This child was ten years old. No just cause invites the death of children.
PS ISIS if you really want a NATO coalition, this sort of thing is the best way to get one.

EXCLUSIVE: A new front on the Cyberwarfront: Turkey. AnonSec, a Kurdish Peshmerga hacking crew has defaced 48 mostly Turkish sites, apparently in retaliation for Turkey’s failure to support their troops in Kobani, on the Syrian/Turkish border.

This is why The Cryptosphere is collaborating with Deadspin on their index of police shootings.
