The latest in a long line of "X that doesn't deserve its own thread" threads. This thread is for news stories that catch your attention and you think are interesting enough to share, but aren't likely to generate a large amount of discussion. With that in mind, best to avoid: - Political content like elections - Controversial issues which DLP's membership is likely to disagree upon - Big stories that will generate a lot of continuing discussion (e.g. Syria, Ukraine) I'll start us off: Story. The big headline grabber here is that the police ignored what was happening so deliberately. While reading the story I recalled the numerous times HP fans have talked about how unrealistic it is that the Dursley's negligence of Harry was ignored by authorities. There are so many fics where wizards (normally Dumbledore) were ultimately responsible for making this happen, and even more fics where Muggle social services "come to the rescue" and you have endless bashing of the wizarding world's child care. Well, this news story really debunks all of that. It's completely realistic.
