Re: “No Wonder There Isn't a Stronger Outcry About the Missing Boy

I think the reason for the lack of interest has to do with the fact that he is disabled. It seems in most cases missing children are not usually disabled and for some reason that makes them instantly relatable to the people in the communities they were a part of. I know it sounds harsh but as a person with a disability who has never been regarded as an equal in places in which I live and who since birth has been brushed aside by parents and adults in general I can see how this child could be so callously thrown away. First his "parents" discard him and now the public has done so. Had he been able bodied there would still be a huge interest in his whereabouts. Instead I can almost sense a sigh of relief as if to say "thank god that's one less burden on society that has been removed". Agree or disagree I don't care but it could very well be the truth. If you want proof consider the amount of people at his vigil in comparison to the little girl in the Tracy case. Night and Day!
