middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« A missing girl, Jayme, has been in the headlines periodically for months, and she’s been found. The headline and lead of a story rarely tells the whole story, but in this case it does. Man, not known to the family, invades a home, kills mom and dad, and sequesters daughter, Jayme. There was a call made to family during the violence, which triggered police to the home minutes later, but the police missed the puratrator and Jayme. There is reality in my next statement and not cynicism or politics. Jayme is a white girl of Wisconsin, and not a brown child at the border. Jayme’s parents were also murdered leaving much evidence of the crime, but no leads to the perpetrator. The circumstances, race, and national origin make Jayme’s case more newsworthy. Crimes against children exemplified by Jayme’s story are a category of crimes that are especially horrifying. There was not much to follow in Jayme’s missing story, but now she’s been found and begins transitioning to the rest of her childhood, and life as an adult. My sentiment at this moment is focused on Jayme, her remaining family, and her future. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us
