It is my believe that child abuses are inflicted by mentally ill perpetrators ( men or women) regardless of race, age and social status. When adults use they power over children to subjugate, to control, to take on other role but of a protector, those adults have cross a threshold of conscience right and wrong thus to mental illness. Otherwise how can one justify inhuman tortures inflected to harmless infants or children.
The other big problem in our society is the bureaucracy surrounding the agencies responsible to protected the children. Overloaded by to many cases, looking to protected the parents right and the child's right, they sometime forget they are dealing and representing innocent and helpless children who lie on them for their safety. The different agencies had have ample warning for Lisa Steinberg. The tenants of the Steinberg's building and their neighbors were very outspoken. "We reported it to all the proper agencies" one said. A neighbor said to have called child abuse hot lines and responding investigator couldn't find sufficient evidence, William Grinker then New York's commissioner of human resource said that the reports of child abuses at the Steinberg household were mishandled. Mishandled doesn't make me feel better, knowing that this child could have been saved from a house of horror. I believe the investigation been so mismanaged had to do with Mr. Steinberg been a lawyer. Blue Ribbon Awareness is to remind us of all the Lisa's and Alissa's (1995), and to not hesitate to intervene when abuse is suspected.
