Caylee’s Law would not have saved Leiby Kletzky.


      After three days of searching, we have learned that Leiby Kletzky is indeed dead. The young boy from Boro  Park went missing on his way home from summer camp. When he went missing. According to news reports, he had begged his parents to let him walk home alone that day. The Kletzky’s compromised and agreed to meet their son halfway. They never did.



      The tragic tale begs comparison with the case of Casey Anthony. We all know the case of Caylee Anthony, who was missing for 31 days before her grandmother reported her missing to police. Despite the bizarre behavior of Casey Anthony, the mother, police and prosecutors were unable to find enough evidence to convict her of killing her daughter.
      In the aftermath, a number of legislators and citizens have come out in support of Caylee's law. The law wouldamek it a crime for a parent to not report their child's disappearance within a timely manner.
In both cases a child was reported missing. Only in one case, the Kletzky’s wasted no time in reporting the child missing. However, in both cases the result is the same; a gruesome demise for an innocent victim.  It should be stressed that Caylee’s law would not have saved Leiby Kletzky or Jaycee Dugard or Adam Walsh; and for that matter Caylee's law would not have helped Caylee Anthony.
