    • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Kayla Rolland case. Kayla was only six years old when, on February 29, 2000, she was shot by a classmate and died a half hour later. The young boy, later identified as James Owens, was never held responsible for his actions as the courts deemed he was too young to be charged. He had gotten the gun from under his uncle's mattress, and the authorities truly believe he had no idea what he truly did.
