How could something like this even happen?

Asked by Dutchess_III (42474points) May 15th, 2015

The main story is a woman finding her daughter after 8 years, but toward the bottom there is a side story of a judge ordering another girl, who happens to have the same first name as the missing daughter, to go live with the woman. It wasn’t even her daughter! She has since been reunited with her real family in Mexico. How could that even happen?

The failings of the justice system accelerate markedly as you move downward economically. Those without resources are doomed to inevitable miscarriages and run the additional hazard of being stranded in places where “justice” is an iffy proposition to begin with.

Absolutely Dickensian. The law is an ass and people don’t care enough.
