I’m not sure if anyone out there who does not live in Jersey heard about this tragic event that claimed 3 kids a few days ago in Camden. Somehow, 3 children went missing and then some days later, they were found dead in the trunk of a family car. Police came and helped search along with family members and friends in numerous places and for roughly 2 days and no one could come up with their location. Most feared kidnapping, but as one of the fathers was looking in the trunk of a Camry, he made the gruesome discovery. As tragic as this event was, what happened next made me sick to my stomach.
One of the fathers of the children immediately placed the blame solely on the police in a press conference for not finding the children sooner in the trunk.
Now, here’s the kicker… Most of the experts agreed that the children would have perished way before the police were called in, however it was reported that the parents waited 3 HOURS before bringing in the police. Now, I can’t fathom what a parent must go through when they lose track of their children in this manner only to find them dead at a later time, but if my kid were gone 10 minutes, you bet your ass I would be calling the cops! I mean with all of the kidnappings and everything going on, why in the world would a parent wait 3 HOURS to get the authorities involved?!?
Also, during the 3 hours you were searching for your kids, why couldn’t you also look in the trunk? For that matter, shouldn’t the parents be looking after the children a bit more closely? Camden is pretty much one of the worst places you can live in this country and to not watch after your kids in such a dangerous city doesn’t seem to make much sense to me. I am getting so sick and tired of people relinquishing all form of common sense and responsibility for their own actions and placing blame where it does not belong. I know what happened was a tragedy that resulted in the loss of three innocent lives, but be very careful where you place the blame on this. Unfortunately, some of us in this world are forced to learn very valuable lessons such as this the hard way.
