For the last week, New York local news has been dominated by new revelations about the August death of a baby in a Queens day care center. Apparently, the center had been inspected an hour before toddlers at the center killed a baby in its crib.
I cannot begin to express how pleasing I found the idea of bloodthirsty two-year-olds surrounding a defenseless infant and murdering it.
According to the Washington Times, however, “the New York City medical examiner has ruled 7-month-old Matthew Perilli died from compression of his body by foreign objects. City sources told the New York Daily News the child had been in a crib at a Queens day care center when a group of unsupervised younger children began tossing toys and stuffed animals into the crib.”
And here I’d thought there was hope for the young.
