Because there are too many stupid people in the world. One of whom was apparently allowed to parent an 8-year-old boy and be responsible for his death.
Click on this link with the warning that the stupidity is terrifying, heartbreaking and unbelievable. The father is the director of a Connecticut hospital’s ER.
Edited to add: At the bottom of this link, there is a picture of what appears to be a kid shooting off a Heckler & Koch while somebody else takes his picture. The dad involved in the kid’s death was also taking a picture. Wonder how that pic turned out.
