I really do not understand this mentality when it comes to crime and punishment.
This was a 13 year old child whose mind was still developing.
Clearly he has had to pay for his crimes. No one is denying that. It is the sentence that is harsh.
The attitude of some people, when it comes to law and order, disgusts me.
This is not about excusing criminality it is about making the sentence proportional.
