Matriarchal Control and Oppression
Probably never. But this case in Carnation is so extreme, and there have been so many others like it, that one wonders how authorities can so willingly fail to see a pattern. The pattern is that CPS has an agenda that makes it blind to abuse by women. As a subsidiary of DSHS, it's primary focus is on earning federal matching grants through enforcing child support on fathers. This, of course, necessitates removing fathers from the lives of children.
Unfortunately, this Carnation case demonstrates that even having a father around doesn't ensure the safety of a child that becomes the focal point of a woman's wrath. Clearly, the father of this girl is not without fault. But isn't it interesting that, so far, he seems to be receiving the same charges as the perpetrator of the brutal and sadistic torture of this child?
