Homespun Blogger Symposium XXXI

Sorry for the late post, but yesterday just got away from me. I guess I should be playing far less "Doom 3" these days...but it's just so addictive.

In any event, I was at a loss for a topic this week, but I think I've finally come up with one. Hopefully you'll agree that it's a good one to discuss.

Back in June, you probably heard about a story from Camden, NJ where three young boys were found dead in the trunk of a Toyota after having gone missing. Here's a link to an updated story that should provide you enough background to formulate an opinion on this story. 1010 WINS New York's All News Station...

This story not only discusses the incident, but the legal actions that one of the dead boy's parents intend to follow through with. Here are some questions for you out there in the blogosphere...

1. Who is ultimately responsible for the loss of these three children?

2. Do you believe that the police were at all responsible for not finding the children in time? (It's hinted that on of the parents has decided to sue the City of Camden New Jersey)

3. Do you believe that auto manufacturers are responsible for providing additional safety features that would prevent this type of tragedy in the future? (They've also been named as potential litigants in this case.)

4. Why do you think that if this parent feels so strongly about going after the "wrongdoers" in this case, why doesn't he try to sue the parents of the other children lost in the incident?

As always, please feel free to use as many or as few words to respond.

See you on the high ground.
