She was a severe alcoholic & beat him regularly (neighbors witnessed).
The police & CPS were involved...they did nothing.
He snapped & murdered her..
He's in custody now..
Do you think he should go to prison for the rest of his life considering the life he lived?

Depends, was she in the middle of attacking him when he shot her? There are other ways of getting out of a terrible situation like that. I feel awful for the boy :o(

attap5, that IS always true. There is always someone you can turn to. I'm sure he had family who would have helped out. He should have made it known to school, CPS, the cops, etc. DAILY if nobody was doing anything about it. My upbringing was far from peachy but I would never kill my abuser. I understand that not everyone has the same self-control that I do, but it is NOT ok to kill just because someone is beating you. If your husband got in a fist fight and the other guy shot him, would you think that was fair? You can't use excessive force to defend yourself. I don't know enough of the story to have a definite decision, BUT based on what i do know, he was definitely wrong to shoot and kill his mother.
