    What the heck? It does say he was booked for beating and raping a 50yr old hours before slaying. And they let him go?

    I agree the kid went through a horrofic event that he will never forget. But sometimes you see kids who act more rational than adults in emergency situations.

    I think people here believe they are in one of the Zimmerman threads by the tone and language.
    Once I had a 2 year old dial 911 from behind the sofa while I was clearing up the dinner dishes.. 911 called me back and asked if there was a problem... there wasn't.

    Happens all the time.

    This story makes NO sense to me at all..
    People do not see themselves as inherently evil. That is, they donít claim to commit heinous atrocities against fellow man for the pure joy of it. They always have some bull**** rationale. Every rapist, shooter, armed robber, murderer, wife beater and petty thief all rationalized their behavior.

    They all paint themselves as the victims, every single one of them, and Iíve met quite a few

    The crimes they commit donít change, only the reasons each gives to explain away his/her transgressions change

    What you refer to is a poorly written sentence by the reporter. Apparently the rape of the 50 year old occured a few hours before the hammer crime. But he was not "booked" before the hammer crime. He was presumably booked for both at about the same time.

    You simply have no idea what you're talking about here. You cannot equate the actions of a child innocently calling 911 who has not suffered from any trauma to that of a child who has just suffered a deeply traumatic event.

    Trauma can cause each individual to react differently. I've witnessed this numerous times whilst working as a paramedic.

    This is so true. People wonder why I'm so cautious about my fellow man.... it's because back in my cop days I met all too many evil SOBs, some of whom would consider torturing children a fine evening's entertainment. Mostly they looked perfectly normal and acted normal and did not have a flashing neon sign over their head "WARNING- PSYCOPATH!"

    Horrific experience for that kid. And to go to school the next day. He was probably a walking case of shock. Poor kid.

    I see what you mean now.

    With DNA testing they should be able to be certain beyond a doubt they have the right guy. With that done is this guy redeemable to keep alive?

    Personaly I don't think we should even bother feeding him.

    The hammer is the clue to the motive. If you are really good with a hammer, chances are you haven't been able to find work since 2008. He may have also been contracting which negates any unemployment insurance checks.

    That's the kind of thing that sometimes can push someone with no priors to a reign of terror. He decided that he had nothing to lose and everything to gain from living in the prison. With rape and murder to his cred, other inmates would leave him alone.

    It's a terribly sad story that happens only rarely, but one time is too many. Not everyone contemplating suicide decides to kill themselves. Many of the mass shootings that occur are done by suicidal people.

    I am stunned by this. And pretty horrified by it. Not just the story, but the comments on here. Really going to question the kids? Unless you have been a 9 year old who has watched their family get brutally beaten to death by a hammer then you dont get to judge their actions. What the **** is wrong with you?
