What do do

I found the url above at the Drudge Report.  It's a story about a murder
plot discovered at a school in Montana.  The intended victim was an 8 year
old girl.  Three boys were arrested for plotting to kill her.  Two of them
were 8 and the other 11.  Another student learned of the plot and told
someone.  A gun was found buried in a sand box.  Also found nearby was some
ammunition for the gun and a knife.

What should be done to kids so young?  Can they be turned around?  If
they're released will they do it again, possibly succeeding?  Should they
be locked up for life?  If not, how long should they spend in jail?

It does seem to me the parents of these boys should be investigated.  They
left the guns where their kids could get at them.  Did the parents make any
attempt to raise these boys with a sense of right and wrong?  One has to
ask this question because so many parents these days pay little attention
to their children.  It's sad, but a lot of parents these days have the
attitude that they don't have to spend a lot of time with their
children.  They treat the kids as if they're not all that important in
their lives.  How many of us know people who are always out doing something
and leave the kids at home unsupervised?

As children grow older, parents can leave them alone for longer periods of
time with no harm done.  However, if the little monsters are plotting to
kill their classmates or building bombs in their bedrooms; it's obvious to
anyone with the IQ of a liberal that there is a lack of parental
involvement in the little monster's life.  The parents are obviously not
spending enough time with them and are not spending enough time trying to
find out what they're up to.
