SUBJECT:  CHILD ABUSE, SOME (NOT ALL) POLICE DEPARTMENTS, AND SOME SCHOOLS

THIS NEXT EDITORIAL WAS INSPIRED BY A GUEST SPEAKER AT SCHOOL (IN THE HEALTH CLASS THAT I'M IN).

MANY OF YOU MAY HAVE HEARD ABOUT CORRUPTION IN POLICE DEPARTMENTS.  WELL, HERE'S ONE THING THAT MAY SHOCK YOU.  WHEN IT COMES TO CHILD ABUSE, SOME POLICE DEPARTMENTS WON'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT CHILD ABUSE.  THERE HAVE BEEN REPORTS OF CHILD ABUSE WHERE THE POLICE JUST IGNORE THE CALL FOR HELP.

THE GUEST SPEAKER THAT I'M REFERRING TO WAS HANDCUFFED TO A TABLE AND BEATEN.  SHE TRIED TO FIGHT BACK.  THE POLICE
ARRESTED THE VICTIM (THE GUEST SPEAKER) EVEN THOUGH SHE TRIED TO FIGHT BACK.  AND WORST OF ALL, THE POLICE TOLD THE VICTIM THAT ALL PARENTS SHOULD HAVE A SET OF HANDCUFFS TO RESTRAIN A CHILD (THAT'S STILL NO EXCUSE FOR HANDCUFFING A CHILD).

THERE HAVE BEEN SOME PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN ABUSED AND TRIED TO TELL SCHOOL COUNSELORS.  BUT HERE'S ANOTHER HORRIBLE FACT:  SOME OF THE SCHOOL COUNSELORS
REFUSED TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT AND RULED IT AS AN UNRULY CHILD, EVEN THOUGH THERE WERE BRUISES, CUTS, ETC. ON THE VICTIM!

MY OPINION:

THE GOOD PEOPLE (ONES THAT DON'T ABUSE CHILDREN) AND THE GOOD POLICE OFFICERS AND SCHOOL COUNSELORS (WHO WILL HELP ABUSED CHILDREN) NEED TO KEEP AN EYE ON THEIR POLICE DEPARTMENT(S) AND MAKE SURE THAT THEY WILL HELP ABUSED CHILDREN.

NOTE (ALSO PART OF MY OPINION):  IN MY OPINION,  THE POLICE ARE DOING A GREAT JOB FIGHTING TERRORISM, BUT IS CARING ABOUT CHILDREN IS WHAT'S THE PROBLEM WITH SOME (NOT ALL) POLICE DEPARTMENTS.

FOR PEOPLE WHO KNOW THAT CHILDREN ARE BEING ABUSED AND ARE WILLING TO TRY TO HELP THE CHILD:

TRY TO CALL YOUR LOCAL POLICE DEPARTMENT (IF THEY WILL HELP CHILDREN AND AREN'T LIKE THE BAD ONES I STATED ABOVE THAT WON'T HELP ABUSED CHILDREN) AND/OR DEPARTMENT OF FAMILY AND CHILREN SERVICES (SAME CONDITION AS YOUR LOCAL POLICE DEPARTMENT).  AFTER THEY CHECK ON THE SITUATION AND TAKE ANY ACTION, TRY TO CHECK UP ON THE CHILD OR CHILDREN WHO MIGHT HAVE BEEN ABUSED AND SEE HOW THEY ARE DOING.  ASK THAT CHILD (CHILDREN) HOW WERE THEY TREATED, ETC.
