    This is not a simple case of intentionally throwing a rock through someone's house window because of an impulse control problem. The kid a brought a gun to school. He belongs in a mental institution until he's adult because only insane people would bring a gun to scholl until the age of 9.

    Local News | Father says son who took gun to school 'made a bad mistake' | Seattle Times Newspaper

    I'm the first one here to suggest that there be tighter controls on firearms. This whole thing is sickening. And obviously the Mother will get sued at the very least in a civil suit. But I am at a total loss to understand how prosecuting this 9 year old boy, AND keeping him from his custodial parent is a good idea in the wake of this tragic accident.

    Putting a 9 year old boy in jail accomplishes what here?
    This is not a case for gun control at all. You don't punish the rest of us because of what some jackass did.... Or maybe you do. Some people drive recklessly, and cause accidents. That's it!! BAN ALL CARS NOW!!

    I'd be surprised if it was a legal firearm at all.
    It wasn't. It's illegal for a felon to own a firearm.

    Do you have an actual point here or was this just a hypothetical attempt at eliciting an emotional response?

    In the end, we know nothing about his intentions. He either intended to harm people or he didn't. I'd rather get all the information before drawing conclusions. That always seems to be the smart thing to do.
    no, it's not normal, but he wasn't brought up normally. we don't know his intentions, but he didn't get the put, point it and pull the trigger. for all we know he wanted to show it off to his buddies. you're right, we should try to ascertain his intentions, but in the meantime, putting him away probably won't help.

    Your posts have done nothing but display a clearly hyperbolic conclusion regarding the boy's mental state based on....supposition and idiotic assumptions...and really nothing else. So incredibly thankful you have absolutely no control over what happens to this boy. Your policy would ruin this child for life on the basis of unfounded fear and illegitimate conclusions.
