  •  Again, kmfmstar, if you have specific evidence (0+ / 0-)

    Go to the police and refuse to leave until they do something AND threaten to go to the news organizations.

    That lights a fire under their butts 100% of the time, the thought of bad press.

    If you have that much specific evidence, it is past time to sidestep social services and the police if they are unwilling to do anything and go over their heads, to the news organizations.

    •  Why is it so hard to believe (0+ / 0-)

      That I have done all this?  If you don't think we are being victimized in America, ask yourself how the Stuebenville rape case or Trayvon Martin murder were ignored by law enforcement until public outrage embarrassed officials into making arrests?  And the outcomes of both of those cases were disappointing.  

      A reporter for the Sarasota Herald Tribune sat in my living room for two hours, taking notes and promising to do something.  Nothing at all happened.  When I contacted her again, she acted like she didn't remember me.

      I have been to papers, police stations, DCF offices from state on down to local.  I have written all of my legislatures, from the most local all the way to the state level.  Until you are embroiled in something like this, you will never know the utter frustration, hopelessness, rage, disgust and despair to know what an uphill battle it is to try to save a child.  And there are no words to describe how you feel when you realize that in all likelihood, this child will die anyway. Because nobody who has the authority to act will do so.

      Please save a child's life.
