I was wondering if someone could answer a question. If the mother was there and did nothing to stop the man from hurting this little girl then why is she not charged with anything?

I am also wondering why the mother of this little 4 year old gets off scott free when the children were her sole responsibility. This sends the wrong kind of message to other mothers and fathers who witness this horrible treatment - that they shouldn't worry because they didn't actually touch the child. Also since one of her neighbors saw her abusing the children - shouldn't she be investigated a little further?
