I hope the kids who did this to him get the maximum allowed penalty.
what nice friends
If this isn't appropriate circumstance for being tried as an adult, I don't know what is...I don't want to see them out of jail for at least 10 years.
10 years my a*s!! Hang them from the gallows in the courthouse square until DEAD!
Poor kid. I hope he is sedated enough so he can't feel pain. What was the motive for doing it to him?
Kids can do stupid hurtful things. Sometimes, "beating up" or physically hurting another kid just for giggles. That's a part of being a stupid kid. However, what kind of sick minds would even, slightly, not consider that doing something like this is going too far? Most kids have enough sense not to approach levels of this extreme atrocity. Seriously.
i hope the the little f***s are incinerated to death.
AW HELL NAW! Those rooten kids need to go for life to prison! On a side note, I bet those idiots who did this are not going to be happy when they meet Bubba.
in my opinion, justice would be to have these kids suffer through the same conditions and circumstances they've inflicted on this boy.
In the USA, life in prison means 25-35 years with the chance of parole. If you really want to punish them, you send them to jail for 100+ years in jail. This makes sure they die in prison and they do not have a chance to get parole.
Agreed, in my opinion this crime warrants the death penalty if the perpetrators are old enough. If they aren't then lock them away forever.
They will probably be admitted to a mental hospital for rehabilitation.
Apparently a $40 video game and/or a bike. This is tragic. I hope he survives and recovers.
That'd be a slap in the wrist and a slap in the face to society and the family of the burned boy.
I don't know if that would happen.
Here's a bit on the background of the families of the children who did this.
The Defense will argue that the kids who set him on fire are mentally ill and need to be helped. It's unfortunate.
while very poor judgement, i am sure they didnt think it through and are now the most apologetic kids in the world
i dont think a death penalty is warranted if it was just a dumb act gone wrong and killing them wouldnt change anyones fortunes but killing their lives
That won't be argued as far as I'm concerned. The fact that they had the supplies to do this shows that it is premeditated.
Normally I wouldn't cuss in a thread but, THE **** WERE THE TEENS THINKING?! JESUS CHRIST. WHO DECIDES TO PUT THEIR FRIEND ON FIRE.
Disagree entirely with this. Justice isn't about punishment(despite what many think) it's about protecting the lives and well-beings of people. These kids proved that a) they are capable of an incredible level of violence b) are incredibly stupid c) overreact in a really big way. If they do this after someone snitches on them I would never want to see their reaction to something more serious.
Hang the little bastards before they hurt anyone else.
This goes way beyond poor judgement. This is a horrific and deliberate act, and they should never be set free again.
I hope they go to jail for a long time, maybe not for life as they may not have known the full implications of what they are doing but they need to go to jail for AT LEAST 20-30 years for what they did to this kid over a video game, if not longer.
A slap to the face of the society would be basing their punishment off of the longing for revenge, rather than the law, as so many have done in their opinions in this thread.
I like that you can forgive easily but frankly, this was thought-out and I don't think they're apologetic at all. If anything, they're sorry because they got caught.
Stick them in jail for the maximum allowed time for kids that age, stick their parents in jail for a 5 year sentence with mandatory sterilization.
