Man, I don't even know what "rehabilitated" means in the context of this thread. Anybody that thinks that these three are going to spend a few years in prison and then return to society as West Point Cadets or Choir Boys is seriously mistaken.
Society's duty in this case is to make sure others are protected from them forever, whatever that takes. The same goes for the three that beat the white student on the bus and the other two that killed the 89 year old man in Spokane.
They gave up any right they had to their lives when they killed someone else.
“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
