Anyone who takes someone elses life in this way deserves to die. I wish NZ had the death penalty it could come in handy. BTW I'm all for the death penalty if correctly used.
Correctly used - who makes those choices?
The teenager has a life sentence why? Did the people he killed think
'oh its okay it was the teenager so we dont have to kill him?' Manipulation is an easy excuse - no one makes you a killer. He will be out in a few years - then what. Do you have reeducation or rehabilitation I dont know. Surely if you belive in capital punishment then what was your excuse for not 'zapping' him. Murder is murder and this was premeditated by all accounts.
