So whats the big deal if he goes back home to live with his mom? The father was a piece of crap abuser and the courts did nothing to get that child from him even after his mother tried several times. The father drove him to kill. Leave the family alone and let them move on you jerk!

Oooh and by the way! They will not be here long because of people like you LEFTY They plan on moving out of state very soon because of losers like you who will harras them on a regular basis! Get a life! I bet you have a lot hidden in your closet!

Grow up, he did his time as ordered by the court. Hopefully the entire family will have time to heal.

this boy was driven to kill that monster of a "father." no loss there in my opinion.

with mandated post-release care, let's hope he puts this behind him and gets back on the path toward being a productive young man.

embrace this young boy and let him finish his education, play sports or involve himself in other extracurricular activities, involve himself with an appropriate group of friends, and get on with his life.

of just a handful of 13-year-old kids who have killed in this country, outside of NYC, this must be a very unusual case.

give him a chance. just like the other poster said, he did his time.

all said and done really don't think i'd be so open to that happening if my son or daughter decided to become friends with this child and if the family moves and becomes the new neighbor i think i for one would want to know who he was.i pray intense therapy is in order for the whole family. as far as
"just a handful of kids killing" the 13 year old that killed the 2 year old...20 years ago a 11 year old killed his 9 year old brother in west winfield...don't know about anyone else but my hands are full... we live in a very small area for this to be occurring we hear of kids committing crimes and our thought immediatly we think of our own children or others in the same age bracket..there can't or should be no comparission..really don't know what the anwser is...

Well Said. To think that 2 years locked up is going to fix this murdering little punk...is as nuts as he is. Should have thrown away the key on this kid. All you liberals better keep this in mund...maybe the one he kills next is you or you kid!

wait a minute, r u people actually defending that this kid had the right to kill his father because he was abusive? Perhaps this kid did do the time that was sentenced upon him, but it was way to short. He will hurt, lame, kill again. Once u kill, particularly the way he shot his own father, your destined to do it again. His coping skills are now skewed forever! He'll always know that he "got rid of" his source of contention and paid very little conseqence. What will he do to a wife who gets on his nerves or a child? How about if he is rejected, how will he handle losing a love interest? The family can go on all the geographical cures they want; but it won't stop this kid from getting into trouble again. HE KILLED HIS FATHER - I can't believe that u people are sticking up and saying = let's hope he gets on the right track = r u kidding me! Wow, ignorance! Let's hope he does move away, far, far away so when he does hurt someone they won't be local. Good Riddance ... move!

unless you lived the life of an abused child, who are you to judge?? Every abused kid snaps at sometime or another, some more severe than others. If this"father" was such a great guy he would be alive. God bless this kid and i pray he gets all the help that he needs and deserves...ya know the help he should have gotten when he was just a little abused boy and NOBODY did a thing for him.

Are you a psychologist? A psychiatrist? A researcher?

A lot of arm-chair psychologists who read snippets from the OD will weigh in without knowing what this boy was going through. What do you think drives young children like this to kill?
Where's the research that shows that victims of domestic violence who fight back go on to become dregs of society? Cite your source. We're not talking about a violent gang-member here.

This was not a greedy Menendez-style murder. This was something straight out of "The Burning Bed." If law enforcement and service agencies can't (or won't) protect these children from their own abusive PARENT, it's no small wonder when they finally take matters into their own hands.

This is a different scenario than a young boy who shoots someone for drugs. Or for money. Or for any other material object. This is different than a young child who kills even out of anger.

Try to understand this boy's FEAR. His DESPERATION. Can you feel what it might have felt like to be in his shoes?

This is an example of extreme self-preservation.

This boy is not a monster. And he'll be paying the price for his actions for the rest of his life.
your not funny

His father used to touch him in the private area and make him fondle him, and he used to show him his privates in a mustrd jar and rub it. thats why he shot him. leave the kid alone.

You are far from ever being a psychologist.

If you have ever been involved in helping disturbed children (especially at the age of 13), you would realize they still have the mind of a child and do NOT have the maturity of how to "cope" with a situation that he/she has failed to get help. This boy's Mom tried everything she could to help her son from being abused but no one would listen or help her.

We all have our breaking points and this boy was pushed to the edge until he finally snapped and took care of his abuser his way.

Sure, it is wrong to take another person's life and I'm sure this young boy has been to HE** and back, and will live these horrible memories for the rest of his life. Hopefully, he can now start private counseling and learn how to overcome these dark memories and put them behind him.

Remember, before you sit in Judgment on a young man, walk in his shoes for a few years then let us know what YOU would have done to stop the torture.

No, I'm sorry, "ltu", the mother didn't try everything she could to "help her son from, being abused". She was probably as scared of the man as her son was.

I know a child who was abused by a "step-father" from age 4 or 5 until 10 years old. The mother did nothing (and I'm sure she knew) until she finally divorced the animal. At age 16, the child told the mother about the years of abuse, and the mother's response was "you must have done something to encourage it."

IMO - this woman doesn't deserve to be called a "Mother".

This boy's mother DID try to help her son as she went to Court trying to get the law to do something to help her protect her son - the Police and the Courts didn't do anything to help her.

You are probably right, she probably also lived in fear of him. If I remember the facts of this case, the father and mother were Divorced and the Father had Custody of this boy. The Mother tried to everything she could to try and get her son back - but no one would listen to her.

Children do NOT lie about sex abuse. If one of my children, or grandchildren, ever told me something like this I would definitely believe them. Fortunately, none of my children or Grandchildren have ever had to face this type of trauma.
