Westfield Woman, Boy Injured Trying To Escape Abusive Man

with one comment

Where was this injured boy’s mom?  Was she wiped out of his life by the Family Courts of Indiana, given to an abusive man?  That’s Standard Operating Procedure here.  May this stepmom and son recover soon and never return to this abuser…

  1. story goes that the mother cracked out and abandoned the boy with Chuck. I feel for the kid…he doesn’t have much hope no matter which parent he ends up with. And is Indiana’s Foster system any better? Unlikely. A lot of low life’s will foster a child just to get that check from the state each month…
