PumaLover posted a topic in Wide World of SnarkI might dox myself a little bit but this happened last night in the city that I'm from. Fresno, California is a large city in Central California and there are a lot of pedestrian/train accidents yearly. This little girl was killed last night after her mother prompted her to crawl under the train to get to the bus stop so they wouldn't miss their bus. The train suddenly started to go and it killed her. The mother had reportedly done this multiple times before. There are trains that run through neighborhoods and across major streets and near bus stops in Fresno. Sadly this is not a rare case around here. When my adopted daughter first came to live with us, a lot of her stories started out, "and we were playing on the train tracks." Sadly it's just an everyday thing for a lot of underprivileged children who live in poorer areas. https://abc30.com/nothing-could-prepare-me-for-what-ive-seen-witness-recalls-seeing-8-year-old-get-hit-by-train/4919480/
I know this site has been brought up in threads of various fundie families (Rembis, Naugler, etc), but I'd like a space to talk about the site itself and the lesser-known cases it features. Brief intro for those unfamiliar: Medical Kidnap is a website purporting to share stories of families who have been "torn apart" when their children were "kidnapped" for medical reasons. Typically it's stuff like refusing to vaccinate, not taking perfectly healthy children to the doctor, living off-grid, faith healing, etc. The stories often follow a specific format - the children are 100% happy, healthy, and loved, a neighbor or medical professional reports them to CPS for some unknown reason, CPS comes and takes their kids away immediately without any proof of the allegations, kids are split up into various foster homes and all are immediately abused, and the parents do every single thing asked of them but CPS keeps changing the requirements/timelines/rules so they can never get everything done and pursues TPR so they can get the boatloads of cash the government gives them for putting kids up for adoption. Aaaaaaand DISCUSS!
