Area Boy Beaten to Death

Here’s another story about one of these missing-in-action children. Child abuse is, like drug abuse, an equal opportunity employer.

This one didn’t die by neglect, though, in some drunk tank. He died from...violence, classism, hopelessness, rage. There’s a daily toll of kids like this, across the country. Some of them just end up as throw-aways; you can find them hanging out in big cities, aimlessly wandering in small towns. Some survive, some recover, some don't do either. The ones that don't, well, their circumstances are so bad, they get taken by some cosmic justice—I assume to a better place.

There are thousands of people falling through the holes in the Safety Net...assuming our society still has one. I’m beginning to doubt it.
