I totally agree man but whats probably gonna happen is theyll do 15-20yrs and come out with a masters in criminology, than the cycle continues.. I did some bad things as a kid and realized thats not who i was... These kids did something horrible but 1 day they might regret it and want to be good people too... I say we have to invest in communities and people or where just gonna continue to have tragedies like this..
To the people who say have them k!lled, I say YOU do it.. Let their blood be on YOUR hands.
first off rip to the lady. something like this is always tragic regardless of race. good comment. it's people like the guy you responded to that are the problem and continue the cycle of ignorance and apathy in this world. first off, why are they being tried as adults at 13??? god damn. that mean that these kids are doomed at life. granted they have made a grave mistake and taken someone's life however let's be fu*king for real, does anyone really think life in jail for 13 yr olds in the solution??? like you said, all it's going to do is create bigger monsters if/when they get out.
what about all of the drone attacks that the US is conducting on foreign lands that we are invading under the mask of anti terrorist efforts???? should we then keep the entire army locked up for life and/or k!ll them??? i don't hear anyone suggesting that bullsh*t. the environments that these youth are growing up in are what the problem is. when you couple that with the media, lack of parenting and other factors you get situations like this. different thinking across the board for all people is what's needed to make this world a better place.
fu*k that. You do something this bad, even at 13 and you should be done.
fu*k wasting our taxes on trying to rehab these little pieces of sh*t. Whoever k!lls them is doing what needs to be done.
great solution. k!ll all the people who do bad things. we won't have any people left in this world. where should we start??? in ghettos like this where sh*t happens every day or on wall st, say at lehmen brothers, where their company was partially responsible for the 2008 economic collapse??? or at GlaxoSmithKline, who paid a 3 billion dollar fine to the gov't for falsely advertising drugs to do things that they didn't do and cause over 100,000 deaths due to these drugs??? or how about HSBC, who recently paid about 2 billion dollars to the feds for money laundering billions of dollars for the same Mexican drug cartels that have been responsible for over 50,000 deaths in the last few years due to an "illegal" drug trade that brings tons of coke and weed into the US and plays a major role in the "war on drugs" which is further incarcerating the fathers of kids like this FOR YEARS AND YEARS behind non violent bullsh*t drug charges???????? so where do we start oh great philosopher?
These fools don't care about the black-on-black murders that occur every single day in the hood. But as soon as there's a difference in race, they pounce all over it.
don't you see the pattern? it's what the media does. portray black people, even their kids, as monsters. for them to try 13 yr olds as adults speaks volumes into the harshness of the criminal justice system towards minorities. i'm in no way excusing what they did however, the man's desire to get them off the street and into a cage for the rest of their lives is criminal within itself. i'm so sick of white people blaming minorities for their actions as if white folks could ever really talk about heinous, criminal or harsh activities to another race, AS IF WHITE PEOPLE ARE THE NICEST, MOST AGREEABLE, MOST GET ALONG WITH RACE ON THIS PLANET. all they create is destruction, greed, selfishness and apathy so what do they really expect in return???????????????????????????????????????????

No offense dude, but what kind of a.ss backwards logic is that?
Violence begets violence.
All you have to do is look at these third world countries that (most if not all) have harsher punishments and allow vigilante justice, to see this. These countries become war torn because of the lack of civility for these types of matters.
What we need is more compassion and care in this world. Kids are ending up like this because people (not just parents, but they are a significant factor) now a days preach and promote this bullsh*t way of life where everyone needs to be "hard" and showing compassion is weakness. These kids are soaking this ignorant nonsense up then turn around and commit atrocities like this. We're feeding the next generation ignorance and nonsense and because of it the world will suffer. You reap what you sow.
Harsher punishments don't work because the ignorance that lingers in these children's minds clouds what should be their better judgment (at least it would be if we brought them up right) and as a result they don't look towards the future and see the bigger picture. They don't think ahead and prepare for consequences. They're living in the moment because they're being brought up to believe that that's all that matters. No compassion, no care, no goals or eye for the future, no love in their hearts. There's only now and it belongs to them, fu*k everyone and everything else.
That's the problem with this world today, too many careless, ignorant, selfish people. It's the blind leading the blind and there aren't enough real leaders to change that.
some people are BORN into environments where they're surrounded by death and ignorance, i wouldn't expect you to understand since you're a sheltered middle class white guy.
hahahahahaha. how could they??? they don't really understand the struggle. white people could never understand our struggle. they haven't experienced what black folks have gone through. let's reverse the roles and enslave them for a few hundred years. create a bias monetary and judicial system where we target white people and incarcerate them forever and see how that weighs on them. let's depict them as monsters in all the media that we own. let's manipulate their rock and country artists to make music about selling drugs, brandishing guns and k!lling their own for nothing and see how that affects their youth. some of these cats in here are just ignorant to the workings of this country and are better off playing their XBoxes and PS3s until the day comes when sh*t gets really real and maybe then their eyes would be open to what's going on.
