An April 1 BH-FP headline on Page 1 said people aren’t reporting child abuse.

We have a judge in Polk County who told a grandmother that children are better off with abusive parents than with grandparents.

She went another time trying to remove her grandchildren from their abusive parents, and the judge told her if she came to court again trying to get the grandchildren the judge would have her thrown in jail.

Is it any wonder that abuse is not being reported?
