    Why? Poor little kid going to have a hard time the rest of his life probably.Kids are suppose to be carefree, enjoy life. Then some body does something like this to cause them mental stress.This causes them to act out, not realizing this is knowledge way beyond their years. It's so wrong. The person that done this needs mental counseling.
