Incomprehensible governance...

this was supposed to be the post where I completely condemned the Commonwealth of Virginia. Just so as to not leave you all hanging I will make it short and concise. My ex-girlfriend/fiancée (whom I will call Ms. L) has three beautiful and amazing children. Those three children have a prick of a father. He has repeatedly been in trouble for abuse and Child Protective Services (CPS) has been involved in addition to the police and court system. Yet the guy continues to have his partial custody rights. You read it right...he has the children every weekend; with exception of the second weekend of the month. How is this? It makes ZERO sense to me. Anyway...last weekend it evidentially happened again. Whereas I have not seen the police report; this is what I heard. Their father got angry , lifted one of this six year old boys up by the throat, pushed him back into the wall (breaking the drywall)...while doing so he hot the curtains and the curtain rod fell to the ground. He then pucked up the curtain rod and began hitting his son with it. Now that is what I heard...these are the facts I know of. The police went and arrested him, he spent time in jail before being bailed out by his attorney, he also then tried to go pull the children (twin boys and a daughter) out of school. Fortunately Ms. L has a great rapport with the office manager at their school and she called Ms. L to notify her of this. Ms. L then hastily left work and went to sign the children out. Anyway...the rest of this banter is irrelevant. My question is this...
Will the stupid state of Virginia finally do something about all of this? How is it that a government can allow this sort of thing to go on. Ms. L has even tried to get the children out of the weekends with him for years but the courts would say that he had rights???!!! I can not say much more...I am outraged and it makes me wonder how many other similar cases are going on in the great Commonwealth of Virginia. I can tell you this...if that were to occur in California, Oklahoma, or Texas (the only three states I have lived in for an extended amount of time) he would have zero rights when it came to the children. Well, I have to stop here I need to calm myself back down.
