condoning the violence

Even if a kid is an asshole, it doesn't make witnessing his mamma knock him upside the head any less shitty.

But hey, the other kid whose mamma beats him? Well, we don't want to refer him to child services because "there's a backlog" and it won't do any good. So if we won't do anything but watch it happen and keep punishing the kid...well, I'm noticing that many of the people I work with have no problem with kids getting the crap kicked out of them by their parents. That's good for 'em, right? There's no such thing as a cycle of violence, right?

Great. Just fucking great.
