    Like what? Is there a way to force people like this parents to give a **** before they turn out like this?

    I'm personally all for mandatory abortion or giving up for adoption for people who get knocked up and aren't fit to take care of children.

It's kind of like when a thief gets stolen from, no expectation of pity should be had.
    But if a kid can be rehabilitated and saved, why would you wish to kill him instead?

    That's fine, if the family doesn't want it that should be taken into consideration.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    The question seems, what that new and improved something is.

    I don't know anything about these kids' parents. I do know that there have been several serial killers at least who apparently had normal upper middle class upbringings though.

    People say "lets try something else", but those people have no idea on what else to try.
