    News Video (safe viewing......it was shown on the news)

    This news made me physically sick. I actually wanted to throw up after reading it. Nobody should have to suffer acts like this. Weird how messed up our society is because of what guys are willing to do to have fun. :rolleyes: I'm not that old, but I still think that even kids born 5 years after me grow up so much faster, and yet are less mature somehow. It makes no sense, but for people who watch what's going on, it appears true.

    And before anyone gets started, "ABC = Australian Broadcasting Corporation or something like that. This didn't happen in America.


    Ok, carry on....

    The Education Department guy says it won't be tolerated and the kids get expelled. Where's the deterrent in that? Bullying of any kind is abhorrent, but this kind of thing makes me want some heavy-handed justice. And selling the DVD at other schools hardly demonstrates regret.

    they'll get court sentances as well. what those boys did is disgusting. They are idiots if they thought they could get away with it; they put their faces on the camera, for christs sake!

    They need to be put away for a long time.

    I saw the title of this thread and really hoped it was going to be something positive; sadly not :(

    I do believe there's far more good than evil in the world, but I do worry about the younger generation and how they get their kicks.

    Yeah, I thought that part of the story was pretty funny as well. Well, as funny as this type of newsstory can be....

    That is very wrong.

    Reminded me of a gang, about 100 miles south of me. They kidnapped a teenage girl, nobody knows what happened when she was captive as they doused petrol and other stuff on her and set her on fire in a field. It really hit me, I kept wondering "what if that was my girlfriend or my sister?". God I hate scum. I hope he does too.

    Rotting in jail is too nice of a punishment for them, daily beatings are more appropriate. ;) :mad:

    I'm sure that they'll be on the receiving end of a good kicking or two as well, poor little lambs.

    What strikes me isn't just the downright nastiness of what they did, but the fact that they were stupid enough to film evidence of their crime and then dole it out to people. :rolleyes:

    One can only hope for that to be the case. They most certainly deserve it. :mad:

    Good point, they are certainly not the smartest criminals. :rolleyes:

    Most certainly. :D

    Maybe if they go to adult prison. They might, since they're not like 12 years old or something. They're old enough to shoot a movie, edit it, put it on DVD with a professional looking CD Label and DVD box.

    And I wonder what criminals in jail might do to people like this. Yes, they are in jail themselves, but if they found what these kids did to be absolutely sick, but I wonder if they'd beat these kids a little......maybe harrass them? I hope so....

    I agree. I normally think that these reports of people getting beaten up whilst in jail is appalling, but actually I think these kids should be put through as much pain as possible. What twisted little f***ers :mad: :mad: :mad:


    EDIT: It's just occurred to me that it's shocking how childish someone who's at least 3 years older than me can be...

    I hope whatever they did to that poor girl (hoping not much more other than what was described in the quote), the samething happens to them in jail; let the punishment fit the crime. They are poor excuses for human beings to say the very least. :mad: :mad: :(

    Please keep us posted on any further news developments.

    I was hoping the for the same.

    Did you notice the report said one (or more?) of the bullies' parents laughed the matter off. WTF? They should serve time, too.

    what the hell is wrong with those kids, correction monsters? Not only is this just morally wrong in every way, they are selling away footage that is incriminating to themselves. what dumbasses. but their stupidity will greatly help the court make the daily beating punishment for the rest of their lives.

    excuse my language but wow.

    They wont get kickings in prison.My guess is they will be put straight into segregation.



    Some of the lil bastards will no doubt get home detention as well.



    They also threw a flare on a homeless guy as well I believe.

    What if there is no god and we, as a species, as a society, as a culture - are *all* that is responsible for our own actions?
