Setting aside emotions and looking at it academically.

The child exhibited virtually every red flag in the book of having a major personality disorder. He appears to even have recognized it himself and tried reaching out to his parents for help.
(In some ways I would hold them more accountable than him)

I can't say why they ignored the signs and pleas. Lack of resources? Wanting to avoid stigma or shame of mental illness? Didn't give a shit about their kid? All possible.

As always we share the common ground that money spent on pre-cime intervention is more beneficial than that spent on post-crime punishment.
