... they committed a premeditated murder?
Unfortunately a friend of my family is in this exact position. I'm not going to give details, but the whole thing has just made me feel incredibly sorry for the parents and siblings of the accused child.
Of course I am absolutely distraught for the victim and their familiy, but I guess I had never considered the family of the attacker in cases like these.
So ... do you think you would be able to forgive them? Would you be able to stand up in court and give evidence for or against them?

Wow worst nightmare stuff huh.
I don't think I could forgive. I would feel like I have failed as a parent.

It's hard to say. I guess it would depend on circumstances.

I think that I would always love my children no matter what but I would very much not like them and be disappointed. Just because you love someone doesn't mean you condone what they have done. I think that you can also support someone without supporting their actions.

Nobody would really know unless they were in that situation.

Yeah I agree with London, no one would know unless they were in the situation.

My brother was charged as an 'accessory to murder after the fact' and seriously you can never say how you will react until you go through.
At first I was horrified. I knew the victim and also the guy who committed the murder. After learning what happened I can kind of see why my brother felt that he had no choice but it is still extremely hard to cope with.
Please don't quote as I will delete this later.

I think it would be so disappointing. It depends on who they murdered. If they killed someone because they were being bullied and did it because they had had enough, I reckon for sure. If they went crazy and killed a family member/s or a close friend, I don't know. Probably would eventually.

ummm...I would like to think that I would love my child regardless. I don't think I would ever be able to forgive them for taking someone else's life but I would still want to be there for them. Again until I was in the situation I couldn't be 100% on that.
