Well, I wasn’t being smug.And, as far as ignorance, look into court cases involving discovered abuse unreported by the first mandatory reporter and tell me the courts do not define abuse.
I’m sorry you are so upset and it seems to be a personal issue with you. I am well aware of cases where overzealous people in all lines of work have mucked up peoples lives. I am also aware that, as men, we are born(to borrow a phrase from “Garp’s” mother) “Sexual Suspects”. None of that changes the fact that I am mandated by federal law to report suspected abuse or I can face charges. Morally, I would do it anyway. You wouldn’t?
I am NOT overzealous,as I stated previously,I have had to report someone once and it was for Elder abuse, not child abuse. And even though you have wished me ill I hope, if you are ever in a position of immobility, having lost everything in your life to time, someone watches out for you. I never meant to offend you, but, I’m not wrong.
The child was asked if shd had ever been touched... the child responded "no." There is no evidence or reason to believe the child was abused. If the nurse still had evidence to believe otherwise then the nurse should have called CPS or the police. Under the current circumstances, the nurse should have called the parents and recommended she be taken to a DOCTOR and given an exam.
Drumming up unsubstantiated charges of child abuse, or worse violating a 6 year old girl is uncalled for.... If it was my child this happened to, a lawsuit would be the least of the nurse's trouble.
But, homeschooling negates this problem before it starts.
And FL, the LEGISLATURE writes the laws.... the courts decide the case within the meetsand bounds of those laws. But, it is still the LEGISLATURE that wrote law (defines if you will).
I think that the Scotsman thought you were defending a school nurse examining a 6 year old without parental consent, or if the nurse felt it was warranted without contacting the authorities... I hope this isn't your position.
“And even though you have wished me ill I hope,...”
Wished you ill?
But, but, but I’m only wishing that you get to enjoy a system that you defend, think highly of, and support. How’s that wishing you ill?
Oh, typical statist thinking. Only the peasants have to put up with $hitty govt programs. That isn’t for the elite, like you.
