As I mentioned in the OP and another comment, there were 2 previous instances of him trying to harm the 4 yr old. One involved a bow and arrow, the
other a kitchen knife. So yea, hes a sick little bastard.
No empathy=sociopath. It appears the older brother had it in for his younger brother for quite some time.
I know we, especially parents, don't want to believe there are sick little kids running around. We can accept it when they are adults and we read
about the senseless cruel things they do. But we want to forget those adults came from being sick kids to start with.
Being born with the lack to empathize with the feelings of others. Not being able to feel remorse for actions, and acting out in cruel vicious ways is
a sickness. His parents already had been warned multiple times he had serious issues, especially with his hatred for his younger brother.
In light of those previous warnings, they should have never had a gun in the house. I am a gun owner, a responsible gun owner, and I feel this way.
They should have known the risk involved of having a lethal weapon in the home. It could have been stored anyplace not accessible to a clever 9 year
The only one I truly feel sorry for here, is the young child who got murdered. And there is no doubt in my mind, that was the intention of the older
brother. To kill his sibling once and for all.
