Teen arrested in fatal police shooting... just shows you what a 140$ can cause.. illegal guns are every where..
WIRED Science article about the Google Lunar X Prize teams!
I'm bored with this news. What else is on?
Why does the media insist on making whosit from the gifford thing famous?
Where did that kid get $140 in the first place? From the article, it sounds like he stole the money. Why did he buy it in the first place? To do someone harm. And he did. And he'll pay for the rest of his life (if he's not given the death penalty; FL is big on that, especially in cop-killing cases). Well, he's to be tried as an adult. He made choices when he decided to whip out that illegal gun.
As for that freak from AZ, just look at him...he has no remorse at all for his actions...I am not sure about AZ laws, but if he uses the insanity plea, when he's "sane" again, he should be put right back on trial. Sorry. But one should be held accountable. Period.
Any word on these youngsters being on meds? We have a 12 yr. old sitting in jail here for killing his brother and trying to kill his mother. His defense attorney is claiming the kid was under the influence of Paxil(tm), a drug commonly prescribed to children who act-out whatever violence they've been exposed to from the time of conception. Children absorb violence like a sponge, be that domestic violence or otherwise. When what went in comes back out, we drug them. It's like fast-food mentality. We don't care if it's any good for you in the long-run, we just want it now. Even when it comes to our own childrens mental health.
