    What the world is Changing to ? A 13year old killed 6years old ? The influence of our social vices, through firms and unethical up bringing.
    Few weeks ago a girl of 13year old shoot her training in USA. The trainer is coaching her on how to use AK47 at 13years old ??? She shoot him at close range, killing him instantly. The shocking story is that her parents brought her to learn how to kill at 13years ! Now they have succeeded because her first victim is her trainer of wickedness !
    The parents of this suspect should be arrested for improper upbringing !!

      I wonder ooo, what kind of society are we turning to. 13 yr old boy kill 6 yr old boy? It’s quite unbelievable. But point of correction, that US teen that killed her instructor was as a result of pure mistake and unintentional, the gun overpowered her because its an auto rifle, and unfortunately the instructor get in the way. Whereas this incident is intentional. So they are two different stories entirely.

        What is the difference ? We are talking about improper up bringing. Why should a child of 13years old be taught on how to use one of the sophisticated killing machine in the world, the renowned AK47 ? What is the motive of the parents ? What future do they want such child to have? At her age, 13 there is what we call trial of an error-which she may do on others after the training. This is why we have children are becoming monsters, train by their parents. U.S always have the stories of school shooting by under age children due to bad parental orientation. You see the difference because you are blinded with slavery of consciousness, you see no wrong with Americans and cannot do justice to them.
