    Must the injuries inflicted be life threatening to be considered "serious"? I clearly did not say that in all cases juveniles should be treated (sentenced) as adults, and even provided you examples of rational distinctions - non-violent (property crime) offenses are not as serious as violent offenses. I would imagine that the even younger crime victim will suffer physical/emotional consequences from this "minor" crime far in excess of the nine months of probation. These kids are considered "first offenders" even though they were removed from normal school and placed in an alternate setting. Do violent crime victims somehow feel less pain by having their bones broken by "kids"? Why do you consider a group beating, causing a broken bone, to not be "serious"?

    Attempted murder? I don't think so. It was a beating no doubt, quite a nasty one. Aggravated battery seems like the right charge. Why do you think it was so heinous that you need to throw out the laws on juvenile justice? Because it was caught on video? Because it got played on Fox and CNN? The US already incarcerates more minors than any other country in the world. Maybe the brutal way the criminal justice system treats child offenders contributes to the brutal way some of those children behave. Violence begets violence, brutality begets brutality.

    You have GOT to be kidding here? The father saying "I'm sorry for what happened to the victim, but that's just the way it is?" What the hell is that?

    Sorry, but these kids, all three of them should be charged as adults, and serve time.

    What say you?

    So what, little white punk should have known what was going to happen to him.
    That is the attitude with animals like him. Just like Trayvons girlfriend said, "its jus an azz whoopin'".
    Daddy probably smacked him around alittle after he was released, for getting caught.

    I don't understand the call to charge a juvenile as an adult. Change the laws to account for such a horrible act.

    It looks to me like he was referring to the "little white punk". The color doesn't matter. The actions do.
