We first became aware of the movie called "Six" by Dr. Helen Smith when the Dr. wrote a blog post about the 2008 Family Preservation and Equal Parenting Bike Trek. Exploring her blog further we came across this website dedicated to a movie called "Six". Based on the trailers and the topic matter, we will be purchasing a copy of this movie in the very near future.
Taken directly from the website for the movie "Six":
"On a sunny day on April 6, 1997, the Lillelid family met its death at the hands of a group of troubled teenagers from Kentucky. The Lillelids were Jehovah's Witnesses, fresh from a convention in Johnson City and anxious to win new converts for their faith. The teenagers were a group of outcasts from Pikeville, Kentucky, on the run after getting into trouble in their hometown"
According to the website for the movie, the film explores the roots of teenagers' violence, the failures of the authorities and social systems to address these problems. We have not watched the movie yet and are looking forward to learning more about the circumstances that led to such a tragic ending. We would have to guess that some of the teenagers did not have their fathers involved in their lives.
Sadly, there are some fathers and mothers who do not want to be a part of their children's lives after a divorce. On the other hand, there are mothers and fathers that are removed from an EQUAL parenting role in their children's lives based on the order of a family court judge. In the later case, we have long advocated for shared or equal parenting. Again, we do not know what the circumstances were that led up to such a violent and tragic ending and we look forward to purchasing this movie seeking answers to our questions.
Following is a news story trailer that provides a synopsis and summary of the movies main points:

The "Six" website provides an excellent summary of the movie. You can also find reviews of the movie and a photo gallery as well. We also found a link to an entire website about violent kids and the warning signs of those who may kill.
