Delay after delay after delay has been 'living nightmare,' parents say
Uncle_Fester says, "Yeah she's walking around free, that's because
she's not been convicted of any crime. What is the problem with that
exactly?"The problem is that a trial should have been held and
justice should have been served six years ago. Shame on the courts for allowing
this to happen.
Justice delayed is justice denied.
Daycare. I honestly have no idea why anyone would willingly put their kids into
one of these places. No only do they cost a bundle, you're leaving your kid
up to a total stranger. I can understand babysitting services for a couple
hours, but daycare implies 6+ hours leaving your kids in the hands of supposedly
trained professionals with very little state/city oversight. No way I'd do
When I first started this article, I was skeptical about the abuse and was
willing to give the day care owner the benefit of the doubt. After reading the
extent of these children's injuries, I am outraged over the lack of any
meaningful investigation into what goes on in this woman's day care center.
Thankfully, the children have survived their ordeal, but this woman obviously
needs to be investigated, shut down, prosecuted or at least and given the help
she obviously needs to stop her physical abuse of children. Being the
grandmother of two children who experienced abuse in a day care center, I am all
for taking a hard stand on this issue.
I issue my strongest possible condemnation to child abuse of any form.
I'm so sorry for these three brave families who have had to endure abuse
and injustice without a day in court for six long years. I'm sad for their
children and grateful there has been tremendous healing in spite of the
inefficiencies of this long process. I hope that my voice is just one among
very many that calls for justice at last!
The inefficiencies and ineffectiveness of big government are nowhere more
apparent than in the woeful performance of the so-called "justice"
system.I've been going through a similar six-year struggle
within a class-action law suit against a person who has absconded with tens of
millions of dollars. And yet, with all of the evidence of his crimes piled up
and obvious to all he is still able to use the legal system against itself to
forestall any effective action to bring him to justice. And, in the meantime,
the lawyers and others in the vast, lumbering machinery of the legal system are
paid handsomely to attend hearings, file charges and appeals, and basically
shuffle papers.The dysfunctions of the legal system start with
ineffectiveness in actually enforcing law, such as the ridiculous negligence in
border enforcement and immigration policies, it continues with outright
corruptions of law, such as the misuse of power by the IRS and ERA, and
culminates in an inability to even effectively address criminal behavior as
horrible as those detailed in the cases of blatant child abuse outlined in this
article.We MUST turn ourselves around.
I am so sorry, it is so unfair and my heart is broken for all of you. Love your
children and keep on trying to prosecute, don't give up. Children are so
precious and innocent and I am proud of all of you for persisting in your
efforts for justice. Praying for all of you. love to all children involved.
Our legal system in this country / state is a joke. Too many laws and lawyers to
protect the criminals. 6 years??Get rid of lawyers and create a system
that brings swift and harsh punishment for criminals. There should be laws that
regulate how long a case can go before either trial or sentencing. Absolutely ridiculous!!
These cases are always difficult but I am usually much more suspicious of
parents and other relatives than day care settings where anyone could happen to
walk in. Articles like this which demonstrate a complete forfeiture of the
purpose of the Fourth Estate which ought to be reporting free of bias, instead
attempt to foment anxiety about the process -you know actually proving who did
what and when- and are not helpful. Justice is not merely a quick conviction or
if the McMartin Pre-School case is any example any conviction at all, nor is it
the pre-determined outcome these people seem to expect. Yeah she's walking
around free, that's because she's not been convicted of any crime.
What is the problem with that exactly?
My commendations to McKenzie Romero for taking the time and effort to write an
understandable and clear account of what has happened with three young victims
and their families. That those in authority should allow this case to drag on
for so long is inexcusable. The child care giver is obviously a manipulator and
irresponsible person, who should have not been permitted to retain a child care
business after the first incident. This certainly doesn't do much for
confidence in the justice system!
