No, Pete Townshend: The Kids Aren't Alright

No, Pete Townshend: The Kids Aren't Alright contains 22 true crime stories of murder. These murders were all committed by children from the ages of 6-17. Part One contains nine chapters of children from the ages of 6-11. It opens with two chapters on two kids who were both six years old. One boy in 1929 and one boy in 2000. The stories of Carl Mahan and Dedrick Owens occurred 71 years apart but the results were very similar. Nothing good happens when a six year old boy picks up a gun. Part Two holds eight chapters on kids from 12-14 years old. This section opens with 12 year old Jasmine Richardson who murdered her family in Canada in 2006. Part Three consists of five chapters on children ages 15-17 who have committed murder. This section opens with 15 year old school shooter, Kip Kinkel. The book ends with another school shooting. Brenda Spencer was 16 years old when she started firing at an elementary school across the street. Also, a Supreme Court case, Miller vs Alabama (2012), makes its presence felt in a few chapters.
