It is NOT the gun, it’s the person!
Police in suburban Cincinnati say a 14-year-old boy suspected of killing his infant stepsister by intentionally smothering her is in custody at a juvenile facility.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports a detective wrote in a sworn statement that the teenager said he covered the sleeping infant’s face with a pillow because he heard voices telling him to do that. The newspaper says an arrest slip indicates the boy has a psychiatric disorder.
All homes have pillows, many homes have infants, a good deal of those infants have older siblings. Hell even a good part of those siblings could be declared “mentally ill” depending on where you set the bar for that. Still we don’t read about this every day.
It is the person, not the tool they use to kill.
