"An 11-month-old boy was fatally beaten at a home day center, and
authorities have charged a 9-year-old boy also attending the day care with the
death and the center's owner with putting the child in harm's way. Authorities
said the older boy repeatedly hit Tahir Francis in the head a week ago, causing
skull fractures. Tahir was taken to a hospital and died about six hours later
while undergoing surgery."
I don't know how a 9-year-old boy knows that he can kill, and even less what would make him want to kill. This is all probably a very sad mistake. The people who should be looked at are the parents and the adults at the day care.
