The Tulsa World reports, “Police say another 5-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl also lived in the home, but they do not believe those children were abused.”
Seriously!!! The other kids were not traumatized as well?
In all likelihood the two kids were aware of or witnessed the human oppression and emotional/physical maltreatment of the five-year-old victim.
Science tells us young children witnessing this type of violence are often traumatized for years, even decades.
Much like child abuse victim and Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar who revealed the ongoing emotional trauma he experiences after witnessing a person shot to death in front of his home over a drug deal when he was a five-year-old child.
As much as I believe in our right to peacefully pursue our unique of vision for L, L, (Love) and Happiness, I also believe there will always be a population of disturbed people committing horrific acts that should result with their rights being severely limited or forfeited.
In short, if convicted Society should order these women be sterilized to prevent further oppression and destruction of human life.
I understand people can change, I’ve witnessed people get their act together, becoming more peaceful responsible citizens.
However, in my mind grievously harming a child just once is good enough reason to remove the offender’s right to create new life.
Robert K. Ross, MD, President and CEO of The California Endowment, gives a compelling overview of the role that exposure to childhood trauma plays in the lives of troubled and chronically ill Americans.
