    Default Fifth-graders' murder plot thwarted: Boys had list of kill targets

    http://www.examiner.com/article/fift...f-kill-targets

    A fifth-graders' murder plot put together by two young boys was thwarted Thursday when another student at the school involved alerted a school employee. The incident happened at the Fort Colville Elementary School in Colville, Wash., and CNN shared the latest details on Feb. 14.

    The two boys, ages 10 and 11, had a stolen semi-automatic gun, an ammunition clip and a knife to use in their plan. They are talking to authorities, and they say there was one girl in particular they were after though there were six more students they wanted to kill. The fifth-graders' murder plot entailed planning to get the girl off-campus alone. The older boy then would stab her with the 3.25-inch knife while the younger boy would use the .45-caliber Remington 1911 handgun to keep away responders. They share that the younger boy dated the girl for a while, and the older boy felt she had been picking on him.

    The boys took the knife and gun to school, and they had promised another student $80 to keep the fifth-graders' murder plot a secret. The students planned to kill the other children by luring them away from school one-by-one as well. As the boys were being taken to the courthouse, the older boy was allegedly overheard telling the younger boy that he was going to kill the person who told authorities about the weapons. He allegedly said, I don't care; when I get out of jail I'm going to come back and kill them. Sources indicate the handgun was taken from an older brother's room, though that brother is also a juvenile. The fifth-graders' murder plot had apparently been in development for some time.

    Luckily in this case nobody was hurt, thanks to one student who chose to do the right thing. The story is certainly chilling, however, when one thinks of just what could have happened here. Washington laws are that children between 8 and 12 years of age are presumed to not have a capacity to commit a crime, a prosecutor told CNN. The boys will have a hearing where the prosecutors hope they can be put under juvenile court jurisdiction. From there, people will need to stay tuned to see what comes next in this case of the fifth-graders' murder plot incident.
    I don't know what to say...

    Kids of 10 don't have the "capacity to commit a crime?"

    I, for one, knew exactly what I was doing at age 10. Sounds to me like these boys did too - after all, they had formulated an entire plan in what sounds like a thoroughly meticulous fashion.

    I think we can safely assume that they had MORE than just the "capacity to commit a crime".

    Good Lord, a ten year old having a girlfriend? Stealing a gun and a knife?

    When I was 10 the biggest issue I had was when I took a baseball to the nuts when I was playing Little League.

    Kids these days... What are the parents doing?!
