While we have seen the pictures of the mother, all we have right now are verbal descriptions of the burns to this little girl. They were apparently bad enough for someone to be concerned enough to call the authorities, and the authorities were sufficiently concerned to arrest Mom and get the kid to the hospital. The sensationist headlines aside, we don't know what really happened and there is sufficient cause to find out.
The way we resolve issues like this one is in a Court of Law. That is what we created the courts for in the first place, and why the Judiciary is the third leg of our Government. Since we do not have all of the facts in front of us, my counsel is to wait and see what actually happened as this case works its way through the courts.
