The victimization of Carrie Buck, Paul Lombardo
Interviewee: Paul Lombardo. Carrie Buck's problems stemmed from her fate as a neglected, poor, uneducated child without defenders. (DNAi Location: Chronicle > Trial of Carrie Buck > Prologue > A girl abandoned by fate)
Carrie's real problems stemmed from being a girl abandoned by fate. She was taken away from her mother at an early age, left with strangers who raised her, left with no real defenders. She was poor, she was uneducated; she was a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, quite literally. She happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, and became a model of legal victims.
