Child, 8- Double Murderer?

I am having a tough time wrapping my brain around this news of an 8 year old boy committing double homicide.

I just don’t know if I believe what I’m hearing…

According to news sources, this 8 year old kid inexplicably- but purposely- shot and killed his father, and his father’s roommate.

Huh?

Perhaps I’m naive… or overly optimistic… but how is it possible for an 8 year old to consciously, knowingly, commit murder?

To shoot two people…

On purpose.

There is no history of abuse… no known disciplinary problems…

… Just a regular ol’ kid… a regular ol’ dad… and a regular ol’ roommate…

Two of them dead.

A child’s life, ruined.

I don’t believe it… I can’t believe it.

The police interrogated the boy at length- without reading him his rights (who knows if he’d have understood them- but that isn’t the point), or having a parent or lawyer present.

He confessed.

I wonder… was it a confession?

Or coercion?

The story is missing huge chunks of information. It can’t possibly be as simple as we’re being told it is…

… Police, as yet, have no motive.

A gag order has been imposed by the judge assigned to the case.

The interrogation is public record, but no one associated with the case is allowed to discuss it publicly.

Legal analysts, lawyers and child advocates all seem to agree…

… Something doesn’t smell right.

Yeah.

It’s downright putrid.

  1. You are right. There should have at least been a guardian present during his confession. It’s ridiculous. You are right. Something happened between the time when he was a baby learning to walk and today. People aren’t inherently evil.

  2. Politicalmusic-

    I agree… and I’m just not even certain he did this crime at all.

    He’s told at least 3 different stories… he didn’t have any type of advocate present during his interrogation…

    … And the judge is allowing him to go home and stay with his mother for two days for Thanksgiving.

    If he was an evil psychotic killer, why would he be released long enough to spend time with his loved ones?

    Doesn’t make sense…
