This is by far the saddest thing I have ever seen in a documentary. The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez on Netflix is a powerful message regarding the reality of a system that is supposed to protect children. I am sick to my stomach. #GabrielFernandez pic.twitter.com/LIXcMh2mTt

It’s been so hard to watch this @netflix Documentary of #GabrielFernandez I’ve had to stop watching multiple times. How could anyone EVER hurt their babies? How could the people that were called for help fail him?? ? #TheTrialsOfGabrielFernandez ??

Watched the Trials of #GabrielFernandez on Netflix last night. This precious angel was failed by everyone in his life. I hope this case haunts everyone who ignored Gabriel’s cries for help for the rest of their lives. pic.twitter.com/9Uqk9Am6Wm

It’s indeed hard to imagine a mother treating her child this way, but perhaps there are all types of people in the world.
