    I don't think justice will be served by putting the kid in jail.
    Discharging a firearm into a target of which you have made no positive identifiaction is a crime. Doing so into the head of a person if that person dies is manslaughter. This definitely deserves prison time. Not the death penalty but absolutely deserves prison.

    It depends on who one identifies with as to how we see it and what conclusion would best fit for each of us. But, put yourself in the position of having to address each family as to the decision you have made in this case with the given facts.

    What would one say to the family of the deceased? The person shot was somebody’s daughter, probably a wife, and maybe even a mother. What could be said that would make the family understand justice - that the kid just made an honest mistake?

    Would there be a problem in telling the kid and his family why he would be in jail until he was 21?

    What if the person shot was a friend, a spouse, ones child, what decision should be made then?

    If this was truely an accident jail time might be warranted. Would have to know all the facts. I would give them the same time as they would have got had the run a stop sign and killed someone. To me it is no different.
