Plus why waste taxpayers' money incarcerating him when he isnt of immediate threat to others; and there is no element of rehabilitation. Punishment isn't a good enough reason in this case...

With respect for all american people here, but this can happen only in USA.... Nobody here in Italy think to give a UZI to a 8 y.o. children, but in United States, the land of opportunity (to death) anyone can find a weapon everywhere...also in a fair open to minor....

8 years old. That is 4th grade. I wouldnt let my child play a video game with shooting in it at that age much less hold a real gun. Maybe i am overprotective as a parent. I got nervous when my kids ( 10 and 12) asked to carve a pumpkin this year. To let them shoot an uzi at one?? No, I simply cannot fathom that.
What business did an 8-year-old have shooting an Uzi?
Was he exercising his constitutional right?
