    But no matter what link you got, they knew right from wrong. What they did was just about the most wrong thing in the world.
    Life in jail, no exceptions.
    Dont waste your time or breath trying to convince me otherwise.

    At what age do you suspect a teenager discerns that murdering someone is wrong?

    Imprisonment as a juvenile and attempts at rehabilitation.

    I dont think anything will "make us feel better" and that is not the point of punishment. Let them do life, and be examples of what being stupid at that age will get you.

    What attempts at life did they gave the victim? He was sentenced to death, for no reason at all.

    So IOW, you refuse to educate yourself on the subject. Gotcha!

    If that were your son they killed, would it make you feel better knowing the thugs received a slap on the wrist and probation? After all, they are just teenagers.

    I refuse to listen to blather about how innocent and salvagable some murdering thugs are.

    If you aren't referring to the death penalty, then I have no problem. I do believe they should be punished, but like I said earlier we've had the DP since Europeans first came to populate North America, and it hasn't really done anything to deter or prevent things like this from happening. I would like to see some solutions that actually work instead of the old "eye for an eye" routine.

    Of course not, who said anything about a "slap on the wrist?"
