Anyone read that story of the stupid fucking 14/15 year old kids shooting and killing a baby (in the face) in front of its mother because the mom did not have money to give/be robbed of? There is no place in society for such scum. But of course they will have a trial and appeals, and waste a lot of time and money, when they should just be thrown to the wolves immediately.
Any chance they saw the glorification of firearms somewhere and it influenced their actions?
14-year-olds can be pretty fucking stupid, ignorant enough not to realize that something like that is wrong, hard as that is to believe. There are countless examples of teenagers who went to prison for life for murder, and pretty clearly reformed themselves and spent the majority of their lives doing good works... I don't really think that if they'd been executed the world would have been better off. Here's an example.
