I hope that society keeps track I'd this child. Let's see how this child turns out when he is seventeen the same age as Harambe when he was killed.
Considering the child's background I expect he will not be an asset to society. At that time I think many folks will think back and preferred that Harambe was tranquilized.

I am amazed that some blame the zoo. This comes down to the parent being negligent. There is no way to idiot proof the world to keep morons safe. Your child, your responsibility.

So he's a white kid with black parents.



That poor gorilla was murdered in cold blood.
It's a damn zoo and they had no tranquilizer darts?
Really?

Murder??

Gorillas kill ... after playing with them, any living entity that isn't theirs!

A tranquilizer used on a Five Hundred Pound Gorilla will do nothing for minutes after the shot ... except make it madder, like swatting at a hornets nest!

Pathetic post of the year!

Well then they should've shot the kid instead. He was trespassing.
That gorilla was just being a gorilla doing gorilla things and all of a sudden some kid drops in and he gets shot.
I would've "accidentally" shot the kid.
I have bad eye sight.

LOL




PS I feel terrible for these parents. my kids could disappear in a half second. kids do that. I did that.
The kid was threatening his mother, stating he was going in with the gorilla and the mom argued with him... Horrible parenting

It's a shame that a gorilla had to die over the lack of parental oversight.
When I was a small child we had a school trip to a zoo. Many more children than school helpers on the bus trip to the Bronx zoo. It is the zoo's responsibility to keep children safe. They should make it impossible to get in where there is a dangerous animal. If they had done this, the gorilla would be alive. It is for the safety of the animal to keep people out then you don't have to shoot them dead. I go to THE ROOT of the problem.

I haven't heard any claims of racism over this. Maybe you need a new circle of friends?

I like how everybody is so quick to condemn the parents of this kid when they don't know exactly what happened, as if they are perfect and have never had a lapse in judgment or have ever made a mistake themselves.

This is the first I've heard of people calling racism. The article must have dredged the Internet to find them.

I surely did not mean to rep you. It is really ok to actually hope and wish that a child will be killed, or not be a productive member of society? What animals am I really living with??
