    The police caught up with them and found the gun used to kill the innocent man.
    What would you like to see as evidence?
    At least one has also confessed.

    They were caught on camera. Are they so stupid as to deny killing an innocent man by shooting him in the back?
    Maybe they had bad childhoods--who give a mink's ass?

    You can't believe the cameras. With all the holographic equipment and the fake WTC airplanes...

(AP) — With the simplest of motives — breaking up the boredom of an Oklahoma summer — three teenagers followed an Australian collegiate baseball player who was attending school in the U.S. and killed him with a shot to the back for “the fun of it,” prosecutors said Tuesday as they charged two of the teens with murder.
    As the boys appeared in an Oklahoma courtroom, a 17-year-old blurted out, “I pulled the trigger,” then wept after a judge told him that Tuesday’s hearing wasn’t the time or place to sort out the facts of the case.
    The one who pulled the trigger should not only be sentenced as an adult, he should be sentenced to death. He thinks he's some sort of Billy the Kid? Fine. He gets the Pat Garrett treatment.

    I'd have to better ascertain the culpability of the other two before proffering an opinion as to what their fate should be.

    Do you suppose someone with a vendetta against the teens suffering from ennui threw a gun into their car?
    Or perhaps the police planted the gun, as well as managed to create a fake scene from the surveillance tapes?
    And the eyewitnesses were probably in on the hoax as well.

    I'd have to agree with you on this. The Hammurabi concept of proportionality (an eye for an eye) is archaic and barbaric. The death penalty should not be employed for reasons of vengeance or to "balance the books." The death penalty should be employed for reasons of domestic defense, to protect society from any further malice by the hands of the incorrigible criminal. There is no reason whatsoever that the DP should be reserved exclusively for first degree murder, nor should first degree murder necessarily warrant a death sentence. Justice should be based upon the potential of the convict for rehabilitation, and not upon the type of crime for which he was convicted. Of course, anyone who would shoot a complete stranger to death, just for the fun of it, is obviously beyond redemption and should go to the gallows within five years of conviction. I might also recommend that his two sidekicks be required to watch as a condition of their sentence, should they be convicted as conspiring accomplices.

    1. Perhaps... though a person with a vendetta would most likely not be suffering from ennui.
    2. The police plant guns all the time. They are probably the prime suspect. A cop probably shot the Aussie and then planted the gun to frame the kids...
    3. The eyewitnesses were found after the event. It was probably all staged.
