I see today that an eight-year-old boy has been charged with murdering his father and another man.
Yes, that’s just what we should do. We should take a kid who obviously has some sort of issues (though who knows what at this stage), and charge him with murder. Yes, I bet I know many, many people who’d think he should be put away for life.
This kid is eight, people! He probably still believes in the freakin’ Tooth Fairy! There is no justifiable reason he should be charged with any crime! If someone who is fifteen doesn’t have the capacity to consent to sex with someone older than they are, an eight-year-old really doesn’t have the capacity to understand the morals, ethics and consequences of what he was doing.
Oh, and on a side note, where did this kid get a gun? If it was his father’s, then the dad was negligent in not locking it up. Admittedly, he shouldn’t have paid with his life for that mistake, but you know what? I bet you that, even now, there are people out there who are pissed this kid won’t be able to receive the death penalty.
What a country…
