Missouri 12-Year-old Dead Mishandling a Gun - No Arrests

Local news reports
A 12-year-old child died Saturday after suffering a gunshot wound while mishandling a handgun in Breckenridge, Mo., Friday evening, deputies said.

Caldwell County deputies said they were called to a home on West Maple Street about 8:45 p.m. and found the injured child.

The victim was flown to a Kansas City-area hospital and was pronounced dead there.
I know, I know, the investigation is ongoing. But, for me that's not good enough.  It should not take too long to determine whose gun it was or who the responsible adult was.  That person should be arrested immediately just like the author of a DWI or a murder.

What's your opinion?  Please leave a comment.

  1. I prefer to live in a society where the police take their time to do the job right, instead of arresting people willy-nilly.
