If God exists, why does He allow horrible things to happen?

Some people solve this logical problem by saying God doesn't exist. They say surely if He existed, He wouldn't let bad people get away with what they do. But someone a bit brighter can find a new solution for this problem; there is an afterlife.

What seems horrible to us are not 'horrible' in God's eyes. God cares about our souls, which nothing can destroy. When a child is murdered, he or she wakes up in Paradise (think of Frudo waking up in bed in the end of LOTR). So is this really a bad thing?
