A father who murdered his adopted baby daughter after months of abusing her was viewed through a “positive lens” by social workers, who praised him as “well-educated and articulate”.
In fact a review into the death of Elsie Scully-Hicks found that social workers showed a “lack of professional curiosity” when assessing Matthew Scully-Hicks. Why was this we wonder?
Scully-Hicks and his husband, Craig, were regarded as “welcoming people with valuable childcare experience”, by social workers who oversaw Elsie’s adoption. The review of Elsie’s case concluded that assessments of the couple during the adoption process were “robust, detailed and comprehensive”.
Although, of course, they made one glaring and for Elsie, fatal error.
Could the fact that Elsie Scully-Hicks’ foster parents were gay have been a factor in why social workers failed to scrutinise Matthew and Craig Scully-Hicks more rigorously?
The following BBC report does exactly the same thing. No doubt through political correctness the BBC fails to highlight the fact that two homosexuals adopting a child is against the fundamental laws of nature. Are we surprised then that little Elsie was murdered by the men who adopted her?
There have been a spate of reports about gay foster parents abusing children in their care, although the media has done its utmost to limit the wider impact of these reports.
Nonetheless, that doesn’t alter the fact that we are looking at something that is fundamentally unnatural. However, being a champion of political correctness the BBC fails to mention this.
It is the proverbial elephant in the room and the media is studiously ignoring it. How many more children must suffer before we can acknowledge what political correctness would have us deny? Ed.
Elsie Scully-Hicks: ‘Chances missed’ to save murdered baby
BBC Online — Aug 2, 2018
Elsie Scully-Hicks died in May 2016 when she was 18 months old.
She was subjected to a catalogue of injuries by killer Matthew Scully-Hicks in the eight months he had care of her.
A child practice review said these were never considered anything other than “childhood accidents”.
Cardiff and Vale’s Regional Safeguarding Children Board agreed that while Elsie’s death could not have been predicted it could potentially have been prevented.
Elsie’s catastrophic injuries included a fractured skull, bruises and a broken leg at the hands of her adopted father at their Cardiff home.
But a report said professionals failed to “see a pattern emerging with injuries”, and that they viewed the adoption as “very successful” with events in the child’s life viewed through a “positive lens”.
