It's absolutely terrifying how many young kids now turn to murder. May the mom rest in peace.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"We determined that this was not an accidental shooting or suicide. This was intentional shooting by her 12-year-old son. OSBI is in the process of doing an affidavit and the child is in a juvenile facility," said OSBI Spokesperson Jessica Brown."Pardon Our Noise, It's the Sound of Freedom" USMC New River Air Station, Jacksonville, North Carolina

The mother is sure a pretty woman. It will be interesting to see why this boy would shoot his mother like that. Now we have an 8 yr old, an 11 yr old, and a 12 yr old that have murdered their parents. Pretty scary.

Renfro Case Perplexes Prosecutors
DA trying to figure out how to proceed with the case. Unsure how to proceed with the case. He said his decision on how to prosecute the boy will determine how much time he may serve, if convicted."It's either you stay a child and get out at 18 or you become an adult at age 11 or 12," Gibson said. The family's pastor said the 12-year-old has a mental disability.
It seems like we are hearing of a lot of children 10-13 killing a parent lately. It does pose the question of how to punish these children. Juvenille detention until 18 doesn't seem harsh enough and adult prison too harsh. I think either punishment will just create a violent adult. Is it even possible to rehabilitate these children or were they just born mean??? Surely they don't fully understand what they have done???
I think we need to come up with better solutions to this emerging problem of violence in our children
