12-year-old with autism killed caregiver seriously injured after being hit by car

The caregiver was injured after being struck by a car and then the child killed her. I think the article conveyed that pretty well.

Commas. Live them. Love them. USE THEM

Feels like this headline could have used a comma.

Personally, I think that the world needs more semicolons; they're really useful.

Dude, she's in serious condition, don't you think slipping into a comma is a bit excessive?

That tagline's second two periods should have been commas.

Aside from the clearly and horrifyingly incorrect headline, I was struck by the quote from the neighbor:
"Oh my God, that's awful, but I didn't know that (the group home) was there and I don't know how I feel about it being there because I didn't know," the woman said.

So the group home was there and never caused enough of an issue for her to notice it was there, but now that she's noticed, she's not sure she wants it there.  Nice.

I am so glad someone else noticed this tidbit.  I know NIMBY is real, but damn, this is a helluva example.

I'd never seen the tagline for this before!  LMAO at "zero tolerance" for stuff like this.

"Police said they're investigating why the child ran into the street and what could've been done to prevent it."

I'm gonna have to go out on a limb here and say that living in a group home may have had something to do with it.

/sad

Not so CSB: This reminds me of my friends. They were in their early 50s and had adopted a couple of special needs kids. One day the dad was helping one kid get his bike helmet on and when he turned around the 6 year old autistic son was gone. They quickly got the neighbors to start searching. They started fanning out and someone got the horrid thought about a nearby creek. Everyone started running through the woods and they found the boy had drowned and was already dead, CPR didn't work. As they pulled him out they noticed that the dad was missing. They found him in the woods, dead from a massive heart attack.

It was the most heartbreaking funeral I've ever been to.

Semicolons come off as particularly snobbish; I use them regularly.

Rimmer : After intensive investigation, comma, of the markings on the alien pod, comma, it has become clear, comma, to me, comma, that we are dealing, comma, with a species of awesome intellect, colon.

"Oh my God, that's awful, but I didn't know that was there and I don't know how I feel about it being there because I didn't know," the woman said.

You shouldn't feel about it any particular way, lady. It does nothing to affect you in any way. It's a group home for goddamn autistic kids, not a low security halfway house for serial killers and rapists. Hell, I was in a group home for assorted "problem kids", and the amount of stuff that impacted the neighborhood was almost zero. We got into no more stupid trouble than normal bored kids were, and we were way more noteworthy as neighbors than a bunch of autistic kids. They aren't going to negatively impact anyone in your neighborhood.

OK, the person who runs over autistic kids and their caregivers is going to be affected, but that's it.

Ftfa:

we got a NIMBY!  Lived there for year and wasn't bothered by it.... yet now it's a problem only because special needs kids happen to live there.

You'd think the fact she didn't know the group home would prove its just fine.
