Watching DVDs, playing video games, and feeling fine after killing his folks? Charge him as an adult!
No! The boy probably has mental issues. Try him as a juvenile!

14-year-old John Caudle shot his mother, Joanne Rinebarge, dead with a .22 caliber pistol because he didn't want to take out the trash or clean his room. Caudle told investigators that he hid in the laundry room until his stepfather, Tracy walked by and shot him dead too.

After shooting his parents, John Caudle spent his evening watching movies and playing on the computer. Caudle drove his stepfather's truck to school and seemed completely "happy".

    making excuses for the guilty is a scourge on this country.. I am tired of liberal crap. Try him as an adult and lock his ass away.

    this is so sad...but he deserves to be charged as an adult. If he should have mental isures, then they should be putting him away into an insitution.

    He definitely should be tried as a juvenile. He doesn't seem like he is mentally healthy in the slightest. Plus he is 14 and if they sent him to some penitentiary at this age, justice would not be served. He would just be taken advantage of by any and everyone around him. A psych ward or mental institution should have him for a number of years, indefinitely, until they deem him to not be a danger to himself or anyone around him again.

    Should be thrown in a mental asylum! He is not old enough, nor obviously mature enough to be tried as an adult, and trying him as a juvenile will result in a shorter, lighter sentence, and in light of the way he acted after doing so, there is either more to this story or the kid has serious issues that can't be fixed by a jail sentence!

    Uhm.

    Even if he does have mental issues, he should probably be locked away, and he should probably be getting help while he is locked away.

    should go through some psychiatric treatment then be reevauluated. with all of the violence that influences youth they think they can solve a problem or get rid of the "bad guys" that easily.
  • Kristina 2010/01/27 20:14:13

    Charge him however you want. Either way, he deserves anything he gets. This case is just another warning about violence in kids' DVDs/Video Games. With many games, kids sit down, shoot a hundred people in a couple hours, then go eat dinner. Could the kid figure out the difference?
  • Mel Kristina 2010/01/29 05:08:59
    Mel
    the child could figure out the differance if his parents taught him right from wrong and if the game has that much violence it is rated and parents shouldn't by it you are just looking for someone to BLAME.....if you would like to blame someone you don't blame music or games you blame the person in the mirror

    This boy must be mentally disturbed and not have realized the severity that his mom and step dad are gone forever.
    Too much video games and horror movies?

    He should be tried as an adult but I think he has to be 16 , not sure if anyone has been tried as an adult at a younger age.

    ....Isn't right in the head. But neither is the one who didn't lock up there gun with a curios child running around. Just horrible. I feel sorry for them, but dam, c'mon! What is that kid doing with a gun. Let this be a lesson to all of us gun owners. Lock box's. Gun safes. There out there. Own one before the other is my opinion.

    Try him as an adult or not? i dont really know either way, but obviously he is frickin nuts and probably needs to spend his life in a max security mental institute instead of prison.

    i say wtf! it's creepy and mad! charge him as an adult!

    having 'mental issues' is so old already! it doesn't work good for the society. that boy needs some heavy spanking and beating.

    he's 14! double the age of a child who knows what is right from wrong. imagine what he can do once he get over that mental issues whatever, he'll be taking over the world with that goddamn .22 caliber pistol because that boy is a curse. and don't tell me he's a child.

    he didn't act like one.

    but where the hell did he get that pistol??

    that sick little f' should spent the rest of his life behind bars. It's sad that his parents didn't have sense enough to keep their gun put up, but that's another story. I say that punk should rot in prison.

    He's old enough to commit murder and it was premeditated. So yes he needs to be tried as an adult. However this kid needs a serious psych evaluation.

    This boy seriously needs to be evaluated. If he has a mental illness that affects his judgements( and it sounds like he does) then of course try him as a juvinile. And get him into therapy! If not then to hell with that, and needs to tryed as an adult and rot in a jail cell(:
