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.
It's funny how people are so liberal and forgiving when it's other people's families that are horribly murdered, and can even throw in a smiley face and have a titter about it. A teenager knows right from wrong, and knows it should be wrong to murder two innocent old ladies. I want a creature like that off the street forever.
