A few weeks ago a mom took her children to the zoo and her 3 year old toddler managed to get away from her grasp. He entered a gorilla’s area and the gorilla tossed him around like a rag doll. The zoo officials made the decision to kill the gorilla to save the child. Protesters appeared questioning the zoo’s decision to kill the gorilla. The parents were put under extreme scrutiny. The father’s criminal record which had nothing to do with situation were made public. A petition was launched calling for the parents to be prosecuted. No prosecution was launched but where was the love for them? In the Orlando situation the father was walking with his toddler son and his son was wading in shallow water when he was attacked by an alligator. The child was killed and this is tragic, but the parents were never vilified they received universal sympathy. The father was immediately hailed as a model father. No one asked why would a 3 year old be allowed to wade into Floridian water? No they received grace pure and simple and that is what the family in Ohio should have also received.
America grieved with the parents who lost their child to an alligator…but why did they want to prosecute the parents whose child was almost mauled by a gorilla?
