10 yr old boy repeatedly shot father. What should be done?
    #3076237 - 09/01/04 01:26 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

At 10, I would say children have suffciently developed the capacity for knowing right from wrong. Whether they can adequately weigh all the future consequences however seems unlikely. In a case such as this, assuming there was no abuse on the part of the father, and the boy is convicted of murder, what should be done?

I will add that it's now being reported that the child was on Prozac for depression and anxiety. Would that change your opinion?

Doctor fatally shot by his 10-year-old son
By ROBERT CROWE

A 10-year-old boy fatally shot his father Friday, striking him several times as he sat in the front seat of an SUV to pick up the boy from his mother's home for a weekend visit.

The incident happened about 3:45 p.m. on a cul-de-sac in the 1700 block of Cedar Cove Court, said Sgt. B.E. Williams of the Harris County Sheriff's Department.

A preliminary investigation found that Rick James Lohstroh, 41, was shot by his son, who was sitting in the back seat of the man's Toyota 4-Runner, said Sgt. B.E. Williams of the Harris County Sheriff's Department. The shooting took place outside the home of Lohstroh's ex-wife, where the boy lives with his mother and a 7-year-old sibling.

"We're not certain of anything until we finish our investigation," Williams said. "The information we have at this time is that the 10-year-old did fire the weapon."

The mother and the 7-year-old were inside the house when the shooting occurred, said Williams

Williams said the gun belonged to the boy's mother. After firing shots through the back seat, the boy exited the back of the vehicle and continued to fire at the vehicle.

The man died en route to Memorial Hermann hospital.

Lohstroh was a doctor at the University of Texas Medical Branch.

Precinct 5 constables have reported disturbances at the residence in the past. The man and woman shared custody of the children.

Williams said the mother and the boy were still in the home talking to investigators Friday night.

Neighbors described the family as being quiet and keeping to themselves.

Justin Gray, 17, was walking in the neighborhood when he heard gunshots. "We've had a suicide in this neighborhood once, but never anything like this," Gray said.

Put him to death.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Fucking people drugging their kids with powerful psychoactives deserve to be shot.
We are home to Kip Kinkle, the kid who opened fire in Oregon.In this case and many others the role that Psychotropic drugs has been covered over and ignored.
How many of you read anywhere Kinkle's father had pulled ALL his meds the week before and the kid was going through detox(on his own w/o any counseling) when he blasted the people who put him on the drugs.
Those willing to put a child to death when the lack of proper care of their mental state has precipitated a tragedy,Please do NOT have children!

Obviously, not enough money has gone to head start, public schools, sex education, anti-smoking campaigns, child protective services, WIC programs and the police. The child is a victim of societal oppression and the rage it has created in him by greedy capitalist exploiters who have doomed him to a life without a father, they have not given their fair share to create a leftist heaven on earth which would have prevented such a tragedy... raise taxes!

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

The NRA that sponsored a national initative to have FREE GUN LOCKS given out at police stations? You could walk in, not give them any personal information, and walk out with up to three gun locks, more if you requested them. As a test I went in there and told them I had kids, but no gun locks and I owned 10 guns. They gave me ten locks. The NRA, if anything, is supportive of responsible gun ownership. The NRA gives free (or quite cheap) classs in youth safety, hunter programs and concealed carry programs. What on earth could you possibly have against an educated populace owning firearms?
