    He should be charged as an adult. If he is old enough to use a gun to commit a crime, he is old enough to be charged as an adult. I hope he gets more than a slap on the wrist.
    I am sure the start of a long criminal career.

    He knew what he was doing….I am sure he will get the book thrown at him, however, with the wonderful system we have, the kid will be locked up until he is 18, released and his records sealed!
