God almighty, how does that possibly excuse his crimes or demand a lower sentence than an adult ?

Even a thick 13 year old knows it's wrong to kill people.
A childs mind and a childs concept of right and wrong are still developing.

No one is seeking to "excuse" what they have done. It is about a relevant and proportionate sentence taking into consideration these were children when they committed the offence they were convicted for.

The supreme court agrees LWOP is wrong.
