Again I'm not sure what the proper way to advise parents of this would be but I strongly do not think this was it.

    Fair enough but you get the parents in to make IDs instead? Because that's what they did. Take 8hrs if necessary to sort things out properly... that's my point.

    Don't send everyone in hoping they see their child to not only find their baby isn't there but then to see the relief/tears of other families when they realise theirs is. That doesn't seem unnecessarily cruel?

    taking an hour to unite kids with their parents would surely cause more harm to the kids than would help the situation....and im not trying to be critical of your comment, but im just saying there was most likely no right answer given the resources on hand at the time...like i said in another post if there were a few kids then i'm sure it could have been handled delicately but 20 sets of parents....holy shit...overwhelming

    I don't think the time frame would have harmed the kids... no concept at that point as long at they have full bellies and are entertained. But I do see your point about being overwhelmed. Easy for me to say I guess how I'd appreciate it being handled if it were my baby or one of your guys'... much different when you're actually the person making the decisions after only practicing this at St John's on a dummy. I get that. I still feel the whole thing was horribly cruel but your point is very well taken Drinker.

    you are so right. The parents know their kid is dead, because if they weren't dead then they would be with them. BUT, one simple mistake on this could be devastating. They have to go by protocol and of course it sucks, but they really have to do it how they are doing it.

    Of course, this is just unprecedented, perhaps protocol goes out the window. You still need to just make sure you don't make a devastating mistake that changes even more lives.

    They're amazing people doing the things we'd never wish on our worst enemy. Yet most of us call them pigs and disparage them some other way daily. It's one thing to go to work and not be sure if you have to work hard, what meetings you have, etc. It's another to not have any warning this is what you'll be dealing with. I need to start honouring the cops around me more.

    I have a question maybe a religious person can help
    so I am not religious but I have heard god will always forgive you of your sins
    so if this guy asked for forgiveness would god have forgiven him?

    I'll be goddamned if they'd keep me away from my kid.

    They better fukkin taze me and the sedate me, because there's absolutely no chance I'm not getting to my kid.

    I am at a loss for words.

    This world is a fukked up place. Right of left, male or female, we need to come together and bring an end to this madness. I can't imagine having a child not only die this heinous way but to leave a baby laying dead in their blood on the floor of their murder scene 15 hours later. Fukk. People need to talk to their children, reach out to people. Find out their issues. Get them help. We need to be responsible, people need to be accountable.

    that sounds like the worst possible way of handling this situation. must've been sheer chaos at that point.

    no one here can answer that. that's between the individual and God, none of our business nor do we have the knowledge.

    sadly the national enquirer has been replaced by abc, nbc, cbs, cnn, fox, etc. and we seem to be okay with that
