Anonymous Tip: Full Conspiracy

packs-163497_1280

A Review Series of Anonymous Tip, by Michael Farris Pp. 83-84So, let's rehash the conspiracy so far. Donna the social worker falsified her report to state that she found bruises on four-year-old Casey when in fact she did not. Donna spoke with Blackburn, her supervisor, before doing this, and got his go-ahead to falsify the documents and lie in court. Given that Peter found mention of bruises in Rita's report as well, this second social worker, who was also on the scene, must be in on the … [Read more...]

Because his office's phones would automatically switch to an answering service by then (um . . . doesn't he have a car phone?), Gordon decided to go to Sacred Heart hospital, where Gwen … [Read more...]

The Kelly File

This evening I listened to Megyn Kelly's interview with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. I've written a number of posts about the Duggar situation over the past two weeks, including What You Need to Know about the Josh Duggar Police Report, What Did Josh's Counseling Look Like?, and Why Josh Duggar's "Teenage Mistakes" Matter. As longtime critic of the Duggars and as someone who had a similar upbringing, and this entire situation has weighed heavily on me. Today Jim Bob and Michelle spoke publicly ab … [Read more...]

But as someone raised in a similar family and home environment, I want to talk for a moment about the context that is Jana's reality. There's this thing you have to understand about Jana. Those children she cares for? Those may be her siblings, but they are also her children. Think about the way parents … [Read more...]
