As are most people, we have been following the Melissa Diegel case. Melissa Diegel, for the past five years, was known for uploading livestream videos regarding her CPS case, a case she apparantly lost years ago. Recently, Diegel was charged with six accounts of felony child abuse and two accounts of felony domestic violence. As expected, it has created a rift in the already broken CPS movement.
In a recent livestream, Melissa is seen being arrested by the US Marshals. While it isn’t unheard of for a CPS “victim” to be arrested, it is almost never seen for the arresting agency be the US Marshals.
Since the time of her arrest, a lot of information has come to light, including a rather disturbing audio recording. The recording can be heard here. The video, taken only two months after brain surgery, is of Melissa’s child screaming in pain. The video in itself had us wondering why she chose to record this rather than go to the hospital? A grim answer we may never truly know, but speculate.
There are some very concerning red flags within this case. Red flags that other people had tried to question Diegel on in the past, their reply came in the form of a block. Currently, Melissa is in a Florida jail, awaiting to be moved to Arizona. A woman who played on the vulnerabilities of fellow victim advocates now sits as a testament on why personal emotions should always be seperated.
Many of the advocates within the CPS arena are victims themselves. The concept that anybody could be such a monster, is simply unfathomable. Sadly people, here is your monster. While many advocates, we hear, are smacking themselves over this, they shouldn’t. Take it as a lesson to improving your style and advocacy. Remember, not e erybody you meet is innocent.
