First off, I can't even comprehend the evil that the mother and others did to this little girl. I can't even try to understand it.But some things I'm already noticing about the media treatment of the case:-Many women I've spoken with about it have stated (umprompted) that they believe the reason the mother did this was to get back at the father and deny him his daughter.-This angle was brought up on the Today show momentarily by some commentator, but the Today show talking head immediately dismissed it and was adamantly against entertaining it as a possible motive.-The media seems to be taking advantage of this case now as an opportunity to push more human trafficking and sex slavery mythology. Keep an eye out for this.
The media keeps saying that "desperate mothers will do desperate things". No, amoral people will do sick things. Just because they are a mother does not change that.
