Ten Year Old Boy Shoots His Mother Dead Because She Wouldn’t Buy Him a VR Set Off Amazon – Motherhood and the Nuclear Family Doesn’t “Save” Society or Guarantee Safety, Happiness
Another example of how parenthood and “The Nuclear Family” doesn’t make people any happier or safer or improve society.
Being a mother didn’t make this woman’s life any better, it ended up getting her murdered – by her own kid.
A 10-year-old boy has been charged with murder for shooting his mother in the face at close range while she was doing laundry – because she refused to buy him a virtual reality headset.
Milwaukee boy’s family says he has mental health issues

A 10-year-old Milwaukee boy intentionally aimed a gun at his mother, then shot and killed her, because she would not buy him a virtual reality headset, prosecutors said.
The boy initially told police that the Nov. 21 shooting was an accident, according to criminal charges obtained by the Journal Sentinel. But later he said he intentionally aimed at his mom before shooting her. The boy was charged as an adult last week with first-degree reckless homicide.
Wisconsin law requires children as young as 10 to be charged as adults for certain serious crimes, though the boy’s attorneys can seek to move the case to juvenile court. The boy, who family members said has mental health issues, is being held in juvenile detention.

A 10-year-old Milwaukee boy fatally shot his mother in the face because she would not buy him a virtual reality headset — then logged onto her Amazon account and ordered it the next day, prosecutors said.
The boy has been charged as an adult with first-degree reckless homicide and is being held in a juvenile detention facility, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, which didn’t identify him because of his age.
He initially told police he got the gun from his mom’s bedroom about 7 a.m. Nov. 21 and went to the basement where she was doing laundry.
The boy claimed he was twirling the weapon around his finger when it went off. He told his 26-year-old sister, who called 911, the news outlet reported.
But a day later, his relatives contacted authorities questioning his story and he admitted to police that he intentionally pointed the gun at his mother, according to a complaint cited by the outlet.
The boy’s aunt said that when she picked him up the day after the shooting, he grabbed a set of house keys that contained a key to the gun’s container, the paper reported.
When she asked him about the shooting, he told her he pointed the weapon at his mom, who said: “Why do you have that? Put it down,” according to the complaint.
The day after he allegedly shot his mom in the face, he logged onto her Amazon account and ordered an Oculus Virtual Reality headset — and also assaulted his 7-year-old cousin, documents cited by the Sentinel say.
“I’m really sorry for what happened. I’m sorry for killing my mom,” the boy said without empathy or compassion, according to the aunt.
Relatives told authorities about his history of disturbing behavior, which included an incident where he swung his puppy by its tail when he was 4, the Sentinel reported, citing a complaint.
Six months ago, he caused an explosion when he set a balloon containing a flammable liquid on fire, the family told investigators.
They reported that the boy told them he heard imaginary voices.
When police interviewed the boy again, he told them he aimed the gun at his mom and tried shooting a wall to “scare her,” but struck her when she walked in front of him, according to the complaint.
He told investigators he got the semi-automatic Glock 43 from the lock box because his mom woke him up early at 6 a.m. instead of 6:30 a.m. — and because she wouldn’t let him make a purchase on Amazon.

The 10-year-old Milwaukee boy who allegedly shot his mom over a virtual reality headset had “two little girls” inside his head who told him to do things, his grieving grandmother said — as she begged for mercy for her sick grandson.
“He’s always said that he hears voices,” Lueritha Mann told The Daily Beast on Thursday.
“There’s two little girls inside his head telling him to do things. And he has an imaginary friend that will tell him to do really bad things.”
The boy also had difficulty sleeping and would complain about the voices being especially intense in the early morning, Mann added.
He has been charged with first-degree reckless homicide and, due to the nature of the crime, will be tried as an adult.
