FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — It's a crime that police officers in a small eastern Arizona community can hardly fathom yet have to deal with: an 8-year-old charged in the fatal shootings of his father and another man.

"Who would think an 8-year-old kid could kill two adults?" said St. Johns Police Chief Roy Melnick Friday.

There is no way a 8 year old can commit murder. I surmise that Pa and man used the belt one too many times and the son decided he had enough this time.

I do not think that any civilized country on this earth would prosecute an 8 year old for murder. What would be the point? I cannot imagine a real evil 8 year old, can you? (Well, maybe in the "Problem child" movies. )

In the Middle Ages, there were cases of young children being severely punished or even hanged for various offenses, but that practice was quickly discontinued.
Under Hitler's reign, a 14 year old could be legally executed. And even this country has electrocuted a 14 year old black boy for murder in the 1940's.

That would certainly not be the case with a .300 Weatherby Magnum.

When I first fired that rifle it left an ugly bruise in my shoulder and I was holding it really firmly. I watched the bullet hit a large rear tractor tire/wheel lying on the ground about 100 yards away and saw the whole thing being moved over at least 6 inches.

I would be amused to see how real gun nuts would spin this one. The problem of course would be that the father and his dead friend did not carry two concealed firearms each at all times so they could blow the wicked little shit away before he had a chance to pull the trigger.

Now this is the kind of shit that happens when daddy lets the kid play Grand Theft Auto and has a gun in the house. No guns in my household, EVER!. The temptation to use it on my wife would just be overwhelming.

Minister arrested after 90 killed in Haiti school collapse

November 9, 2008 - 1:28PM
Source: ABC

The owner and minister of the Haiti school church which collapsed killing more than 90 children and teachers has been arrested.

The death toll rose above 90 after rescue workers uncovered a room with another 21 dead, many of them children, officials said.

Haiti President Rene Preval said the church school had been built with hardly any structural steel or cement to hold its concrete blocks together. Debris crushed neighbouring residences in the Nerettes community.

The owner of the school and church, Protestant minister Fortin Augustin, was arrested.

"He told me he built the building all by himself. He said he didn't need an engineer because he had good knowledge of construction," said prosecutor Joseph Manes Louis, adding that Augustin stated he had once worked on construction sites as a foreman.

Mr Preval, who was at the scene on Saturday, said searchers dropped water and biscuits through gaps in the rubble overnight to children and focused their efforts on reaching them.

"Last night we were sure there were still seven children alive. We got one of them but we have lost all signs of the other six being alive," Mr Preval said.

"Some say they might be sleeping. Others believe they have died."

Civil protection service head Alta Jean-Baptiste said there were 84 people confirmed dead and 150 injured as of noon. Another civil protection official, Michel Joseph Jr., said he had seen eight more bodies, bringing the count to 92.

"We haven't been able to get them out yet," said civil protection official Michel Joseph Jr, as rescue workers arrived from the United States and the French Caribbean island of Martinique to help the ill-equipped and impoverished country, and UN peacekeepers posted there search for survivors.

Officials said 700 children were enrolled at the three-story La Promesse school, but it was not known how many were in the building when it caved in on Friday while class was in session.

The disaster struck as the poorest country in the Americas struggled to recover from four tropical storms and hurricanes that killed more than 800 people and destroyed 60 per cent of its crops in August and September.

Rescuers worked frantically at the school site on the outskirts of Port-of Prince, the Haitian capital, bringing in a crane to lift blocks of concrete.

Firefighters from Virginia and rescue workers from Martinique brought sniffer dogs. The search was set to continue for a second night.

Crowds of screaming and crying parents searched for their children in the ruins, and roads around the school were so jammed with people that some rescuers had to be brought in by helicopter.

A rescue worker said the dead included an entire philosophy class with the exception of one girl who was alive because she had asked for permission to leave to use the bathroom just before the collapse.

"It is a tragedy, particularly when it involves children," UN mission chief Hedi Annabi said. "I share their sorrow and express my profound sympathy to the relatives of the victims."
