yes and throw away the key
no, they deserve a second chance

it's not like this was a bunch of kids who found daddy's gun and were playing cops and robbers and shot one of their playmates.
The reason this "problem" has not been resolved before now is because nobody knows what to do.
It's not a matter of rehabilitation, they failed to develop the slightest shred of conscience or compassion during the early years when other children are developing those critical traits. My guess is that this lack of humanity in "children " is rapidly becoming an evident problem throughout the civilized world.
In all likelihood, these "children" if ever set free, will spend the rest of their lives brutally harming innocent people and even other children and still incur millions of dollars from taxpayers to babysit them for the rest of their lives.
We owe a duty to those future innocent victims as well as the young man they murdered.
I believe the solution is that they should be tried as adults, but with certain adult punishments taken off the table, such as the death penalty. That would leave the problem of long term cost to taxpayers, which would require that they be forced to work to pay for their room and board during the entire time they are incarcerated.
