@Laephis People who endorse prisoner abuse are just like that little dude in the Green Mile who got off on hurting the prisoners he was in charge of.

After my grandfather retired from his life of service to both the Army/Air Force and then as a chief jailer for the rest of his life, he was a world renowned advocate and consultant in bringing jails and prisons up to a standard where the prisoners served their time without the state encouraging the same crimes that landed them in jail.

These kids who did this needed to be taken out of society because that type of behavior cannot go unpunished and there will always be a very strong risk of them repeating the crimes.

Too many people get the Eye for an Eye scripture. It actually means, when seeking justice or retribution, the MOST you can seek is an Eye for an Eye.. not the minimum. To want more is the same sick thinking that started these depraved hoodlums.

No...it's just some of us Canadians don't want our justice system to end up looking like something out of Iran thanks to your views. /shrug

@Faith Kill them. One bullet, .35 cents, instance of 30 seconds, 29 of which last words, one person, easiest thing in the world. Make it public. If that crime persists escalate the brutality. Fear of consequence is the only thing that will help us now. We have gotten too lenient, too soft and too weak. A defense used to recount actions and moments and in turn impose responsibility, now if your scout master had you sit on his lap in the past well... Its ok, Its not your fault... Disgusting how the powers that be have mixed up civility with complacency and weakness.

"Wellwood even mentioned his desire to do the crime..."

What has to happen in a person's life that this is what they desire? I'm not much for capital punishment, but sometimes it would be the better option.

There are some frightening people out there, and some pockets of culture where this kind of thing is encouraged. For every ten idiots on a certain image board that will remain nameless who are just trying to be cool and edgy and show what big men they are by talking about how women are subhuman and rape is no big deal, one of them is going, "Yeah, right on. See, there are people who feel the same way. Maybe I'm not so weird after all." And the more he feels like he's backed up by other people, the more likely he is to act on his desire to actually hurt someone.

Its just statistics. X ammount of people in the world, theirs bound to be social/bio chemical outliers.

These peoples brains are wired differently than the majority. As few of these types that their are, theirs probably fewer that then engage or are born into social environments that further push them towards the probability of murder.

What do we do in math with outliers?

Way to deliberately take someone's comment out of context for the sake of drama. Rayve made it quite clear that was not what it was about.

"Amazingly, his girlfriend mildly chided him to 'just don't do it again'. "

WTF?

@(Unverified) Im thinking that is taken out of context, as in she didn't believe him to begin with? If not, she could be taken to court as well... Obstructing justice/witholding evidence etc..

"Rayve made it quite clear that was not what it was about. "

Oh he did where exactly?

The bit where he says its awesome without defining what was awesome so leaving me to draw my own conclusions or the sincere "too bad" someone was raped and murdered. Not a lot else left in his post so yeah silly me for missing that.

You came to a different conclusion so good for you but I still stand by my own. Good day :)

@Pingles That is one of the best quotes I have ever seen, so very basic but so very true.

Wow. Some people are just... wow.

I have a hard time believing two teenagers would be so fucked up to where they -planned- on not only raping a girl, but killing her afterwards.

You -really- have to have some issues if you get like that.

What does he think the tickbox giving Blizzard permission to monitor all communications and run SENTINEL on his computer is actually for other than that? Durrrrrrrr.

So basically, you assume someone's a jerk because they're not as eloquent as you? Rayve immediately qualified that the 'Awesome' was not directed at the crime itself with the beginning of the next sentence. It wasn't worded with acute sensitivity, but not everyone can manage that off the cuff.

@Rayve

Don't worry, your intent was clear enough. If you were a despicable troll you wouldn't bother saying anything remotely like you feel bad for the victim.
