I'm so upset, I can't believe these things happen.
(Please don't answer if you do not know about "Baby P", it's a very sensitive subject, if you are wondering about the story, this is a link -- http://pysih.com/2008/11/17/barkeonnolly/ )
My question is, how do social workers miss that kind of thing happening right under their noses? How could they over look such horror inflicted on a little baby?

I never heard of that story and I opened your link and read it. I wish I didn't. That is about the most heart breaking thing I have read in awhile. I think they should be held accountable in his death as well. They missed it because they didn't care and do their job properly. It disgust me that they did nothing to help that boy. At least he isn't suffering anymore.

I think the mom, both men and all the workers should be punished severely.

There are so many cases like the Baby P one, it's really sad, but it happens. I will say that social workers can be over-worked and have a heavy case load, but when I looked this case up on wikipedia it said that the child was taken away from the mother twice before he died. Now I really have to wonder how in the hell people could be so negligent to let a woman have her child back twice when she obviously wasn't going to stop abusing him.

There's a new post, with Baby P's Mom asking forgiveness for the "inadequate parenting skills that prevented her from realizing her child was being tortured". I'm sorry, but if my kid broke one rib I would know, let alone 8. She had to have known and now she's just trying to keep herself out of trouble. As far as the social services goes, I think that was a MAJOR error on their part. I'm not sure about that doctor either. How do you miss broken ribs, broken back, missing fingertips/toes? I think some people were just looking the other way to not have to deal with it IMO.
