A post on TomCat's blog. Three things this week which seem to me to command the attention of the Greek Furies.

Ghastly yet appropriate set for the furies Joanne.

I read that the DA's office invited the FBI in to investigate whether any of the nurse's civil rights were violated.

Too many still treat children as property and do not use a pillow to punch when angry.

Every day horrors, Joanne. So many of our species are so very sick. It is despairing to know this. I've spent my entire career involved in situations much like these, particularly the child welfare case. This past week here in Minnesota a mother who was upset at her ex-husband, after having filed numerous false reports against and refusing to take part in court ordered mediation, took her own life and that of their five year old son. That we can be so horrendously cruel is just sickening. I just so wish there were something one could do to stop this. If I could, I would, in a heartbeat.

Tisiphone: So vicious!! Those poor defenseless folks! I grew up and was taught this motto: "Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you." Obviously, this guy didn't.

Alecto: Kudos to Mr. Gill for stepping up for this case. I still think that the officer who violated Ms. Wubbel should NOT be on PAID leave, nor his boss.

Magaera: Oh, horrors, and how horrible!! to read this. The sweet little one!! I do believe that there is a special place in Hell for those who inflict pain, and cause suffering/death. Blessings to his dad/grandpa in relieving their pain.

Set forth your Justice, Furies. You have a busy week ahead.

Thanks, Joanne for posting.

Tisiphony: Running over innocent (sleeping homeless) people with a truck with the intend to kill them, isn’t that an act usually linked to terrorists? Could you please make sure that Jeremy Thacker’s deed is labeled a hate crime if not a terrorist act, so they can throw a whole heap of books at him?
And please don’t forget about going after the Georgian cop who ran over a black man just because he thought he was a suspect.

Alecto: You know it’s getting really bad when hospitals need to introduce special precautions to safeguard their personnel from police officers! When I first read the story about nurse Alex Wubbels’ heroic refusal to break the law, I thought it was bad enough, but now it has become worse with the additional information that the victim in question, apparently a cop himself from a different police force, was involved in a deadly accident resulting from a high speed police chase (by the arresting officer Payne?). There’s a lot for you to shed some light on, Alecto, but with officer Payne’s superior involved too, you may have some trouble getting through a lot of police force stonewalling.
The update seems to confirm my suspicions: the DA has asked the FBI “for a complete investigation into all personnel who may have violated Wubbel’s civil rights, and that includes the hospital security and university officers who were seen on the video doing absolutely nothing to help nurse Wubbels.” Investigating nurse Wubbels’ colleagues now, but not a word about the police department? Sounds too much like a Drumpfian diversion to me. You better look into this too, Alecto.

Megaera: OMG, I wish I hadn’t watched that video. Reading about little Evans death was bad enough, but then came reading about poor abused Mechi and seeing the horrific torture Adrian’s parents put him through for nine months and documented right up to the death of this sweet 7-year-old. All three died at the hands of their own parents, not in foster homes, not killed by some horrid perverted stranger. No, by the people who parented them and who should have loved them, left to do as they pleased by an understaffed, inadequately trained and overworked Kansas DFC. It’s hard to know whom to be angry with most: these parents or the state of Kansas who couldn’t give a toss about these children? Because the parents have been or will be prosecuted and convicted for their crimes, but not the Republicans running this state “where for over six years no taxes have been collected, where the government has resorted to selling confiscated sex toys on the internet to pay the bills, and where, under Republican governance, children don’t count anyway?“
Let’s hope Carl Brewer, or another Democrat takes over from Brownback a.s.a.p. and can turn this state around. Grandfather Brewer sadly now has the right motivation to put a broom to the DFC, restructure and refund it and have it do is job properly.
