This is wrong. this boy is the victim here. All he needs is a time out and some hughs from the liberials. Besides, he one of those who got spanked when he was younger. He may have been bullied in school.

This is what happens when children are raised in homes where consequences are non-existent. If this kid pulled the trigger, he needs to be convicted and learn the hard way there is a price to pay for taking a life.

I agree.
Yes, By All Means that boy only deserves hugs & kisses. Not jail.
Poor little feller.
It's not his fault no one showed him how to use a gun.
Just doesn't seem right.
He probably had every right to shoot & kill someone else.
Wow!! Look at all the attention he's getting!! That's neat.
That's better than having a "Boom Box" blaring in your ears looking for attention!!
Kill someone the first time?
The second and subsequent time becomes that much easier in that frame of mind!!!
"Probably because of all the hugs & kisses"?

What the H*** kind of drugs are you taking??
Hope you're not a member of any parol board.
Post your name & address for him to thank you for your concern.
BANG!!
Thank You

If this kid actually committed this violent intentional act then he should be treated as an adult and recieve the maxium penalty. We need to start giving them harsh adult penalties if they wish to disregard the law and forget thier place as a youth and under age minor.

This is exactly what happens when a parent's right to discipline is thrown out the window. Thank you so much, bleeding heart liberals. Then, the teachers' and school authorities' right to keep discipline in the schools are done away with. These kids are taught that they will never be held accountable for their actions.
Don't you think it's time we started getting these kids back on the right track with good, old fashioned discipline, and teaching them that they will have to face the consequences of their actions?

When I was his age I got my ass-whipped for disobeying my parents. That way I wasn't afraid of the police, eventually they would turn me loose. It was my parents that I had to face once that happened. Of course that was before our Government took the RIGHTS away from the parents and now the parents are afraid to correct the kids not only afraid of going to jail but afraid that the kids will shoot them! This happened right around the corner from where I have lived for the last 38 years!

In Germany, he would be tried as an adult, anyone over 13 yo. Also eligible for life in prison. Let's change venue to Texas!

Yet the parents are the first one anybody blames when a kid goes wrong. I got diciplined when I was younger, with a swith I might add, and by a paddle at school. I had the fear of God put in me. I don't consider it child abuse. I'm thankful my parents cared enough about my future to dicipline me. I see why they did it now. These kids know that their parents can't do anything so they push you as hard as they can. Anyway they aren't responsible, their parents get to take the wrap for them. Dicipline didn't hurt my generation or others before me. You see what is happening now?

It is doubtful the kid even knows who both parents are. He's a cold blooded murderer and for that there is no redemption on Earth. Take him out to the street and shoot him.

I keep getting told by the youth that their life is real life and that's how it is and you do what you have to do blah, blah, blah. They say I'm living in a fantasy world or I just run from the real one. I've been there, done that my friends, and I decided I won't live that life when I can be happy with the life I choose to make for myself. All that drama, heartache, anger and sadness. Why? When I got cancer on top of everything else going on in my life, I knew then something had to change. Cancer free now and happy I got a second chance. Got out of that stupid lifestyle and things have really gone good for me since.

Kid was on Probation. Should have been in the Dept of Corrections already but the judge wouldn't agree to it. Everyone saw this coming. Oh, and after he was read his rights, he admitted to the crime and still had the gun on him.

And the victim, sad as it is, repaired vehicles. And was usually paid in crack. The cycle of crime will never end.

Charge the parents? right, daddy left his momma before he was born and she's hooking on the corner to pay rent. There is no bleeding heart liberal made law saying you can't disciplin your child. Beat the holy living f***ing sh*t out of him for spilling milk is what they're trying to keep you from doing, or burning your baby with an iron because she's crying, yeah, bad liberals, shame on them for telling you how to not disipline your child. If you raise your children properly from the start and consistent, you won't have to worry about you angle popping a cap in some guys chest for a drug deal, oh I mean disputed auto repair, at 1am.

Probably should be charged with 'Driving without a License' and a number of traffic violations.

wow! Settling it with a gun -- that's final, isn't it? What kind of uncontrooled anger does this kid have? Sounds like he's one of life's lost and probably should be kept away from soceity -- his actions were very cold-blooded. My opinion--he is not rehabilitatable (there has to have been other violence before this), and shouldn't be in society.
