The 17 year old has been a bad seed from day one. Don't let his mama feed you her sob story. She's as much to blame as anyone for the crime.
Where's the baby daddy?
Prison!
Now they get to visit on a daily basis.

Hopefully not only will this be handled in adult court, but the lethal injection dosage will be adult sized too. Would you like to super size that?

Unlikely that that would happen, but nice thought.

I know its a horrible thing that happened all the way around..And although 17 yrs old- he should be tried as an adult and face adult actions..But my hat goes off to these mothers..Instead of making excuses for their kids/crimes like most moms do (even when you know they did it)(and we are all guilty of to some degree)and keeping their heart/mind open for its not the adults fault.

Dunn, Burr's mother has known from early on that her son has mental health issues. The schools were powerless to control the child, even in a self-contained classroom. He showed a violent streak in first grade. There was help out there for Sirquain, but the mother simply relied on the schools to babysit him. She had washed her hands of him long ago and expected the system to provide without any effort on her part.
It had to boil down to someone getting killed. Now, the system, in the form of the Courts and Department of Corrections will take control and provide for the rest of this child's life.
All the warning signs of potential violence were obvious once the child was enrolled in the public school system. That didn't just magically appear in first grade.
This child's parents failed at being parents. They should be held accountable. Look at the child's attendance record. It is not the school's responsibility to get the child out of bed and in a classroom. Somewhere along the line the parent(s) have to do the right thing and get the necessary mental health help very early in life for these children. A lot of time was spent securing section 8 housing and food stamps, but none on mental health screening and treatment.

These kids are walking advertisements for free abortions for welfare recipients. Better yet: mandatory abortions.

In order for you to make indepth statements about someone or their circumstances, you must first have insight. It sounds like you have tunnel vision. You and others speak about the culprit's actions being directly or indirectly related to his parents. Don't start @ his parents, keep going... his parents' parents' parents'. Maybe you'll discover that there hasn't been any recovery from that family's dramatic history.
