Perhaps not "demanding", but suggesting the parents at least speak out? They do speak out when they perceive their offspring is wronged, yes? They raised their kids, or at least they are supposed to instill into them a sense of right and wrong. Speaking out again such acts of violence is taking responsibility, acknowledging that what has happened must, and does, have consequences.
Those who come out in droves to judge before knowing all the facts and supposedly know what is right and wrong, let them come out now and speak up. That would be the most loving thing to do, not just for these guys, but all those who ever think of doing such a thing.
Lets hold these kids responsible for their actions, just as we hold the police responsible for their action.

Bless those who were trying to do the right thing, to help, but let those who joined in, enjoyed and profited from such atrocity, be held accountable.
