    And the lights are shown here. Those horns do look pretty damn sharp.

    Truly sad. What a heartbreaking way to lose a child.

    Glad his friend had the presence of mind to do what he did.

    I can't wait for the litigation to begin on this one. That museum will look different in a few.

    Love the story comments. One of the first ones talks about how the kid is probably an illegal, so good that he died before he could cause harm to others. Seriously? Some people...

    At 3 AM? Probably not.

    Which begs the question, who takes their kids for a walk at 3 AM?
