As reported, kidnappers in Mexico grabbed a 5-year-old boy named Javier Morena from street market, in order to hold him for ransom. However the kidnappers killed the boy by injecting acid into his heart, before they even issued a ransom demand.
This is quite possibly the worst thing I’ve heard of in a long, long time. Living near Chicago, I’ve (sadly) grown acustomed to reading about children being killed by criminals, but this really shocks me. It also shows that it is a person, rather than an inanimate object, that is to blame for such horrible acts. Acid, nail guns, firearms, knives, and every other tool can be used for good or bad purposes. Until the various governments around the world begin to target the true causes of crime, instead of blaming scapegoats such as guns, I fear that horrible things like this murder will become more and more frequent.
