In Pa., a 13 yr old girl, abused and living in squalor, shot her father in the face. The girl had been quoted as telling a neighbor she killed her father because she "couldn't take it anymore." She was charged as an adult. I have so much trouble understanding the logic of that. And although murder seems extreme, if she was willing to kill her caregiver as the only way to find relief from abuse, I have great sympathy for her.
I'm just thinking, perhaps she is glad to wake up safe in jail. No rape, no beatings, no whatever it was that drove her to shoot him.
