People here seem to have a major problem with people asking questions and getting the facts straight before making a comment. DENY IGNORANCE. Posting
blindly on emotion rather then fact is wrong. And telling me that I 'support the murder of children' because I asked questions before making a comment
... that's absurd. Learn to get the facts before making emotional comments. It's better for everyone.
Well, by stating the young children were older than they were, does actually minimise the attrocity, at least from an emotive point of view.
It's the difference in emotive terms, between a drunk driver running down and killing a 10 or 11 year old child, and the same driver running down a 40
year old man. Both are bad, both are dead, but the death of the child who has barely begun his life impacts us more than the 40 year old. This is a
basic Human fact of life...we value our children.
Which scenario would emotionally impact society more..a fire sweeping through a nursery full of 3 - 5 year olds and burning them to death, or the same
fire sweeping through and killing the same numbers of geriatrics and octogenarians?
We are human. Emotion is as big, if not a bigger aspect of our Humanity than our reliance on facts. This is part and parcel of our being Human, we're
an emotional species. It is a large part of what makes us Human.
It's illogical to deny emotional impact when murder of innocents is perpetrated, otherwise we'd not care about any murder victims or catching and
punishing the murderers. To claim a child is older than he obviously is, is an attempt to minimise the emotional impact of his murder, to reduce the
severity of the act of murder on an emotional level.
For the record Flyers, i have NEVER once accused you of 'supporting the murder of children'...i seriously don't know why you would say that, unless
you are confusing me with another member?
I do not think you support the murder of children.
