    Judge finds Riverside boy responsible for killing neo-Nazi father

    A Riverside County judge on Monday found a 12-year-old boy guilty of second-degree murder in the shooting and killing of his father, neo-Nazi activist Jeffrey Hall, as he slept on the family’s living room couch.He also was found guilty of a weapons charge, with the judge determining he knew right from wrong.
    The youngster, just 10 years old when he pulled the trigger in May 2011, was charged as a juvenile and can be held in custody only until he is 23.
    A separate hearing will be held to determine whether the boy should be sent to a juvenile detention center run by the state Department of Corrections, sent to an alternative treatment facility or placed on probation.
    Testimony and evidence in the case, which began in October, revolved around the boy's upbringing and a family life steeped in the hatred and violence of the neo-Nazi movement, with psychologists focusing on whether those circumstances altered his capacity to realize that killing his father was wrong.

    So what do you think? I think this no way justifies this kids acts but i dont believe he should be held in custody until he is 23. He was only 10 years old. I believe he should see a psychiatrist, and go through counselling, but should also be at home with his mother. I strongly believe hate only breeds hate and actions like this are consequences of that hate.

    I wasn't in court so I don't have all the facts, but it sounds like a bad ruling. Abusive neo-nazi fathers who get shot by their sons have only themselves to blame. The boy should get a medal and a little counseling.

    Hell, I'd give the kid a medal. One less racist lunatic for the rest of us to worry about.

    Yes, he should have been sent to a psychiatrist whilst also going to a juvenile detention centre to serve some sort of sentance (after all it is murder) for around maybe 2 years max.

    Chances are extremely high that this kid had a really good reason to shoot his dad. At the absolute most, he should be in juvi until he's 18, but I think even that might be too harsh. Kids don't just shoot their neo nazi dads for no reason.

    I'm terrified of the idea of having done something at 10 years old that will ruin my entire life.

    He will no doubt be sent to a for-profit juvenile detention center and will thus be part of providing jobs for guards and profits for prison owners.

    I think he should go to jail. If mom was with dad, mom may not be the best influence either; and somebody who pulls a trigger like that should not be on the streets. It doesn't matter what his dad believed--the kid is a killer and only serving until 23 is a pretty damn good light sentence all on its own.

    Re: Judge finds Riverside boy responsible for killing neo-Nazi father

    It is a classic example of overzealous god complexed prosecutions. If ever there was an example of a case that should been put in the pipeline for an arbitrated mutually agreed upon resolution this is it. Putting a ten year old into the system for more than a decade for any crime is ridiculous. We are subjecting the most emotionally malleable and least emotionally responsible in society to the traumatizing rigors of our terrible juvenile penal system and the mercy of corrections officers. It is a recipe for disaster that we still haven't figured out. In this case in particular the extenuating circumstances are extraordinary and do not seem to have been properly considered.

    But the greatest factor is still that he is ten. He only learned how to freaking read 2 or 3 years ago. It's a travesty, and its a microcosm of what is so perversely wrong with our justice system.
