Too often

Stories like these happen too often here in NYC. Actually, that it happens at all is too often for me. I guess that it is inevitable in such a big place - and some people would say that we should be grateful that it doesn't happen more often - but it should not happen, ever. And imagine how many stories like this go unreported. Really, how do you not realize that depriving a child of water is deadly? Here is her lawyers' statement:
"I just think she's got a sad history and it's just a whole tragic incident,'' [public defender Christine] Janis said.

What a load of bull. A sad history does not give you the excuse to torture a toddler to death. This is nothing less then the murder of an innocent child, and brings tears to my eyes.
