    Well, we don't know this since this case has not even been to trial. All we know is that we have some statements from the prosecution. Don't forget that people are innocent until proven guilty in our country.

    Because they are NOT adults. That is a fact.

    I don't think that a lot of the posters here understand the implications of this case, and the setting in which it happened. I was born in the town where the Australian baseball player went to school (East central U in Ada Oklahoma). Duncan is about 85 miles from there. These are sleepy little towns, where high school basketball and baseball may as well be national sports, and the people are good old boys, and salt of the earth. Most of my relatives live up there to this day. This isn't a shooting in Cleveland or Detroit. This is HIGHLY unusual in these communities, and imo, these boys should be locked up, and the keys thrown away.

    The kids implicated themselves, they said they caused the fatality because they were "bored". No trial needed, they claimed purpose, this was a malicious and not negligent act.

    EDIT - This is an open and shut case, the little idiots gave the evidence themselves.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I'm not accusing anyone of anything. I'm simply letting you know that:

    1. We don't know any details other than a few press releases.
    2. You certainly cannot rely entirely on what the prosecution claims - they are trying to make a case.
    3. Innocent until PROVEN guilty in a court of law.

    The boys themselves have been quoted, Chris.

    AGAIN, that is what the PROSECUTION claims happened. We haven't heard from the defense yet. These kids have NOT had a trial yet. WTH is wrong with you people? You want to assume guilt and assume that you know all of the effing details when it's obvious that you DO NOT. Why? So that you can throw some kids into an adult correctional facility? For what purpose?

    well...according to her, we only have the word of the prosecution that these punks said anything. I just don't get why she is bending over backwards to excuse this crap and wants these killers treated like children
