I just cannot read these stories about children being murdered anymore. I'm overcome with so much emotion. The thought of what it must be like for those poor parents is just too horrific. If I let myself go there, I will start sobbing.

I hope there will be justice in this case, as well as others like it.

Really? He has a hell of a shot for a blind man, then.

I'm pretty sure the article said he confronted the boy and shot him point blank in the chest.

This is a horrible story.

For some reason, I thought the old man caught a glimpse of someone rummaging throught the garbage and shot at him from a distance.

OMG...another Trayvon Martin.

And wth is w/ the "cancer defense?" Yeah, that really absolves him of responsibility...
Yeah, that's what I've been trying to say. He shot a child in cold blood TWICE (and went for a third). There is no excuse.

I can see the dementia excuse. It's the first thing I thought of, even before my first post. It's the reason why we removed all the guns from my inlaws' house when my FIL started accusing imagined people of doing various imagined things in their house.

Exactly! I'm not going to assume that the kid was shot because he was black. No one knows the true heart of the shooter.
However, it is disgusting that an elderly man shot an innocent kid- regardless of anyone's color.
Maybe but I don't need someone to write "I hate black people" in blood over the body to know either. Like the guy dragged to death in Texas, doesn't take a rocket scientist or a God to tell you what was on their hearts!
You can feel however you wish. I am not going to assume anything. I am only referring to this case nothing else. People commit horrible crimes all the time and many times we don't know the real motivation. Regardless of why, this kid is dead and he shouldn't be. That's the real tragedy!

But in order to reduce the incidence of these types of crimes occurring (which for much of this nation's history were an epidemic), we need to understand and address the reasons why they happen.
