    What a tragic cycle of violence and despair. I feel so bad for that older brother... I wonder if he didn't get all the support he needed to recover.

    Very sad indeed.

    Eric's body dropped 14 stories. Derrick would later testify that he ran down all 14 flights of stairs. He believed, he said, that he might be able to get to the bottom in time to catch his brother.
    That paragraph broke my heart.

    WOW!

    It's something more than just environment though... because a lot of these kids don't turn out to be murders at 10 and 11 yrs old

    Scary they are out of prison walking around...

    Oh, I remember when this happened. Being completely shocked that this would happen. How could two children be capable of doing this to another child? Bless his poor family. Heartbreaking to read that his brother ran down the stairs to try to catch him.

    This story was so sad! I can imagine the guilt he must have felt and the worst part is how it has affected him in the long run

    Heartbreaking. I can't imagine the damage that was done to Derrick's psyche. God help him.
