DA won't charge woman accused of beating children
am I the only one outraged by this? What else could have caused the injuries to these children? 35 years old with 11 children?!? I wonder if they are all biological. Article is very brief.

So, they do have to return to this woman who beat them?
Any further investigation?? I know that no-one has the answers at the moment...just thinking out loud....Above is my opinion only

I just wonder if she actually beat them. I know that, at any given time, if one were to look at my children's arms or legs, they are FULL of bruises... they're BOYS~ Just the other night, I was giving them a bath, and the oldest had a huge bruise on his bottom... he had been out ice skating the day before and fell on the ice. But someone could easily misinterpret it... It's kinda scary.

This one already has a thread somewhere. She has had children taken from her before and is pregnant with her 15th according to original articles. Yes, I'm outraged.

What does this mean?
the facts ''do not point to what was first being alleged.''
Or is he saying these are mischievous kids and they needed to beaten?
I don't get it.Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........
Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

I don't get it either. I hope several people have looked at this case. It's hard to imagine this can be dismissed this easily.
MsSheila - sad about your child falling on ice ;D but I don't think any professional would confuse a huge bruise on the butt for a child abuse mark. Docs looks for "bruises all on a plane" that would indicate a fall. For example, skinned palms of hands, a skinned hip, and skinned knee all on the same side indicates a typical fall. One big knot on a head indicates a fall. Round bruises on the outside of legs and arms look like the child bumped into something.
Its bruises in various stages of healing, or bruises on many surfaces of the body NOT on a "plane" or bruising accompanied by finger bruises on the inside of arms or thighs. Whip like marks, several burns at once. So interesting, (but sad) that science of looking for abuse. I took a very short training in some of the stuff to spot before doing volunteer home visits, and it was really interesting.
