It's so unfair!

There we all go, congratualting our scientists for all the good work they have done with genetic diseases, and how Cystic Fybrosis sufferers have an expected lifespan of 40 years or more now, when they were lucky to make out of their teens a decade ago, then something like this happens!

My heart goes out to his parents.

And to the parents of the 14 year old who has been arrested for his murder - they will have to live the rest of thier lives seeing a murderer every time they look at their son, and asking themselves "why?"

    How sad. I feel so down when I hear things like this. How can one human being be so evil to another. And children at that.

    Horrible things that happen to children are the worst for me. I immediately think of my babies. I'm always worried about things happening to them. I know there are way too many mean, cruel, sick people out there. I wish there was a surefire way of keeping them safe. I'm all for tracking chips under their skin while they're young, just so you'll always be able to find them. *sigh* Hey, I wonder if anyone's invented something like this. I know they have the technology, but don't know if it's been used for this. It'd be cool if you could program it for a particular route and if your kid strays from that route, say walking home from school, an alarm would sound and you could go directly to where they've ventured off their preordained path. Hmmm.

    They did market such a device for a short while but I think it was discontinued after a big human rights case....hmm I'll have to look it up & see if I can find the details.

    this is the story I was thinking of.

    As he said, not a lot of help in this case where the boy was walking 1/4 mile home from school! All it would have done is found his body a few hours earlier:-(

    As far as I know, this one came to nothing too. The problem with both versions is it doesn't PREVENt the problems.

    Yes, it doesn't prevent the problems, but finding the body quicker might relieve the stress of waiting and worrying. Also, there have been cases in this country where young girls have been abducted, they've been found by leaving their cell phones on, also a stolen car or a few of them have been located by the tracking device in the OnStar programs on some models of cars.

    WHY? It's unfortunately a question that I don't think will ever be answered. Life sucks doesn't it? We think we've made all sorts of leaps and bounds as a developing society, then you read about stuff like this and it makes you wonder. At least back when we were cavemen we killed for a reason....to eat
