Cristain Fernandez(12), another "thrown away" child?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/violent-past-uncertain-future-florida-teen-facing-homicide-and-sexual-battery-charges/2012/09/16/960af706-001e-11e2-bbf0-e33b4ee2f0e8_story.html

Excerpt.......please read full article, seems this child never had a chance since birth, now facing criminal charges. He did NOT get to where he is today, ALL  BY HIMSELF.

"A decade before he was charged with murder, a 2-year-old Cristian Fernandez was found naked and dirty, wandering a South Florida street. The grandmother taking care of him had holed up with cocaine in a messy motel room, while his 14-year-old mother was nowhere to be found. His life had been punctuated with violence since he was conceived, an act that resulted in a sexual assault conviction against his father. Fernandez’ life got worse from there: He was sexually assaulted by a cousin and beaten by his stepfather, who committed suicide before police investigating the beating arrived.........."

Justice must be tempered with "compassion and mercy"
