When her father molested little Lexi in Tustin,
I remained silent; Did not live in Tustin; did not know any "Lexies"
When CPS took Lexi away from her mother
I remained silent; Did not live in Tustin; never met the mother.
When CPS gave custody of Lexi back to her abuser father
I did not speak out; Lived in Tustin; trusted the system; must have been a mistake
When the Judge and CPS closed their eyes to the truth
I remained silent; Lived in Tustin; trusted the system; was sure the truth was known
