As a Mormon I would have thought this child was justly charged with 1st degree murder.https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/9-year-old-charged-with-murder-in-5-illinois-fire-deaths/ar-AAItNBx?ocid=spartandhp
As an ex-Mormon I believe it is heinous to add the insult of charging a child with murder to the injury of fiery deaths.
Their brain hasn't even begun the process of pruning back all the neurons they have as they reach puberty and prune for a decade. Children who commit heinous crimes don't have the dampening down abilities that a mature adult human brain does. We don't like to think about children as capable of these kinds of acts. They are still human beings just immature ones. We would like to wrap childhood into an innocent bubble to be admired as being untainted by "the world."
Mormonism through Joe Smith placed responsibility for human actions at 8. In the state he was murdered in he might be proud of them as they charge this child.
