yes and throw away the key
no, they deserve a second chance
These children may not have healthy minds, but they are STILL kids with child-like minds, processing skills and critical-thinking skills. They lack these things because they're brains are not yet fully developed. This has been observed by experts on MRI images.
If I made a childish decision and killed a person I would expect to be put to death. Kids know that killing is wrong. Hell, they know that pushing another kid is wrong. The idea that these are "kids making childish decisions so lets not make them face the appropriate consequence" to me, is ridiculous.The decision these kids made was in no way an "adult" decision. If anything, it was an extremely childish decision. The position that this was an adult decision is beyond ridiculous.
I agree his getting let off is ridiculous... to a degree. But the two are not analogous. He gave them information that helped solve dozens of unsolved murders. The police have to solve these murders. They used the guy to solve the crimes and the guy used a plea bargain to get a lesser sentence. Surely that makes sense?Here's an example of a TRULY heinous murderer who was spared the DP. So, save Gary because he is cooperating but kill 15 year olds. That's effing nuts.
I cannot understand this mindset. I cannot.
"They KILLED somebody, so let's KILL them!"
