It wasn't Sean's fault. It was an accident.

Slater needs to be executed A.S.A.P. Sean should be incarcerated for the rest of his life.

Accident, that could have been prevented if she was a responsible mom!!! My mother lives down the road from where this shooting took place. That woman was told to remove the guns from the house weeks before this happened because her son was shooting at vehicles on the road!!!!! This came straight from the mouth of a Ranger!!! She did not comply and see what happened? I hope she lives a life of hell for being responsible for what her son done, she could have prevented this tragedy........ people like her should not be able to reproduce!

I'm not saying that what Sean did is excusable. It's a hard situation and everyone in it was victimized. Sean didn't know that the gun was loaded and, trust me, he feels very guilty and wishes everyday that he could reverse what happened.

You freakin' people don't get it. It wasn't Sean's fault. He's not a murderer, he's a very nice guy. Sure he might have a few quirks, but who doesn't. And besides whether he did it or not it doesn't effect you.

I find it very disturbing that some people would think that it is not Seans fault that the accident happened. First and foremost if you are going to pick up a gun you had better see if it is loaded. Second everything we do in life effects someone else in some way or another. The best that we can hope for is to effect people in a possitive way. The mother is wrong for handing the means to do the crime to her son and the Sean is guilty for not being responsible enough to see this coming.

Sorry, in this case the Mother is as guilty as the son. May she spend every day of her sentence with no chance of an early parole.

meea you seem to think you what what you are talking about where in fact everyone else whos left a comment has it right you dont sean is a killer and his complete idiot of a mother both should have gotten years from this. this mother allowed her son access to the firearm and mind altering herbs alcohol and many other things. this mother should have gotten her child put in foster she doesnt deserve to be a mother. she gave all the ingredients to him for a tragedy. she is sickning and so is he. he new right from wrong at 12 you know not to point a gun ever at anyone. he should of gotten more than 90 days he should of gotten years and so should she. this family is sick undeserving of any happiness. the family left without a son has the life sentence
