Listen to what the parents told their abused daughter to deal with it. “Life’s not fair?” No. The state is not fair. Professional bureaucrats are sociopaths. Politicians are insane and dangerous. Those are the lessons of this story.
But nooooo; this is all just a great exception. Normally, the state and federal employees who we want to invade other countries, build our cars, control our economy, and play doctor with us are all brilliant, eternally beneficient angels, with only a few weird exceptions.
Did the parents even consider teaching their daughter another lesson by pulling her out of that prison? (I have no idea what their circumstances are which is why I’m only asking if they considered it)
