    Arrest in Etan Patz murder

    Arrest in Etan Patz murder

    A bittersweet update to my prior post about Etan Patz.

    Who knows if this is the real killer.  I guess we’ll find out as more evidence comes out.

    Hopefully the family will have the closure not only of a conviction, but of being able to bury Etan properly.

    The Criminal Complaint was short and to the point:

    to the full extent allowed by law.

    This is a sickening tragedy and should be a reminder to all parents that 6 years old walking to school alone is putting your child in grave danger. I don’t know how far away the bus stop was but what a tragic mistake. I have a neighbor I have known since 4 yrs. old. Even though she is not my child, I guarded her w my life. If we even went to the park, I would walk on the side of the sidewalk closest to the street. If someone tried to grab her, they would have to get to me first. I won’t even leave my dogs outside in the yard unattended for more than a few minutes.

      On the contrary, the paranoia sparked by this case has deprived two generations of children of the freedom that used to be our heritage, as overprotective parents don’t let children walk to school any more, or go out all day on their bikes, etc. The world is no more dangerous now than it was 40 years ago, and this one incident does not justify the response.

    The complaint mentions “a third person.”. What does that mean?
