The problem is, the father is dead. The kid admit killing him. What else is there to know?

There is plenty that needs be further investigated. Was it premeditated or self-defense? Was the father verbally/physically abusive that eventually led to this outcome?

Ideally having this information will determine the sentencing.

Yeah what’s with all the due process? Why can’t the rest of the world be more like Russia or China and just lock people up without it? What a waste of money.

It's a must to establish the motive. Without a motive the prosecutors cannot establish/summarize their case.

Knowing the motive is very important in establishing the behavorial changes in the soceity and also for prevention.

The sad thing is that he would not be charged at all because he is a minor. A couple weeks in a "reform school" and its off to live with some relative. So why even report it as news?
