Wow, the gun laws in America need to be seriously rethought. Get them out of suburban homes and maybe some of these tragedies can be prevented! As for the boy, if he did do it, he's certainly old enough to be aware of what he was doing. I remember being 11 or 12 and knowing the difference between right and wrong, I`m betting he knows it too.

I say try him as an adult, tell him he's going to jail for the rest of his life, scare the finger-licking drat out of him, then let him out in a few years. Just send him to a prison where he`s not gonna get raped, and he should buck up just fine. Maybe a little counselling afterwards, some therapy during, oh yeah.

The kid is a result of bad parenting and negligence, not given proper guidance, and unable to control emotions and judgement, or understand morality.

The court of law putting a 12 year old on trial as an adult is irresponsible. I know there are still gray areas in 100 year old judicial systems but this is insane.

I say the parent should be responsible for the child's offence. They should be punished together.

And I agree that removing guns would reduce murders. And it would make the intent to kill alot clearer. You can impulsively/accidentally shoot a person to death, but it takes intent and fearlessness to stab a person to death. The idea is to be able to spot the difference between accidental and intentional.

There also seems cause to make a case for neglegance. wtf is a 12 yr old doing with a shotgun?! this should also soften the sentencing of the lil shyte.

premeditated? maybe, but prove it. seems more like an act of pasion to me. try him as an adult, but you will find that he couldn't even try to hide cover up the scene. manslaughter at the most. kid will be MAX 22-27 by the time he is released in such a case.
