13 year old boy shot to death in front of his mother...

I'm not quite sure where to put this, so if it needs moved mods feel free to do so.

Darius Simmons was by all accounts a good kid. The fun loving 6th grader was simply moving a garbage can in front of his home when his neighbor, 75 year old John Henry Spooner confronted him with a shotgun and accused him of stealing from his home. Darius, who was in school the time of the robbery, denied being involved with the theft. John Henry Spooner then proceed to shoot Darius in his chest, while he had his hands raise showing Spooner he was unarmed. His mom, who was watching in horror, ran to Darius to see if she could find a pulse, she couldn’t. Darius, 13 years old and unarmed, was murdered in cold blood in front of his mother.

According to Milwaukee Alderman Bob Donovan, he had breakfast with Spooner an hour before the shooting and Spooner told him he suspected Darius of the crime and was upset that the police hadn’t done anything about it. Spooner then told the Alderman, that there were other ways of dealing with these problems. That qualifies as premeditated murder of a 13 year old boy.  To make matters worse, the family only lived next to Spooner for a month.
 
John Henry Spooner was arrested and charged with first-degree intentional homicide. A judge set cash bond of $300,000.

I'm speechless, all I can say is that my heart goes out to the mother. :(

There are a number of ways, though my favourite is simply to take them by surprise. They're just walking down the street, minding their own business when suddenly, WHACK! Penis to the face.

This reminds me of the time an old man in town around here had the jar of coins in his shop go missing and he assumed it must have been "that new nigger boy I hired". Thankfully there was no shotgun involved.

History is full of maniacs, my friend, men and women of intelect, highly perceptive individuals, who's brilliant minds know neither restraint nor taboo. Such notions are the devils we must slay for the edification of pony-kind. Even if said edification means violating the rules of decency, society, and rightousness itself.

There are no words that can describe the feelings I am experiencing about this issue.

I hope that man never sees the light of day again.

The perpetrator may not even live the see his sentencing as he has a terminal cancer.

Too late. This broke a few days ago and they were all hailing the guy as a hero for killing a "thug". Because any black male body to them are "thugs".
That may be the single gayest thing I have ever read on this board. Or the old one. ;)
