"Who would think an 8-year-old kid could kill two adults?" said St. Johns Police Chief Roy Melnick Friday.

I am surprised at his apparent surprise.
Guns and kids are not a good mix. (Especially, in recent weeks, 8 year old boys.)
What to do?
Well, Arizona police booked this kid on a charge of first degree murder, but he is the ripe old age of 12.
It seems to me that he has to stand trial, but I am not sure he truly understands the enormity of his crime, let alone the personal consequences.
