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. :(
