I've written about her before and stated that I thought she should be fired:
The first thing that should be done is to fire Denise Revels Robinson. She is a bureaucrat through and through. After every child's death, she would make the same statement to the effect of "We'll look into it and make the necessary corrections so that it will never happen again." That appeases the public until the next time a foster child dies. The the cycle starts all over.
Now, Crocker Stephenson, the reporter from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is having problems with her as well:
Denise Revels Robinson is the director of the Bureau of Milwaukee Child Welfare, the agency responsible for placing and monitoring Christopher and his sister in the home where she suffered and he died.
I've never had the pleasure of talking to Robinson. Not for lack of trying.
A public servant whose salary is paid by you and me, she has yet to see fit to return our calls.
That ticks me off.
I do not understand how the director of the Bureau of Milwaukee Child Welfare can have a baby beaten to death and a toddler tortured and not feel an obligation to appear in public to express her pain, to extend her condolences, to explain what happened and what she is going to do about it.
Revels Robinson is failing to do every aspect of her job. She is not being held accountable for anything. That is why I am concerned that those fine people that are planning on holding a protest regarding Christopher's death are wasting their time. After ten years of not doing her job, despite numerous deaths under her watch, she still seems present no indication that she is about to take any responsibility that is supposed to come with the job.
The time has come to hold her boss, Reggie Bicha, Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families, accountable to his duties. He is the one that not only has to give us the answers that Revels Robinson won't, but also answer what he is going to do with his employee, that is willfully refusing to do her job.
