Bump Robocop33 on this one.
I don't think the law will allow him to be tried as an adult, but he should be tried. Something truely snapped in this young man to cause him to do this horrible act. I hope that the injured children will recover and maybe shed some light on why this happened.
If he done it he needs to be charge as an adult, 40 years not life. He cold kill his parents and shot two other family members. He needs to face the consequences of his action and be charge as an adult.
I would like to know why he did it. This is obviously not 12 year old behavior. I agree with Robocop I am not sure about charging as an adult at 12 years old.
Wow. As tragic as this is, I believe it would be even more tragic not to try him as an adult. He didn't just wound his parents, he killed them!!!
An unfortunate series of events for sure. After dealing with juveniles for nearly a decade, I no longer underestimate what they are capable of. Scary to believe that such actions can come from someone so young. Sure lots of influencing factors.
I can't even wrap my head around this! Not sure about trying him as an adult because of his age but certainly try him for murder and make sure that this evil thing never walks free, ever! Then you have this crazy Pastor saying he was a "good boy"? What planet is he living on?
BURLINGTON, Colo. — Prosecutors plan to charge a 12-year-old Colorado boy with killing his parents and wounding two of his younger siblings.
District attorney Robert Watson says he plans to file first-degree murder and other charges against the boy by the end of Friday.
He hasn't decided whether he'll try to prosecute him as an adult. Watson says he'll take into account the wishes of the rural community of Burlington as he makes that decision.
Residents have expressed disbelief about the accusations. The family's pastor described the boy as a "good kid."
Authorities say the boy called 911 Tuesday evening to report a shooting in his home. Officers arrived and found the bodies of Charles and Marilyn Long. Two of their children were wounded — a 5-year-old girl and a 9-year-old boy.
Authorities said the two children were critically hurt, but family members are said to be hopeful they'll recover.
