No One is Listening to the Children

This is the 8th in a series of articles for Daily Kos about the treatment of abused children in the U.S. family court system. “To onlookers it was just a group of children playing in a sunny California park, but to child sexual abuse expert Dr. Claire Reeves it was the highlight of her career.”

“To watch them play and laugh like normal children — it was glorious,” said Reeves, 73, remembering a day when she met nine parents and 15 children for a going-away party before she moved from California to South Carolina in 2000.

Go ahead. I dare you.

This is the ninth in a series of articles for Daily Kos about the treatment of abused children in the U.S. family court system. M.C. Moewe
Nebraska State Sen. Loran Schmit, who headed the investigation into the credit union, turned over the information gathered about the child abuse to the FBI. “I was very disappointed with the way the FBI and law enforcement treated the victims,” Schmit says in the documentary. “They in fact turned them into the offenders, so to speak. And instead of taking the evidence that was delivered to them by the victims and interrogating the persons who the victims identified, they seemed to bear down and try to get the victims to change their story.”

Go ahead. I dare you.
