I just read this and It shocked me. 11 year old boy "murdering" his six year old brother is sweeping the nation right now. I am not so sure of ALL the details but it doesn't look so good. What are some thoughts coming to your head? My thoughts are that this child obviously knew what would happen if he used a gun, but the most important thing here is that he is still a child. A child being the lowest mental point in human development, is still dependent on an adult of our species, a PARENT. Grown men walk away from murder and rape everyday so I better not hear of any life sentences being thrown around! It's an abomination. The mental capacity fully grows until the age of 26. Therefore it would not be appropriate to act as if he were a adult.
