DHS Takes Child from Mom in SEPTA Video | News | Philadelphia Magazine

I'm glad that the child is now safe. The video was absolutly heartbreaking. After watching it I cried and pleaded to God praying that the child can finally be safe. The video has gotten alot of controversy as to why the person didn't help the child and videoed instead... but i read on the comments that he alerted the driver (who did nothing) and also called police. He videoed for proof. Thanks to him getting this on video, the girl is now safe.

It's just sad to think about all of the other children who have to witness this daily

the child is in the hands of the DHS so everything is not well and good. perhaps the agency has reformed but it has had plenty of widespread scandals where people are just filling out paperwork. no matter what happens from here the child is most likely going to have a tough go of it either through "the system." best case scenario is the mom gets help and is able to manage her addiction and raise her child.

Heartbreaking? Psh... that little girl's problems are minuscule compared to what's happening to kids in third world countries every day.

i applaud you, airwave, for realizing that. i always think "well, i dont live in syria" those moments when i want to yell and beat the hell out of someone.

but i shudder to think of this little girl's future. what kind of scum men is that redhead bringing into her home? what kind of danger will this girl be susceptible to as this disease or addiction takes hold of everything in their lives. im glad the social workers got that little girl.

Of all the things going on in that video, you're biggest concern in that the daughter may be exposed to "scum men"? That comment says so much about you. I bet you believe there is a "war on women" too, right? Keep fighting the good fight against those scum men that infest society.

I'm a man, and I believe that many "men" these days haven't earned the title. Real men don't need drugs to enjoy themselves. Real men have at least one useful skill other than ****ing. Real men know how to take "no" for an answer. Real men have proper impulse control. Any male who lacks even one of those three qualities is nothing but an overgrown little boy. Oftentimes you'll find them in low-income areas as a result of the decisions they make. (Occasionally they'll be diagnosed with "affluenza," though.)

Be all that as it may, I believe that women have more power in a relationship than they realize. Men would shape up in a hurry if women told them "no" a little more often. Negative punishment works, and so does positive reinforcement.
