In a righteous world, someone in control would watch this video and then use it as evidence in a courtroom. Instead, because the victim is a child and the perpetrator is her mother and they're participants in a reality show, it is aired as a part of a segment and nothing happens.
It was posted on Huffington Post early yesterday but I just got it in my email a few minutes ago. I haven't seen it talked about anywhere else. That's why I'm posting it here. If this isn't the most abusive kind of torture, I don't know what is. If you think I'm overreacting, please tell me why. (And also tell me how someone could stand there and film this without doing something to intercede? What about the other patrons? Could nobody step forward and help this child? My God.)
