me - wtf?

Baby Peter Connolly

The story of Baby Peter Connolly has me all twisted up in knots.

How the HELL can anybody see a child going through horrific torture and not do something?

A doctor saw this kid, with a broken back, 8 broken ribs, cuts and bruises all over him, and didn't do an in depth examination WHY? Because the baby was "cranky and distressed". Over SIXTY visits from child protective services in nine months, and no social worker saw a problem, even though the mother had been arrested at least twice on abuse charges?

And dig this. After Peter was dead and she was jailed on child murder charges, the mother gave birth to another baby. And the cps services there in England wanted to let her KEEP the newborn with her.

Oh Lord. :(
me - wtf?

And the second shoe falls...

Another call from the schools.

This time Ian is the one in trouble, he broke off the tabs that stand a keyboard up. One by accident two days ago, the other on purpose today. To "even things up". After being told to be more careful in the future and make sure it didn't happen again.

So he'll be doing community service hours when school lets back in the week after next.

me - wtf?

Everything is shit

And as such, I figure, why not quit smoking tonight?

Everything else sucks, can't suck any more than it does already, so why the hell not?

Some days I just wish I'd succeeded 5 years ago.
