Now that those 3 boys have been found tragically dead in that Toyota Camry trunk up in Camden, N.J., get ready for:<br><br>--A global media jihad against Toyota and their car trunks. Why can't it be opened from the inside? What a terrible design...don't they know kids are going to climb inside and shut it? Killers!<br><br>--A push to completely redesign all cars and their car trunks. We need warning labels, instructional videos, sensors in the trunk to detect whether or not children may be inside and a bright, orange, glow-in-the-dark neon latch on the inside of the trunk!<br><br>What you won't hear is any blame being leveled at the family, the parents or the owner of the car. How did they get in the trunk? Why weren't they being watched? And for Heaven's sake, why on Earth didn't someone look in the trunk?<br><br>I don't mean to make light of a tragedy, just criticize the media's coverage of it. <br><br>

Parents can't and shouldn't be watching over their kids 24 hours a day and turning them into pussies. We used to play in old abandoned cars as kids too. But we were smart enough to know how to get out of them. The stuff I did as a kid when I was away from my folks would probably have gotten them locked up in todays society. It's stupid.<br><br>Besides from the description this sounds like an old abandoned car, not a shiny new model. Many new cars do have big glow in the dark handles in the trunks to open them.<br><br>
