Wow, I don't know what I would do if I had a child like that. My son is incapable of hurting anyone/anything. If there's a spider in the house, he won't let me squash it. I have to capture it and take it to the backyard. IMHO, how you raise your children + what kind of friends they have is crucial.

The uncle states,"He's a beautiful kid" Uh huh, sure he is. He's got the makings of a serial killer....but he's a beautiful kid. His attempt at murder backfired on him and he'll remeber that every time he looks in the mirror. I feel he got what he had coming to him. End of story.

My first reaction is to wonder how badly that child has been abused.

i have a nephew like that he threatens to do things if he doesnt get what he wants he broke a brand new flatscreen tv because he was grounded on his birthday 2 years ago. his parents are finally getting the idea that hitting him works and its showing in his behavior hes not as agressive but still packs a attitude.

It seems to me that destructive tantrums aren't really in the same category as revenge murder.
