well im pretty upset... i dont understand how a judge can deny something that is for a childs saftey...

A little background info: on our last T-ball game of the season Kobes Birth mom ( for those who dont know we have 50?50 custody, but she has only started wanting visitations since the start of last year) his Birth mom drug him on the ground in the gravel by his arm from the outfield to third base while he was crying and people were telling her to stop and she only said he wasnt listening.. the whole stand full of people saw her do it, i didnt because i was in the game coaching the team as he was sitting out with her.

There were 2 family members in the stand who are court mandated to file a CPS report asap if they wittness child abuse. So they were obviously conflicted by it because they knew it would cause ALOT of drama with her, but knew they had to do something, so we went to the court house this morning to see if we could get temp custody ( since he went to his moms today for the weekend)  and the protection order until a court date.

We were at the court house for 6 hours before they even reviewed the case, and then they took 15 mins to decide it wasnt an emergency, so we had to take kobe to his moms, and wait till the court date next monday for them to basically hear her side of the story.
But WHY let him go back to his moms after seeing that he was abused??!! all they told us is if something happens again to call the police and they can issue a protection order or we could try again at that time.. WTF i have to let that happen to my child AGAIN before they will do anything??
BS!! I can honestly say i know tamra isnt the best mom, but i never thought she would really HURT him.
Dh is stressing thinking what if the courts some how turn it and then we lose more custody of him... but i dont see how that can happen, she is gonna have to explain why she did that, and i would think have to do something about it. im afraid that she did this in public and plenty of people could see, she didnt think it was wrong then whats gonna stop her from doing something worse in private when shes got him alone?
ugh, im sick over it...

Awee I'm so sorry you're going through this!! The court system seriously ***** sometimes!!! If a court mandated reporter(s) said something, you'd think it would be enough, especially family!! I hope the judge makes the right decision next time!! :(
