It is sad how it is immediately implied that the parents were at fault some how.
I think this happens because people don't want to face how dangerous the world really is. They want to believe that this could never happen to their children because they are so much more vigilant. It's a coping strategy because, if we ever truly faced how many things can happen to our children that we absolutely can't control or prevent, we'd never be able to get through a day.
