Why didn't anything happen to Dave Pelzer's mom?
July 11, 2007 7:48PM
It is quite possible that "child abuse" laws in the 70's weren't
very well addressed. Not that it is right that she got away with
torture, degradation, neglect, abuse, etc.... The father should
have been arrested just as much as The Mother. How can anyone do
these things to another human? How can someone allow it to happen?
It is too obvious that The Family was living in denial of what
David was suffering.
