Petition Tag - bruising
My 2 year old son went with his father for his very first overnight visit, and it's been a nightmare ever since. He came home with severe handprint shaped bruises over the entire area of his buttocks. Child Protective Services says the father told them he 'beat his butt for peeing in his underwear'. Knowing all this they said the injuries WEREN'T SERIOUS! They called it inappropriate discipline and said that the case was 'unfounded'. Because of that ruling I could NOT get a judge to see any of the video taped evidence that I have regarding the father's violent behavior or how my son reactes to his father when he comes to get him. The judge ruled that his father should get him back and that I was being unreasonable for having pursued this when Child Protective Services termed it 'unfounded'. Unfounded means that there could have been abuse but the injuries weren't severe enough for them to do anything about. Have you ever heard anything so ridiculous? My son was black and blue for over a week. He won't wear underwear now. He is afraid of his father. What about this is not serious? This is the most recent in a series of incidents. It's time our 'Protective Services' protected our children. Bruising such as my 2 year old suffered is ABUSE!!!!!
