    With the child being so young, he will get out at 18 or 21. I don't think there is any way state can hold him beyond that.

    I fully believe some people are born evil. But in this case I am not ready to say that about the perp. There are a lot of things in this situation that when looked at separately aren’t necessarily cause for concern, but when I combine them, it makes me wonder if there was abuse going on in that house. Very sad situation no matter what.

    I'm sure your right. Andrew Golden was also only 11 when he and his 13 year old classmate killed 5 people at their middle school, and Andrew was released on his 21st birthday. He would have been released at 18 but was charged with federal weapons charges so he could be held till 21.

    I respectfully absolutely disagree. Some people are born psychopaths without any moral compass or empathy. No amount of good parenting or therapy will help. You can't make someone born without a conscious suddenly grown one.
