There is an agency in America that has a very bizarre habit. It proclaims guilt before innocence, and seizes the most precious of things from people. Ironically, if you admit guilt they will return said precious items. Refuse to admit guilt (because of innocence) and you may never see the return of your precious.
This agency goes by many names, but essentially it’s Child Protection Services. The irony is if you admit abuse they will usually return your children and enroll you in one of their programs. This is what they want. They want admission and enrollment, because it validates the agency.
The sad irony is many children have been taken from good homes on “suspicions”, and then placed in horrible environments that lead to their death.
In this situation, the parents could not handle the loss of their child and the weight of accusations, threat of arrest, destruction of career, pushed the father to take his and his wife’s life. [As for those anti-gunners who would point to this as another example of why only the military and police should have guns. According to the article the O’Shells were both respected police officers.]
There is a reason that we have “innocent until proven guilty” as a foundation of our legal system.
The sad irony is that when children and teens that are often abused try to report it to said agencies, they’re often returned to their abusive guardians. This is not to say that there isn’t a place for protecting children. But these agencies are Nazi-esque in how quickly they jump to conclusions and charges. And seizing peoples children when parents are innocent crosses the line of tolerance.
So to all those who think Zimmerman should be locked away or executed before he’s been tried and convicted. Realize that view destroys our nation and will lead to far worse abuses.
