    Boy, 11, charged with manslaughter in shooting death of 3-year-old
    [​IMG]
    DETROIT - An 11-year-old boy has been charged with manslaughter in the shooting death of a 3-year-old boy at a home on Detroit's east side.

    This, despite the fact that police are calling it an accidental shooting, reported CBS Detroit.

    Prosecutors say the boy is charged with manslaughter -- death by weapon aimed with intent but without malice, and using a firearm during a felony. According to the sation, they say the older boy took a handgun from a bedroom closet at his father's home Monday and tossed it from a window into the backyard.

    Later, he reportedly retrieved the gun and climbed into a car parked in the yard. The 3-year-old got into the car and was shot once in the face, police said.

    Authorities told CBS Detroit the boys had been "playing with" the gun. Exactly who was supposed to be watching the boys is unclear.

    "I cannot remember a time where we have charged someone so young with taking a life. Very unfortunately and very tragically, the alleged facts in this case demanded it," Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said in a statement. "The charged respondent here will remain in the Juvenile system, but the case remains under investigation..."

    Police said Wednesday they were trying to determine if the boys are related.

    I'd say "I learned it from watching you dad!" but c'mon, let's get real.

    The media loves putting news like this center stage, but as far as showing a woman's bare breast on TV, like just about every other country on the planet does, forget it.

    That corrupts our young.

    What the fuck is wrong with this picture?

    This actually makes me sick.... the story itself, and how we handle it in the media.

    Oh, and by the way, whoever owned that gun and whoever the adult responsible is for this child is really the one that should by sentenced.

    Fucking irresponsible assholes.

    Horrible, completely preventable tragedy. A properly secured gun is incapable of harming anyone. My Glock 19 and Mini-14 are both stored in locked, rigid and reinforced cases - when kids come over, I also move those locked cases to a place not possible to reach by the little ones. There is no excuse for this type of tragedy to occur.

    That's why people have gun safes. If you can hide it, a kid can find it. It wasn't the kids fault. Another example of bad parenting.

    it's been mentioned already
    but I also would be ok with the man who owned this gun being charged over an 11 year old
    my kid is 11--they still think santa is real--and daddy is some kind of hero or something

    they're retarded

    It's time for mandatory sterilization of the reggies.
    They are clearly NOT sentient beings capable of understanding the consequences of their actions.

    It may be time to Nuke Detroit from orbit.
    It's the only way to be sure.

    True, and children should be taught proper respect for firearms.
    That had been totally forgotten in the anti-gun rhetoric of the left.

    My wife and I plainly tell other family members that our house is not kid safe.
    It's keeps us from having irresponsible family members who refuse to discipline their children come over for family events.

    Most parents are TERRIBLE parents.
    They coddle their children and try and be their friends instead of actually parenting them.
    It's NOT just low-income minorities.
    Actually, it's the white middle-class who are the WORST parents of all.
    That's different from the reggies who are non-existent as parents.

    Don't believe me?
    Check out the behavior of children in ANY retail establishment or restaurant.
    Better yet, watch any white child in the gate area of ANY airport.

    The 3 year old was capped in an American made car.
