There is never a justification for child abuse of any form. The murder of Gabriel Fernandez was done coldly and preplanned in my opinion. He was exposed to repeated maltreatment with an end aim of death. The defendant claims it was out of anger but this has been done several times and this child has been tortured and stressed mentally. I always tell my friend, that family doesn't always mean connected by blood and this case has proven it, as Gabriel Fernandez, a child, helpless and with the heart of a child couldn't do anything but go through such ill-treatment from a man 10 times bigger than him who happens to be his mother's boyfriend.
This is a documentary on Netflix that also exposed a failed system in America after everyone who was supposed to look into Gabriel's case failed him. He was killed by his mother's boyfriend. This case is very sensitive and complicated as many people are being held responsible in connection to neglect for the death of Gabriel Fernandez. Gabriel was isolated from playing with his siblings and beaten regularly.
Gabriel is an eight-year-old boy from Palmdale, California. Watching this documentary broke my heart because I could feel that Gabriel had so many unanswered questions such as
Does anybody love me?
Does my mum love me?
Where is my uncle?
Where is my teacher?
Why is this guy that calls himself my mother's boyfriend doing this to me?.
Sadly he got no answers before he left this cold world to his eternal resting place.
