Everyone has failed this child. He needs therapy, not to spend the rest of his natural LIFE in prison. No 13 yr old should be charged as an adult.

I just watched the documentary on this child. Although he pled guilty, he was in the interrogation room alone rehearsing out loud what he was suppose to say happened. The attorneys believe that he is covering up for his mother. I too believe that his mother killed this precious 2 year old baby.

Call me evil all you want, but even a 13 year old understands the concept of death and murder. In my opinion, if you rob someone of their life against their will, you do not deserve yours, no matter what age.

To me it sounds like this kid has reactive attachment disorder. He would need extreme therapy, but he can be helped. He shouldn't go to prison.

Why not give him the psychological treatment....but also keep him away from society until at least the age of 21.  At least.  Maybe longer.  No way should this kid be walking the street.  But yeah, give him treatment.  That being said, I don't like the language the black guy uses.  He keeps saying "we" failed him, "we" don't care about people.  No dude, "I" have nothing to do with this.  And you can't expect taxpayers to fork-over all their money to cure every wrong in the world.

Why was this damaged kid allowed to be near others in the first place? Sounds like both the mother and the son should have been under intense psychological care in the first place.
