Very tragic. My thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim here.
It reminds me of a story from when I was a younger child. I was involved in an elite youth baseball league when I was younger, and the year when I
was about 11, we had played against another team who's coach had played in the big leagues. I will leave his name out intentionally, but he played
with the St. Louis Cardinals for a short period of time. His son was one of the top ranked basketball players in this part of the country for his
age, and had high hopes for going somewhere in life with the game. He had purchased a Michael Jordan video which actually showed kids how they could
stretch their spine.
The results were that the chair folded in on the youngster and the noose tightened.
These are all examples of how curious kids are and how we need to filter what their eyes view.
Culpability is something a child lacks. There is no intent in their eyes, only curiosity. The family has some dark days in their future.
