I can't get away from these alarmist stories about children. Today's Mercury News had its lead front page story about a toddler who fell into a swimming pool. The first sentence was about the kid falling in; the second about the neighbor pulling him out; and the third was about the possibility of the police filing criminal charges. Can't anyone just accept the possibility that it was just an accident? I am opposed to criminalized accidents like this.
