    Default 10-YO Kills Neo-Nazi Father

    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lano...rney-says.html

    A ten-year-old boy killed his neo-Nazi father by shooting him while the man sat on his living room couch last Sunday.
    The shooting is being labeled as intentional and the boy's attorney shows no intentions of claiming it to be otherwise.

    "According to court records the boy had a history of aggression and violence after his parents went through a bitter divorce, with both Hall and his ex-wife, Leticia Neal of Spokane, Wash., accusing each other of abusing and neglecting the children. Hall was granted full custody of the children."


    "Last year Neal filed for custody of her two children with Hall, the 10-year-old boy and his 9-year-old sister, saying she was concerned about the children’s well-being because of the father’s affiliation with the neo-Nazi group. Hall had opposed the motion, saying that Neal had had no contact with the children for six years."
    It has been reported that the father was asleep as his son killed him.

    Discuss. How should the court rule? He is being charged as a juvenile.

    At that age you don't have the ability to understand the full consequences of your actions the way an adult does. Your brain simply isn't mature enough. The trial itself is therefore fairly pointless, as it's akin to putting a dog on trial for biting someone. Really, nobody younger than 15 belongs in a courtroom. It just makes no sense. If you are that young, you don't review legal precedent to figure out if you can get away with a crime, you just do it without thinking of the consequences, so it won't serve as a deterrent. And repeat offenses is fairly unlikely, as these types of crimes occur due to a lack of the sort of rational thinking adults are capable of, but as you grow up, you develop that ability.

    He should go to therapy for the distress the trial will put him through and then be sent to a foster home.

    Putting him in prison would be ridiculous. That would create a hardened criminal out of someone who has the potential to lead a perfectly normal life. Not only will it give the child contacts with criminal elements he'd never meet otherwise and pick up all sorts of tricks of the trade, prison time stunts emotional growth, so he'd still be just as dangerous when he got out.

    Just because the father was a neo-Nazi doesn't mean that the boy should get any preferential treatment. The fact is, he still murdered another human being.

    He should go to therapy for shooting his father. Not for the stress caused by court, that's just ridiculous.

    There is no inherent trauma in shooting your father as a child, it's just an action like any other, that they probably understand is wrong but not quite the full extent of the ramifications. So virtually all emotional distress is from the adult world reacting to the action.

    While I certainly don't shed any tears over the death of a Neo-Nazi, his death certainly shouldn't go without just punishment, which in this case should be to send the kid to extensive therapy so he doesn't self-destruct and make a total mess out of himself.

    Convicting a child who does not and cannot understand the consequences of his actions is utter nonsense. It accomplishes nothing. Let the kid understand just what it is that he's done and try to serve some measure of remorse for the taking of a human being's life by living his out as best he can. Case closed.

    My thanks to Xey Oiz for the awesome new set.

    If there's one thing film, books, and video games have taught me is that it's completely OK to kill any number of Nazis and you'll never be punished legally for doing so.
    Ehhh, I dunno if I'll stick around. We'll see.

    If anything, due to the fact they look indistinguishable from vagrants and/or street punks they are even more killable-without-consequences.

    To be fair, therapy can help a person mature - not just help them overcome trauma or mental issues. He should have therapy to ensure he can cope with the fact that he killed his father in the future and he can function as a responsible adult in society. The fact is, the boy will become much more self-aware in only a couple of years and will need to have some sort of outlet in therapy if he has any hope of living in sanction.

    And it is this adult world that this boy will have to become a part of someday. He will then have realize what he's done and accept it in a healthy manner. The chances of this positive outcome happening are much greater when a therapist is there to guide the way for the mental struggles to come.
