When we think of children, we think of cute, adorable, and harmless creatures. However, there are well documented cases when children were more dangerous and cruel than adults.

This documentary takes a look at several of those children. On the top of the list is Larry Swartz, who in 1984 as a 17 year old teenager killed his adoptive parents. He stabbed his father with a steak knife, and then beat his mother with wood-spitting hammer.

Swartz case is just one of the many. But his case was sensational and produced a best-selling book called “Sudden Fury”. They even made it to a TV movie starring Neil Patrick Harris.

There are many other children that are serving life sentence. And all of them were convicted before they were 18 years old. Some of them serve prison for murders, others for frauds.
