    The insanity plea will probably work out for him. Doesn't work as often as you'd think from watching TV, though.

    I think he's guilty. I hope they consider all of the circumstances surrounding the shooting and get the kid the help he needs.

    Why? He told his sister he was going to kill him and shot him point blank.

    Now if to say, you think the charges or punishment is harsh..that's different.

    he pleaded insanity but he was ruled "responsible" which is guilty in juvenile terms

    My fault if that was in the article, I had skimmed it.

    I don't know what to say about the "responsible" verdict. Coming from the same country that lets people sue (and they win, is the point) others for spilling hot coffee on their own legs, and lets a group of football players run a train over a drugged out girl without consequence.

    I don't think there's that many ways he could escape doing time. He'll likely do some amount.

    But I agree. He needs help and years of jail, maybe prison, isn't the answer.

    It's in juvenile court though. So it's not like he's being charged as an adult.

    I am surprised its 2nd degree and not 1st. Once he told his sister that he was gonna kill him, that 1st degree. He planned to do it and carried it out. Abused or not, doesn't justify a planned muder. If he had time to plan to kill someone, he had time to plan away out and get help.

    The coffee case was actually reasonable is the sense, that the coffee was proven to be at an unnecessary heat if I remember correctly.

    Don't quote me on that.
