Justice for Jason

I talked about this story earlier in my blog. This really surprises me. The so-called parents have actually been charged with murder and several other charges.

Here are the high points of the article. To read the whole thing, click here.

Little Jason Rimer was alone outside in the big sport utility vehicle. But no one seemed to notice.

He was a 4-year-old who still wore diapers, couldn't dress himself and had trouble walking because of a genetic disease that crippled his body and his mind.

"When I looked, I didn't find him either. So I don't know why it slipped my mind," Colleen Rimer told police. "Then I just went and took dinner to my husband."

That night, Colleen Rimer woke up about 1 a.m. to go to the bathroom and "didn't have the right kind of feeling. You know what I mean?" she told police. She lay down and went back to sleep.

During questioning by detectives, Colleen Rimer denied that she or anyone else intentionally hurt Jason. The detectives suggested that was the case, pointing to evidence that she drove a different vehicle to pick up her oldest son from church and suggesting she intentionally asked one of her developmentally disabled sons to get Jason from the SUV in hopes he would fail.

Not justice yet. But they're on the right track.
