The world is pretty messed up when you have a monkey for a president and a 7 year old beats his sister to death.

This musta been a big 7 year old. I don't know too many that could pick up a 2x4 and swing it.

Oh jeez, that's sad.

Maybe the article doesn't provide enough detail but the story sounds suspicious. The parents don't hear the girl crying?... Ok, maybe they screwed up but the seven year old kid blames others in the house and then confesses to using a 2x4??? How many folks keep a 2x4 laying around inside the house?

Whether or not there's a 2x4 lying around in the house, there's a lot more serious issue here.

When I was seven years old, I understood the concept of hurting other people. I also had a clear understanding that hurting other people was WRONG.

The kid either has a serious chemical imbalance, or there are some serious issues in his upbringing. Both are possible --there have been some children who have been found to have some extreme EI (emotional impairment) pproblems that make it difficult to impossible for them to understand the consequences of their actions once they have lost their temper. A few years back I saw a kid in a situation where he felt cornered (got embarrassed about being asked to sit down and be quiet by a teacher) enough to nearly start throwing punches at a teacher in class.

At the same time, there's plenty of situations where parents no longer raise their kids --the television, XBox, DVD player, or school system now does. In those cases, there isn't the necessary infrastructure to show those children what right and wrong is (or that actions have consequences), and the results can be pretty frightening. In those cases, it's a sad thing that there is no preliminary requirement for becoming a parent, other than being legally old enough to procreate.

Either way, it sounds to me like this kid needs to be in an environment that allows for some serious therapy, or this will become a repetetive cycle of violence. I'd bet this isn't the first time that this child has acted out --just the most shocking.

What happened is very sad and scary.
I don't have time to post a full response at this time, but it is
definitely shocking to say the least.
