    Durham NC police charge two teens, 12-year-old with murder

    I have been following this from when it was first reported and am still absolutely speechless. I cannot understand what would prompt kids that young to commit murder.

    Durham, N.C. — Durham police have charged two teens and a 12-year-old girl with murder after the trio allegedly carjacked and killed a 35-year-old man on Firth Road in northern Durham on Friday night.

    The 12-year-old girl accidentally shot herself in the stomach and leg while inside the victim's SUV, police said. She was treated and released from a local hospital, then placed in a Durham County juvenile facility. Police did not release her name but said she is from Raleigh.

    Police say the 12-year-old girl, a 14-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy asked Johnny Danilo Villatoro, of Durham, for a ride shortly before 7 p.m. Friday night.

    Mind you that I have no first hand knowledge, but I would bet there was a video game with the same endeavor or that they were "taught" this behavior,,,,,,,I, nor my children, would have never dreamed of this behavior.....

    msgt, I've been doing some pondering on this one also. I wonder how many armed citizens would have been able to get past the apparent ages of these kids and deploy lethal force in time to stop the attack. I wonder if this factor had anything to do with the outcome of this very situation.

    We all talk with a swagger when it's here in black and white with the ability to backspace if we make a mistake but I truly feel that if I encountered kids that age the OODA loop may have to run a few extra cycles before I could stop a threat like that.

    This is one that while not one for open forum scenario playing at least one to run through your own mind just to get a grasp on it.

    And I'm sure that there was never a horse thief or stagecoach robber who was under 18.

    BEC's?????

    Guy was a dummy, unless they promised him, or he thought the girls were older , and that there may have been a little "something in it" for him.
    Still, you must assess every situation that presents itself, and then decide what would be an acceptable risk.

    He chose unwisely in this instance.

    Or, the guy was a concerned father with children and babies of his own at home who thought he was doing the right thing taking some kids home. I see no evidence of any wrong doing or any of the dispicable things, bordering on being a pedafile, that you hint at in your post. It's most likely the guy is exactly what he appears, an innocent victim of kids with no morals or sense of right and wrong at all.

    He's unable to defend himself because he's a murder victim. He's innocent until proven guilty, at least in my eyes.
