If you can stand to watch this video you will see a young boy who has no explanation for why he shot his parents crying and carrying on. More from the article:A teenager who was sentenced to 20 years in prison for shooting dead both his parents regretted his actions immediately after and said he 'didn't even mean to hurt them'.Alex Crain, now 15, from Naples, Florida, was arrested at his home in December 2010 for the slayings and has never spoken publicly or given any reason as to why he killed them.Now a video has been released of a 14-year-old Crain sitting in the back of a police cruiser, wailing and crying to himself and shouting things like 'I swear I didn't mean to kill them', 'I'm sorry' and 'I didn't mean to hurt them'.Crain's admissions, recorded on a dashboard camera tape, are the first - and only - insights into the former Palmetto Ridge High School student's state of mind after he shot his parents, Thomas and Kelly, in their bed in December 2010.
Crain is now serving his 20 year sentence and his parents are dead. One wonders where he got the gun in the first place? From this related article:In the video, Crain can be seen banging his head against the car window and shouting: 'I shouldn't have done it. What the f*** is wrong with me? I shot my own parents for no f***ing reason.'He twice shouts at the police who are standing outside the vehicle before lying down and remaining silent for a prolonged period of time.
Every gun in the hands of a child or teen must first pass through the hands of an adult.In a 911 tape obtained Monday by NBC-2, the then-14-year-old wails and tells a dispatcher he has no recollection of the shooting. He said he did not know where he got the weapon.“I was sleeping and the next thing I know I had a gun in my hand and my parents were on the ground,” he said.
