Maybe on the justice level you might be right. But legally, the city had a duty to protect its citizen, the child in this case, and it failed to meet its duty.

On the real, the mother should have died before letting her child come to any harm, but life isn't about justice and symmetry. That is why we have laws.

It was probably the social worker's responsibility.

She could have been physically abused also. She could have been terrified of her boyfriend. It happens.

The only responsibility lies with people in charge of the child. Parents and Social workers. everyone else is legally outside of that nexus.

It is us telling us how to raise our children. The govt is of your doing.

So why not kill all the people, so we don't have this problem.
