Title pretty much sums it up. An eight year old boy intentionally (as concluded by police) shot and killed his elderly caregiver in the back of the
head. At first, police believed it was an accident, however they later determined that the boy had done it intentionally right after playing the video
game Grand theft auto. So I guess my question to you ATS, why would the police not charge him? Was it because of his age? Shouldnt they at least
charge him with something, anything?
In my opinion, this is a tragic incident indeed, but should this boys age and the fact that he was subjected to a violent video game give him an
excuse for doing this? I mean, there must be some kind of punishment right? Tell me I am being to hard on the lil guy, and I am crazy please! Oh wait,
here is the official reason why:
However, authorities say they are unable to charge the boy with a crime because of a Louisiana law that protects
children from criminal responsibility.
Excuse me?!? Does this mean children under the age of 18 are immune to criminal charges, and are free to kill at will in Louisiana? I may be
overreacting but I have NEVER heard of this type of criminal immunity before!!!
