You know what's particularly disturbing about this? I saw a sign at the rally that said, "It ought to be illegal to kill a child" and I immediately thought of 8 year-old Jamiah Batts who died on her school bus February 29th. I believe that Jamiah was killed by policy and by neglect. She was disabled, about as physically disabled as one can be. Confined to a wheelchair and dependent on others to take care of her and they failed her. Unfortunately there is no lone gunman to pin her death on and to herd a lynch mob around. Just governmental negligence and betrayal. Where is her rally? Where are the cries for justice? It is illegal to kill a child, unless you are a government agency. If you are a government agency you just secretly settle in court and pay off the judgment with taxpayer money, no one is held accountable and made to stand trial in criminal court, no one will have their picture in the news, no one will even suffer the public shame that may one day cause another to rethink policy and prevent the likelihood of another child's death.
