|If the boy denies it then it just another case of an over zealous prosecutor rail reading the weak. The fact the was no eye witness and the boy denies it and the prosecutor can't prove the intent that required to convict on murder, I think this is sad. |
I know one thing. Come the next election this prosecutor needs to be voted out of office. This is just one of many out-of-bounds efforts that office has taken and the good ole boy system has just kept it going.
If the boy didn't confess and their was no eye witness then what could someone make up that any judge could allow this to go any further.
The reason a prosecutor is elected is to insure the community that someone with the same civic discernment for humanity will prosecute those who have broken the laws the community has established. When a prosecutor steps outside the intended realms of humanity and create things that they think they can convince a jury of even though the is no real proof but just that it's plausible and just counting on a hate filled vindictive citizenry, who just might feel like hanging someone today, to be seated.
Regardless of how this turns out we have a situation in this county that must be corrected at the polls this next election. Until then every parent and child in this county should be scared to death that any accident may happen at home where someone gets hurt. With a tyrannical judicial system that will automatically make an effort to hang the family member (the weaker the better) we are only a fall of a ladder away from prison or the death penalty. Because in this county you are guilty until you prove (if given a chance) innocent.
We need to be in constant prayer for this boy and his family. When accidents become crimes we discover that all the patriotism and love of a clump of dirt was all in vain just like Jesus explained. We can only depend on Christ. He said if we forsake the world and followed -Him only -He would provide all we need. Seek ye first the Kingdom and all things will be added. But for those who seeks the government or some other source for their needs and protection first, they will only get what they ask for. Just in case someone is going to say we should trust the justice system on this.
We need to be on our knees asking for the only one that can be trusted to protect this boy and slow down an out of control prosecutors office. Let investigate first then charge people, huh ?

|I understand having an opinion on whether or not this young lad is guilty or not. Like the Casey Anthony fiasco, there are probably divergent views. That is all well and good because we aren't privy to all of the facts, and at this stage of the investigation, I doubt that the investigators have all of the facts.|
Our criminal justice system isn't guided by Biblical principles. We can discuss whether it should or not and how that would change the way it operates, but just take this one scenario. You commit a crime. You know you did it. You may or may not feel justified in doing it, but nevertheless, you know you committed a crime. The evidence, however isn't a slam dunk. Your attorney says there is a decent chance you won't be convicted. How do you plead? Guilty or non-guilty? Do you step up and tell the truth or do you lie and say "I am not guilty?" I have first-hand experience with this because I visit men in jail, and I always ask the question, "did you do it?" The answer is, with just a very few exceptions, "yes", usually followed by "but". My counsel is always, tell the truth. How could I counsel otherwise? Do they heed my counsel? Sometimes, but in others, they cannot see the benefits of spending time in prison if they can lie and get out of it. In the reality of today, people will commit the sin of a lie to escape the just penalty for another sin, and often that is encouraged by family and defense attorneys.
We can respectfully disagree on whether officials act competently. I am troubled by the opinions here that elected judicial officials pander to "a hate filled vindictive citizenry" and suggest that Mr. character is troublesome in so many ways and not consistent with Biblical truth. I suggest reading Matthew 7: 1-5.

|Liberty, you are an idiot! The prosecutor is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't. How would you handle this situation? Where should this boy be right now? Home with his negligent parents? In foster care? With family who stood by and watched the neglect? The boy needs help and will need help for a long time. Tragically, a little boy is dead and another has altered the course of his life regardless of how this turns out in the courts. I'm glad you think you have all the answers to situations that have no right answer...|

|Voice, You have no clue what you're talking about and have made many assumptions that are fiction. I'm closer to this than you may know and let me tell you acting like a disrespectful child and calling names at people will get you no respect on here. Now, focus on my position, INVESTIGATE FIRST BEFORE CHARGING|
I can tell you that the only thing they have on this little boy is an accident that the prosecutor is making a murder case out of.

|They sure were quick to charge this child with murder but are slow with the charges of neglect for the parents. Dont get me wrong -- I feel terribly for this mother who has lost her child and I am quite sure she is regretting some of her actions, but she holds some of the responsibility.|
