You're right. A younger person should never "blend" by engaging in such heinous, adult acts. But, life being what it is, some of them opt to do just that, to attempt the murder of innocents. They know damned well it's wrong, and I'm sure many of them don't appreciate just how ugly the ramifications can be and how far the extent of the destruction they bring on. Well ... let 'em learn.

No cheers, here. Just the simple recognition that the attempted murderer's age has little to do with the proper response to such acts of crime and terror.
I try to avoid the search for a "silver lining" in an event like this because it's a coping mechanism that can wander into cheers for killing a kid.
