Definition of Family Abuse Questioned
What defines a proper relationship between parents and children has been a subject of intense debate since a father of a five-year-old girl was filmed by passengers on a high-speed train, who believed the man was molesting his daughter. He was shown lifting up her clothing and fondling her, despite the child's protestations. When local police asserted they were father and daughter and declined to investigate further, many netizens were outraged, questioning whether the police believed that abuse could not take place between parents and children. Experts warned that such a judgment will prevent children from being protected from sexual abuse.
