ARTICLE from the Winter 2009 Issue

Too Young To “Draw The Line”?
A News Item To Watch As We Go To Print

An 11-year-old boy is facing adult charges in the shooting death of his father’s pregnant girlfriend. Police say the boy shot the woman, who was eight months pregnant, once at point-blank range in her farmhouse in western Pennsylvania.

The boy, whose name was withheld because he is a juvenile, was charged with one count each of criminal homicide and homicide of an unborn child.

At this point, they don’t believe it was an accident. The weapon was a youth model 20-gauge shotgun, designed for use by children, that belonged to the boy, according to investigators.

[Omission here is glaring: a 20-gauge-shotgun is designed for a child to hunt with - to kill animals!!!].
