Bothering some? Who? Doesn't it take a village to raise a child? Setting some money down to help a kid in trouble is a Christian act and that is exactly what these parishioners are doing. What a blessing for this child that he has such caring people in his community who wish to support him in his time of need.

There are plenty of parishoners and residents of this community that could use help that are more deserving! If people want to donate to a fund for his defense it should go directly to his parents, not out of a church fund. He committed a horrible crime and will be punished accordingly. What if he had tried to murder your child? Would you still want to help pay for his defense? Why not use that money by creating programs to educate our kids so this doesn't happen again. Why not donate money to the real victim...the poor kid who was attacked.
