    In my view, the documented failures of CPS in investigating and adjudicating "alleged" child abuse cases should not be viewed superficially. In fairness to those who work on these cases for CPS, one needs to restrict blame and fingerpointing without having all of the facts presented. There are questions to answer first: 1) Did CPS have the resources to implement Arizona laws? 2) Do CPS case investigators have a workable caseload, or does the system assign hundreds of pending, old, and new cases to each investigator? 3) Does the legal system hamper case investigators in many cases? For example, can counselors and lawyers for the accused discourage or delay investigations of abusers, thereby extending the time in which adjudication can be resolved? 4) Does the court or hearing schedule unnecessarily delay cases needing more prompt resolution? If news agencies would investigate these cases in a fair and balanced manner rather than in a spectacular and emotionally charged way, then perhaps truth would triumph, solutions found, and some reputations left intact.
