    My sympathy to this child's family.

    My personal thank you to the Fayetteville Police Department for investigating the death of the child.

    Too many times bad parents try to blame a child's death on child syndrome or use some other excuse such as accidentally rolling on top of the child in their sleep.

    The court should mandate that each and every child's death in the United States be thoroughly investigated, that in itself will begin to make the parents think before they act.
