Needle in a Haystack

Why would someone abduct young children, torture them, and then ultimately kill them? Is it a random act? Is there a pattern to the crime?

These are probably some of the questions on our minds while we keep our fingers crossed and pray for the safety of the young children that have gone missing in as many days. The police had also mounted a large-scale search operation. So many people are apparently trying desperately to help in any way they can. [The Star]

One has to wonder why are parents allowing their young children out to play without supervision, in spite of reported abduction just a few days before. Some of us never learn, do we? Things like this can only happen to others—not to me. The sense of danger never kick in until it's too late.

Is the police force doing enough? Maybe—just maybe—if they focused all of their resources on trying to find these kids, they might just be successful in the end. The only questions are when; are these kids to be found dead or alive; in one piece or in a sports bag, with some more pieces stuffed into them? I think if the police would only focus on the task like they did in tracing the culprits of the Chua Soi Lek's DVD, then they might have a shot at nabbing the sicko(s). If only...

With such a huge population, it's like searching for a needle in a haystack. But I am sure our police force is up to the task. They are efficient; and they work very quickly too. They performed very impressively in tracing the CSL DVD culprits. I am confident that they will shortly lay their hands on the sicko(s). I am sure they are giving top priority to this particular case—much the same way they gave top priority to the Nurin Jazlin's case. I am only worried that we don't have any CCTV footings to help them out this time...
