(Great post of yours, btw.)
But hey, on this current subject -- I agree with you. I also agree with others that the mom's a booster and a grifter and was in the process of doing so when this all went down. Especially after seeing the mommy on Van Blondie on FNN last night.
Yet the mom loves her daughter, and that "beating" looked like a lot of arm motion, arm waving and wailing and little or no effective contact -- and since I've been in fights I can dang well tell -- that is -- what can be told at all from such restrticted angle and no so high quality video.
I'm not for putting the child into the hands of a bureaucracy when a good Doctor has examined her and found naught.
This is all the a hawker's sway over a mob to move some goods, and the media is pulling the biggest grift of all and doing far more the harm, such as be seen with ninny weak willies like "alnick".
The FReeper lynch mob better get a move on before there's nothing left of her to punish./semi-sarcasm
When it was reported that she had videotaped her daughter I figured it had been sans clothes. It wouldn't have been worth anything as evidence if it weren't. It also crossed my mind that she would be accused of child pornography. The pea sized minds of statist tyrants are so easy to predict.
Has anyone wondered why, out of the hundreds of far more horrible cases of child abuse, this one is the one the media chose? There are certainly more graphic examples to be had if child abuse is truly the issue they want to galvanize public opinion on. Has anyone wondered 'why now?'? In terms of a media blitz that is.
Did Greta and Geraldo just discover child abuse this week?/sarcasm
After all the jealous speculating that 'people who migrate to do seasonal work don't deserve and cannot possibly afford SUV's and other nice vehicles therefore they must have stolen them' will they take it back if it is found that they legally bought them and their payments are current? Will it even be reported?
I guess that will be academic after the IRS seizes their vehicles and their trailer. Which in turn will strengthen CPS's case for removal of the children. No home, no means of earning a living without cars, bankruptcy and all that.
Isn't interdepartmental cooperation between the Feds the States and local gov's a beautiful thing? I feel so much more secure now that the government has a handle on the Irish Traveler/child slapping thing. The need for armed pilots and tighter borders was just hysterical overkill in the wake of 9/11.
Am I that transparent?
