Is there any defense for what Rodriguez did to that little girl?
Is there really any defense for the mother?
Yes, I am being facetious. I realize that in the name of justice, a trial must happen, and I see that the mother has already retained a lawyer who is already saying that she had no idea of the abuse going on, yada yada yada.
However, the left side of my brain is just telling me that I'd like to subject the father and the mother to just ONE DAY of the pain they gave this little girl her whole lifetime.
This gives me a pain in my heart.
All the signals missed. Tragic.
And the knowledge that there are dozens more of these kids in the system that are in the same horror house right now, and chances are a few more of them will actually be killed rather than saved.
