statistics. who cares when one death of a child is too many. like when a court system in joco lets a mental mother spend a nite with an innocent child. do the judges not read reports on these people?i suppose that one really should not be shocked. after all, there is a group of bible beaters down there who get by with using religion to let children die. as i recall a judge let two idiots do the same thing as commit murder on a child. they did get a slap on the wrist. they did not believe in a lot of medical practices, but they did get glasses for themselves. that made me sick that the judge would let murderers go because of religion. hats off to joco indiana for having judges who encourage by stupidity.

Indiana is not a kid friendly state. We are filling our cemeteries, prisons and mental institutions with state ignored abused and neglected children. DCS is a disgusting joke. They lie as quickly and easily as other people take a breath. No one can depend on them when a child's life or health is at risk. Neither can we depend on the governor, attorney general or any state senator or representative. We have to be more involved with who is being voted in. Don't vote party, vote the person and what they represent and claim (at least)that they plan to do, then make them stick to it with constant feedback.
