    OT: What is wrong with people???

    Boy, 5, doused in gas, set on fire by masked men - CNN.com

    What moves people to do something like this? If the people responsible for this are ever caught I think they should be doused in gas and let the fire burn till there is nothing left to burn.

    I'm a big believer in capital punishment and to take it a step further (which this would never happen but I wish it could) is if you commit a crime that kills or severely wounds someone your punishment should be the same that you inflicted on the victim.

    Exactly, I read the title and I refuse to click it. I have no need to read that. My kids are 4 and 7, how can people do these things to kids?

    I read it and it just makes me sick. I have no problems w/ travman's suggestion of punishment.

    Hopefully someone will step up and get this kid back to the US for some help.

    I wonder if he could get on one of the reality shows like Dr 90210. Extreem Makeover (not home add) use to help people like him. It might help us "win hearts and minds" over there.

    I was an advocate of this for Susan Smith, the mother who locked her young sons in the car and rolled it into a lake, telling the police they were kidnapped by African-American males. Strap her in a junker and roll it slowly into the same lake...
