A child’s cry goes unheard

By From page A6 | November 24, 2012

There is no doubt there is something severely wrong somewhere in our judicial system.

We have two court systems that are fully aware of a small child, who when interviewed by detectives that “specialize” in alleged sexual child abuse and conducting these types of interviews, seem to have overlooked a young child’s spoken words. Instead they push the most important words out of the way and focus on false statements from others. After attending several court proceedings and hearing statements, my opinion is something is “severely wrong”

There are several offices with authority with these so-called specialists, but none of them seem to listen to the child. Instead we have a cutthroat judicial system that shows more interest for the accused parties rather than the child. If they would listen to the child, they would clearly know they have the wrong person incarcerated. I am totally shocked that our system fails in this manner while the innocent child’s spoken words go unheard.

If just one person with authority, education or knowledge would listen to this child’s words, they would know. Instead they misconstrue this mess and ignore her needs and continue to accuse the wrong parties.

Where is the justice for this child? Is this not America? Does this child have no rights?

    Welcome to the ''new Amerika''--an Orwellian nightmare where thug cops can lie, distort, falsify, violate rights, be derelict in their employment and act like the unrestrained tyrants that they truly have become. Goes right along with the other nightmare--the welfare state!
