I didn't know exactly where to put this......
John Walsh (host of America's Most Wanted) and his wife finally have some closure in their life over their son's death 27 years ago.
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - The abduction happened 27 years ago, at a time when parents routinely left their children playing in the toy store, unattended, and continued shopping.
But when Reve Walsh returned to pick up her 6-year-old son, he wasn't there. Over the mall loudspeaker, the plea came: "Adam Walsh, please come to customer service."
Two weeks later, fishermen discovered the boy's severed head in a canal 120 miles away from the Hollywood mall. His body was never found.
now listen to this from a college sociologist/criminologist:
Others are more hesitant to dole out credit. John Walsh's efforts, said Mount Holyoke College sociologist and criminologist Richard Moran, have made children and adults exponentially more afraid of the world.
"He ended up really producing a generation of cautious and afraid kids who view all adults and strangers as a threat to them and it made parents extremely paranoid about the safety of their children," Moran said.
ummm.....well.....YEAH!! has this guy seen what evil killers, rapists, robbers, and other scumbags are in the world preying on the innocent?!?!?!?!?
its people like this, and thinking like this that has created a generation of because they don't see what is happening around them!!!!!!
I was so happy to read this article about the case being solved and it really ticked me off when I read this professor's statements
