    I saw this last night on both Nancy Grace and AC360. This boy didn't have a relative or lawyer present, and they didn't read him his rights.

    They also forgot about the white car that the boy saw when he came home that evening which was in front of his house and left rather quickly.

    I hope these 2 bitches get fired from the force and are gang raped by demons in their dreams.

    I've mentioned this elsewhere but these are such blatant errors that I find it difficult to suggest these officers were simply mistaken in not following very basic procedures that can be found in most western liberal democracies.

    1. You don't interview someone without giving them a caution if you suspect them of having committed an offence.
    2. You don't interview a juvenile without an adult present.
    3. You don't hold out inducements to the suspect to confess.

    Pretty damn basic.

    Due to their negligence, he could end up going home to mom instead of getting the psychiatric help that he needs....that would be horrible i think?

    Cops KNOW BETTER, even I knew a child under 18 can not be interogated without a parent present or relative or his or her own representation of the State....a guardian.

    Yep. I mean, the poor little kid has gone through quite a bit over the past few days......coming home and finding his father and father's room mate shot? Not only is he going to need therapy, but he's also going to need a lot of TLC to get over this.

    And......the way that those two stupid bitches handled the initial interrogation was absolutely wrong. I'd even equate it to those other cops in their zeal to make arrests that repeatedly tasered suspects until they died. I think they did more mental damage to that little dude than him seeing his father and father's friend dead at the house, because the little guy didn't know what happened, he was trying to understand, and was intimidated into confessing. I watched the whole interview on Nancy Grace and was royally pissed.

    What were the dad and his man friend doing when the boy arrived? Was the father committing adultery acts when he arrived, which startled him into homophobic rage and cause him to react by shooting them?

    I wonder if "The First 48" will do this murder case.
