Default Caught the *****ing thug

Who murdered my next door neighbor - 16 years old

Unfortunately you can't fry people who commit a capital offence under the age of 18 in Tennessee, but hopefully he will get life without parole

he apparently robbed and carjacked someone else the same night also...

Deonvelt Miller also admitted to carjacking someone else just minutes after killing Mansfield, police said. In that incident, Cesar Nevarro was robbed at gunpoint of his 1999 Chevy Suburban as he and a friend sat listening to the radio in the 1500 block of Cahal Avenue, according to authorities.

So am I, but not about the "they can't fry him" part. Life in prision is perfectly satisfactory in my book if he is found guilty. Wouldn't want to descend to the same level of inhumanity, would we?

So that's an argument for making life mean life, not frying him.

Christ just think if the poor man that had his car stolen after your neighbour was murdered had known what the little bastard had done moments before... What worries me about kids like this is they have absolutely no conscience about the actions they commit.

Many don't possess the intelligence to realise what the have done.
This is by no means an excuse, and infact people who display such a complete absense of awareness and humanity probably pose the greatest threat to the rest of us.

Nothing wrong with a little bit of retribution
Everyone like to use bits of the bible for their purposes - well, I like the "eye for an eye" bit.

And here was me thinking that the criminal justice system was developed by civilised societies to make us all safer. I was obviously on the wrong track. The retribution part is a pointless waste of time: it does nothing for anybody.

I didnt suggest it was useful to humanity. Civilisation is a very thin veneer, anyway.
