I suppose if I were being flip I would have entitled it "Won't somebody please think of the children"

Of course in these cases it would be a very good thing.

Indeed, even the killer Marc Lépine, who was severely battered by his father as a small boy. (His mother, and I believe also his sister, were also beaten by the father).  His sister committed suicide later on, in 1996. :(

Not that I want to perpetuate the unfortunate tradition of remembering the names of killers far more than their victims, but I think this is an important point.

Of course his mother never got over the pain and guilt: http://www.cyberpresse.ca/article/20060 ... 09230835/0
