Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

- Brenda Spencer, 17 years old, opened fire on a crowded elementary schoolyard with a semi-automatic rifle because "Mondays always get me down."

- Timothy Dwaine Brown, 16 years old, beat his brother to death before killing his grandparents in cold blood.

- Molested repeatedly by her father, 16-year-old Cheryl Pierson hired a classmate to execute him.

- Two Missouri brothers, ages four and six, attacked and brutally murdered a baby girl because "she was ugly."

There is a new breed of killers loose in America today — and its numbers are growing at an astounding rate. They are responsible for over ten percent of the nation's homicides. They are often victims themselves of neglect, violence and sexual abuse, of drugs and poverty. They murder alone or in groups — in anger and frustration, for attention . . . or for thrills. And they have one thing in common: they are all children.

Synopsis:

Who are the Kids Who Kill? Charles Ewing takes readers behind the headlines and reveals a side of contemporary life that is horrifying--a landscape of abuse, violence and neglect, revealing what is currently known about the psychology and personal histories of these kids, but raising the hardest question of all: how should society deal with this problem?

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 177-222) and index.
