Individual doctors are prone to make errors of judgment and tell lies[repeatedly in some cases ] to appear consistent ,fail to perceive the obvious signs of grave violence and get sympathy from some colleagues who may turn a blind eye.

Cynics might see all sorts of reasons for this "denialism of the unsavoury truth " but sympathy for overlooking such heinous crimes against another human being would be an unlikely ,if not irrational, response.
