  •  It is horrible that, even though it is a felony (0+ / 0-)

    to abuse a child, other laws are "necessary" to protect them.  There should be no exemptions or exceptions to examinations of any institution, private or public, entrusted with the care of its citizens.  Especially the most vulnerable: children, the elderly, the mentally and physically disabled and handicapped.  That independent agencies of oversight do not exist to regulate them all is inexcusable.

    Child "protection" in this nation is deplorable.  The rights of everyone else are protected above and beyond those of the child.  "Reporting" does no good.  Here in FL a statute exists that subjects anyone failing to report suspected child or elderly abuse to $1M fine and/or 5 yrs. imprisonment.  Prior to Oct. 2012, the statute covered members of selected vocations or professions.  In Oct. 2012 the statute was amended to obligate everybody.  

    What good is reporting?  I have been reporting the drugging of my now 3 yr. old granddaughter at the hands of her addicted parents for 2 yrs. now.  I have been threatened with arrest by both police and DCF.  My granddaughter is still in danger, despite multiple positive drug tests of her parents.  They post photos of her high on Facebook.  Their drugs of choice are oxycodone and xanax.  Our family has been in agony.  We are nothing special: our state is full of us.  

    Lazy and sadistic cops, judges, caseworkers and child "protection advocates" populate a living hell of guaranteed torture for our children.  Why we do not have the heads of those responsible is beyond me.  It has been called a broken system, but its not; works just fine for those at the wheel.

    Please save a child's life.
