I suggest you escalate the complaint further up the chain of command. Start with a supervisor at Child Protective Services. State to them that if they choose to ignore the report(s) as a result of your daughter's position or status within the industry that you will take it further up the ladder. Go to your state representative and detail what has happened so far, including what the police officer told you about the repercussions of interfering with a parent's discipline and that your granddaughter was old enough to walk home at 10 pm. Detail everything. If you don't get results, then consider going to the media with what you know and what you suspect. I wish you and your granddaughter all the best. She certainly has a strong advocate in you. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

If you can document and substantiate your claims of child abuse/neglect of your grandaughter by your daughter, and she holds some form of health care provider certification, she is in an ethics violation situation. I don't care wether she is an illiterate or a PHD, she cannot "abandon" a nine year old child on the streets at 10:00 pm at night to fend for herself.

As far the police officer who was the first responder, he needs to have his law enforcement certification pulled immediately before he gets some child killed. (It's a good bet your daughter pulled her government rank job when they called the police- another reason she should face ethics charges).

Document it, file ethics complaints against their certifications, to heck with the fallout. Your granddaughter is the prime point of importance now.

video taped?
by: My Two Cents

I'm not really following the "got her in a compromising position" part of the video tape. But whatever was videoed, it's evidence, too, right? Does it still exist? Or can child welfare interview the family friend who saw it? If you're talking about child porn then making, producing, and showing it was all a criminal act and should result in penalties to the child's parents.

Everything else said is sound and I hope it helps you to help granddaughter. She deserves to be treated respect, dignity, and love!

Be well.

My Two Cents.
