Read this story from this morning's online Kalamazoo Gazette about the death of 16-year-old Calista Springer of Centreville and then tell me that Michigan can protect its abused and neglected children.
Local authorities, according to the paper's investigation knew about the girl's situation and still didn't deal with it. Why wasn't action taken when the girl's plight was apparently widely-known?
It would be too easy to say this is an isolated case, but it's not.
Her parents are on trial for felony murder, torture and first degree child abuse. Perhaps those charged with protecting our state's at-risk kids need to be held accountable too.
