arrests.

Montise Bulley was the boy’s father and he had been trying to gain custody of him at the time of his death.

He believes his son never should have been allowed at the house with his mother and grandfather.

Bulley has filed a lawsuit against the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) for $65 million.

He alleges that his son became unconscious and died while his mother, grandfather, and a DCFS social worker were present at the home.

According to the suit, social workers knew of the history of the Darthards’ drug use and placed Justin and his three siblings in their care anyway.

The suit also alleges that the mother and grandfather were drinking and using drugs while Justin and his siblings were visiting the home.

The medical examiner’s investigation showed that the grandfather had been smoking fentanyl.

Bulley told the LA Times, “I don’t care about the money, I want my son. They robbed me. I was devastated. I get that phone call… I didn’t understand. Who gets a phone call like that? I didn’t know what to do. I was just in shock. I just miss my boy, I cry every day almost.”

Father’s Attorney: Visitation Supervisor played Russian roulette with children’s lives

Police reportedly found “glass pipes, baggies with unknown substances and other drug paraphernalia, including some in areas reachable by the children” during their search of the house.

The father’s attorney, Brian Claypool, told KABC, “On the day of Justin’s death, mom and her father are doing drugs, alcohol, and a DCFS visitation supervisor is there.”

He continued, “This person is supposed to protect children and she is at a home while the mother of these young kids and her father are engaging in drug activity. There were massive red flags in this case. In this matter, DCFS played Russian roulette with the lives of Justin’ and his siblings.”

No arrests have been made in Justin’s death, but the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the case.

Fentanyl use and deaths have increased quickly in recent years, happening in tandem with a massive increase in illegal immigration since Joe Biden assumed the presidency in 2021.

The circumstances and allegations surrounding Justin Bulley’s seem to point to another failure of Government-based solutions.
