There HAS to be SOME kind of evidence or eye-witness account. Your just saying it happened is not enough. People are innocent until proven guilty in this country, and rightfully so. BUT- if you know someone is abusing their child, you should at least report it so an investigation can be done. If there really is abuse going on, there will be SOME kind of evidence. The children can be questioned and witnesses can be interviewed, if nothing else. But until someone is actually formerly charged (meaning some kind of evidence is present), the children stay at home.
