Caregivers should be held to high standards

Published 8:47 am Thursday, December 11, 2008

Likely “suspended jail sentences” for Broitzman and Larson? Just what message is being sent to other employees or potential employees of care centers? What about the trusting people who gave their loved ones to this care center’s care? Why is this being treated differently than what it really is? Abuse: Sexual, mental and emotional.

How do we punish the offender who does alleged things like this to children? Aren’t these victims comparable to children? Shouldn’t these caregivers be held to the same high standards as the ones who care for our young children? Such a minimal sentence is wrong, and the girls who knew about these atrocities along with the ones who carried them out should all be punished.
