    You're right Kali. The child does need some kind of consequence because this is a very bad mistake, but it was an honest one I think. I think counseling and a little community service and maybe at most a couple of weeks in a facility should be the limit.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I just read the part about her having meth around the kid when he was 2 1/2 years old... that's trashy.

    You clearly know nothing about children. This is not an adult. It is a 9 year old KID and to think that a 9 year old child belongs in a mental ward til they are an adult withouth knowing all the details is insane

    Now you are just making stuff up! How do you know he is a pscho? How do you know he is not normal? It has already been made clear his parents are crap but do not try to paint this kid as some evil being

    Yes, he is 9 years old. He has no idea what the repercussions are of a gun. He has no concept of the real meaning of death, much less any of the philosophical arguments surrounding it. He may have known people who have died but cannot yet understand the idea or permanence. It is like trying to understand the concept of the universe --it never ends.

    I think it's unwise to just assume 9 year olds don't know what guns are, what they can do, and what might happen if they hurt someone seriously.

    There are countless 9 year olds who are well versed in weaponry and all things injury and death - maybe this one individual did kid not know. But I don't know - we don't know him well enough. That's something we can't determine on our own here.
