The Murders of Teen's family by, Nehemiah Griego the son, in NM. What do you think our Courts should do with him?
This is another one of those cases, that really has me asking myself, a lot of questions. I was wondering what others thought about this case. Was it Mental Illness? What do we do with all these young kids that kill, mostly kill their families? Should they be tried as an adult? Here's some of the things that I just don't understand.
1. The Uncle says the parents wouldn't allow him to play any violent video games. Yet, I don't think that is the case or that parents are very careful these days with what movies they watch, video games they play. As matter of fact, if I happen to be seeing a rated R movie, I see A LOT of young kids in there. Sad. Do you feel kids watching or playing violent movies or video games, can contribute to kids & violence?
2. The teen planned on going to Wal-Mart to open fire on shoppers & have a shoot-out with the police. What possesses anyone, yet alone a child to do this? He's dad is a Pastor, the teen was home-schooled & very active in Church. What happen to this teen? I just don't understand this. How can he kill his parents, & especially kill his siblings like that?
3. The Uncle says that they believe differently about guns then a lot of Americans. Since, the father was gone a lot, he taught his 15 yr how to shot a gun. There were a lot of weapons, loaded inside the house & NOT locked up. Why? WHY would anyone do that? The dad even had a AR-15 Assault Rifle. umm People that knew this teen said he was quite & courteous.
4. I'm not sure if this boy should be tried as an adult. Be put into the system with other 'adult' criminals. But, with what this teen did, how can he ever be safe in society again? I don't feel he should be in the prison system. He should be locked away & be given a chance to have all the resources available. But, I don't believe he should be out anytime soon. What do you think?
Why do you think we are having SO many of our young people doing such horrible crimes? What do you think we as a society can do to help with this problem? I know No. 1 PARENTS need to start being better parents.
