Pop-Ed: As Charlie Sheen continues to dive headfirst off of the deep end and his estranged wife Brooke Mueller stands party to it, the natural question is, why haven't Charlie and Brooke's children nearly two year old twins Bob and Max been put in the care of a competent adult.

Last February, the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services opened an investigation of Sheen's family at the urging of their Colorado counterpart following Sheen's Christmas day attack on Mueller with a knife.

But we haven't heard a peep from them since.

When PopEater placed a call to DCFS we were told they cannot disclose whether anyone's case is ongoing, whether they're famous or not, but they did tell us they respond to calls alleging abuse of a child.

Asked whether they will launch an investigation if the father is a known drug abuser who wants prostitutes to babysit his kids and the mother has moved back into his home and is jetting off to the Bahamas with the father and a gaggle of porn stars, DCFS replied that they typically launch investigations only if a call reporting direct abuse of children is made to their hotline.
