Surprised? I was.
The story appeared in one of the news sites I read everyday to keep abreast current events so I could have a topic to discuss with my students.
Although the boy still remains innocent until proved guilty after trial, I have a proposition that the accusation is true.
I don't know who to blame if it is indeed true or if there's somebody responsible for it.
Is it the boy's father who spanked his son because he did not make his homework?
Is it the media - television shows and movies that present violent themes that make very young children aggressive?
Is it the gaming consoles that allow children to play with guns, shot their enemies and kill another character like it's just an ordinary thing to do?
Is it the boy's parents because they were not able to watch his behavior closely?
In the Christian religion, in was prophesied in the Bible that in the last days children will turn to kill they're parents, brother will fight against brother. The list goes on but I am too sleepy to check.
Maybe, indeed we are. We're on the last days and evil has gained a foothold even on our young ones.
I am alarmed. Are you?
