Child Died in Vain

I read today about a young girl found buried in her father's backyard in Ceres. Probably murdered by dad. The dad had a private lawyer, the mother had a court-appointed lawyer. The dad had been arrested for domestic violence, bank fraud and drunk driving. The mother was depressed. The dad got custody. In a country where the law made sense, an arrest for domestic violence should mean that you don't get custody of your children. How many mothers in Pleasanton are depressed or on anti-depressants? A lot. In a country where the law makes sense, a parent should not be denied custody of their child due to depression unless they are incapacitated. The dead child's court-appointed lawyer wrote a report to the judge that the father was abusing the children and not sending them to school. Nothing happened and now the girl is dead. It's really disgusting to read articles about this, because the tone is "What is a judge to do these days? It's really tough on them, the decisions they have to make are difficult." Really? This man was clearly unfit to be a father, he was OBVIOUSLY abusive, he was a drunk, a wife-beater and a felon. This child died in vain. You just have to read the articles about her death to know that, because the attitude is "What are you gonna do? it's just too bad."
We shouldn't even have judges, many are morons. There should be software. You punch in "drunk-driving, domestic violence, bank fraud" and you get back "no custody". It should be that simple. This girl would be alive if it were.
