on Yahoo! news...and all I can think is W-T-F.
The article is about a young boy who was doused with gasoline and set on fire by a teenage neighbor in 1998; two weeks prior, the same neighbor sexually assaulted this young boy. However no charges were filed on the teen.
This poor little boy had burns on over 99% of his body; although he lived for another 13 years, he died of a rare form of skin cancer that developed due to his skin grafts.
The family was awarded a (symbolic) $150 billion settlement from the perp, but will never see the money.
I'm a little too tired to write anything more coherent/cohesive...this article is sad and scary....this little kid was walking in daylight to his friend's house - it just reinforces the scary thought that bad things can happen at anytime.
