Believe parents now?

Regarding the article, “Newport man charged with raping children” (BDN, July 3-4).

Imagine the reaction of parents whose children have been removed from their homes by the state. These are some of the same parents who participated in the Walk for DHS Accountability, and the March for the Mothers of the Disappeared.

These are the parents who carried picket signs in front of DHS saying that DHS was hurting their children not helping them.

Now do you believe them?
