So these 12 year olds will be incarcerated until they're 25 funded by us taxpayers. Then they'll pull a Jeffrey Dahmer for a few years until
someone finds the bodies in the basement. Then they'll be jailed again for 30 years, funded by the taxpayers. And to blame it on the "Slender
Man" on said website is totally ridiculous. Where are the parents? When my kids were 12 I never worried that they were influenced to do this. I
had taught them right from wrong. These are just "bad seeds". Some kids are just inherently evil. Give them the permanent sleep cocktail now or
else we'll be discussing another heinous act by these two in a few decades. Book it. Inherently bad people just can't be rehabilitated.
They won't get the full sentence. Or, even be jailed in general public after 18, that's if they are locked up until then.
These kids aren't 'evil'. They are just a little misguided and not right in the head. They need to be rehabilitated rather than a full out
punishment, because, if they really were psychopaths they would just play along to get the early release. One of the kids said they were sorry, the
other said she didn't regret it. Both are terrible answers, but think, if these kids were never taught right from wrong, were neglected, and just
left alone at the computer for hours and hours on end to almost literally brain wash themselves into thinking this mythical creature was real, the
question rises, where were the parents?
This case has a myriad of instances, processes, emotions, etc. to take into account, and simply locking them up and throwing away the key isn't the
way to go. Punishment for sure is in order, but not for 65 some off years they were charged with. A good example is child soldiers, or kids who grew
up knowing one thing, and that was to kill, is there no hope for them?
These kids just fed off one another's fairy tales, and the internet. The parents, their teachers, family, what ever are part of the bigger picture
from what I see.
