Now she won't get to wear anything that's "cute" until she's an old lady.

It sounds like her boyfriend dumped that girl who got pregnant, and she killed the baby in an effort to get him back.

^I feel like I'd need to know more before completely condemning them. (1) Not many unarmed people are going to take on a knife-wielding attacker [I feel like I'd try to do something, but I don't know, it's never come up, thankfully]; (2) the video people might be the ones that ensure a conviction.

Now, if it becomes clear (the article didn't seem that detailed) that nobody called for help or said anything and just stood there taping him for their own amusement, then, yeah, that's despicable.

Not sure what to think of that one, as 9 years old is awfully young to be charged with murder, but I also don't think that it should just be ignored if they DID intentionally kill the family.

But I DO think the instance, mentioned later in the article, of a 10-year-old being arrested for aggravated assault after throwing a ball at another kid's face during a dodgeball game is more than a little ridiculous.

^Yeah, more details would be needed to know how responsible he was.

I agree that this is outrageous. Whether prosecutors claim you're old enough or not to be responsible for your actions depends entirely on which designation will result in the harshest punishment for the person who's being charged.

Wow. The guy stole a shirt and a couple of belts, and police thought that was an appropriate level of force to use to apprehend him? Destroying the house of people unrelated to the crime because he happened to hole up there when fleeing?

That story is horrifying. Not that the cops did it, but that the courts backed up that the city isn't responsible to pay for the damages.
