Thumbs down Don't need a firearm to commit mass murder...

CHICAGO (AP) ? A 9-year-old child accused of causing a mobile home fire that killed three children and two adults in central Illinois has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder.

No child this young has been accused in a mass killing since at least 2006.

Woodford County Coroner Tim Ruestman said the fire was started intentionally.

"It was a heavy decision," Minger said. "It's a tragedy, but at the end of the day, it's charging a very young person with one of the most serious crimes we have. But I just think it needs to be done at this point, for finality." Me too!

A major challenge for prosecutors will be trying to prove the child formed an intent to kill in advance, which is required in first-degree murder case.

"Nine-year-olds don't know that Santa Claus doesn't exist. They don't know people die and don't come back to life." At 9 I knew there was no Santa and knew dead is dead!

Clark spoke to The Associated Press Tuesday by phone from New York, where she was attending the official release of a United Nations report on the prosecution of children. It recommends that children under 14 should never be prosecuted, no matter the crime.

Intentionally started a fire that killed 5 people and should receive no punishment? Nope.
