Child Abuse: No one Seems to Care

by Sharon

This story happened a long time ago: 
In 2000 there was a couple that spent the summer in a beautiful lake next to a park. They had a son that was 4 years old. His name was Jon, I believe. He was abused by his parents. They beat him with a belt and their bare hands. They set his legs in pans of boiling water and cut him. They stuck needles in him and took a cloth, stuck it in his mouth, tied him in a chair just to shut him up. One day they tied rope around his little feet and hung him in a closet. They left him there for three days, and when they went to take him out he was dead. Police say that he died because all the blood went to his head.

I just want to say that no one really cares about what is happening in the world. What people do in their own homes...anything can happen to anyone, but no one really seems to care about anyone, just themselves.
