Europe is wondering what is wrong with Great Britain after 18 month old "Baby P" was physically abused by his own mother until he tragically died. Normally I would not write about this kind of stuff. But this tragedy is over a year old, just became public, and is unlike anything I've ever heard of. This case involve such unbelievable mismanagement by social services in Great Britain that one must ask, what the hell is wrong with the country???
Detecting child abuse can't always be easy. Small children may fall down a lot, like my daughter Annika, and have small bruises quite often. But why social services in UK didn't take forceful action in this case will always be a mystery to me and everyone outside UK. Iit shows some real problems with the country. Child abuse is unfortunately not uncommon, documented child abuse of an 18 month old cute boy of this scale without forceful interference is unheard of.
A whole nation, and continent, is grieving and pissed off by the unimaginable abuse that was allowed to continue. But I must still ask, what is wrong with this country? Allowing this to happen is a clear sign things are not working well. Blame it on finances, moral standards, lack of interest, poor doctors, bad parents, shitty social system, or whatever. It's a sign of a country going downhill in a rapid pace.
"Baby P" had a stunning 78 contacts with social services and hospitals during 18 months and still nothing was done. He was used as a punching bag by his mother and two men involved. He finally died after being punched so hard in the face a milk tooth came loose which he swallowed and then suffocated. Without his mother doing a thing. Stay short of GBP as long as you can, you will make a fortune.
Two days before Baby P , doctor saw him. This fantastic doctor failed to notice Baby P had 8 broken ribs, a broken back, and was paralyzed from waist down. Don't you just love the great health care in UK? How difficult would it be to notice injuries of this scale?
On 2 August 2007 police announced they were dropping an investigation into allegations of child abuse they had launched the previous December.
Baby P's mother was elated and told social workers she would go home to hug her son and bake cakes.
The next morning he was dead.
This does not happen in normal countries. Parents may abuse their children but it's discovered about 65 visits before Baby P's death. Worst thing of it all may be that no one has gotten fired. What does it take to get fired in UK? Does doctors and social services not have any moral standards? Obviously not.
