    I mean if they can't care for themselves and no one wants them why keep them alive?

    I'm not talking about grandma. Well maybe.

    What I'm saying is a child that will never be a functioning adult. A person that will require constant medication and supervision.

    It's sad really. Especially for the parents that have shoulder the burden.

    Most of these kids are neglected by their parents and they get shuffled off to the next institution that will take them. Most of these parents seek government assistance which is never quite enough.

    Yes they are, but if we refused to help them, we wouldn't be a very civilized society.

    I feel really uncomfortable when I see them in public.

    For instance, today at lunch at Del Taco, there was a bunch of seriously fucked up kids. They were sitting where I usually sit, so when I saw them, I went to the other side of the dining room

    True, but he holds down a job and can get to and from the beer store by himself, so he really doesn't count.
