Psychics Take Away a Daughter From Her Mother

Simple unbelievable.

"The frightened mother rushed back to the campus and was stunned by what she heard - the principal, vice-principal and her daughter's teacher were all waiting for her in the office, telling her they'd received allegations that Victoria had been the victim of sexual abuse - and that the CAS had been notified.

How did they come by such startling knowledge? Leduc was incredulous as they poured out their story.

"The teacher looked and me and said: 'We have to tell you something. The educational assistant who works with Victoria went to see a psychic last night, and the psychic asked the educational assistant at that particular time if she works with a little girl by the name of "V." And she said 'yes, I do.' And she said, 'well, you need to know that that child is being sexually abused by a man between the ages of 23 and 26.'"

The mother was reported to Children's Aid, based on the allegations of a psychic.

There's nothing funny about child abuse, especially with children with disabilities such as autism, but what's the difference between a psychic saying that this little girl was abused and someone else just making a wild guess?

Answer: nothing.

To back up the claim, the school officials should have also consulted a shaman, a witch doctor and turned over some tarot cards. The psychic should be harshly punished - I would suggest jail time, but instead he/she should be forced to 'demonstrate' his/her 'abilities' in a controlled setting, which is recorded and posted on Youtube.

There are two points about psychics:

1) If psychic power is true, then everything we know is wrong. What energy source are they using? How do you read someone's mind? Using what medium? How can you 'see' events that haven't happened yet?

2) If it is true, then where were the psychics on 9/10/01? For every planned murder, every psychic would be culpable, if not legally than morally. If someone tells me that they are going to murder their boss, and I think there's a good chance that they will, and then they do, then I'm in a lot of legal trouble, let alone morally wrong. What would make psychics any different?

This girl was returned to her mother and the mother pulled the little girl from the class. If I were a school board official, I'd be preparing the cheque, as this mother has a lawsuit. I'd also fire all the officials involved, and force them to go back to school to learn something about science.
