Bro or brodette, what is the deal with the liberal hypocrisy stuff? You harp on that on so many posts it's painful and redundant and not getting you anywhere.

Well, Im going to argue the other side of this I suppose now. When I was 15 my friends and I drove over to a friends house that we knew through the rave scene (aging myself I know). Smoked some, and later in the night dropped some '___'. We then thought it would be a great idea to go to the neighborhood pool. Mind you this is a neighborhood I have never been in before, and the house I didn't know either. We walked through the woods to the pool and back again later. The coming back was rough, and we all got kinda lost and separated. I actually entered the wrong house (the house nextdoor to the one I was trying to get to) through the sliding glass door in the backyard around 2am. Now I don't remember too much of the conversation I had with these people when they found me fumbling around in their fridge for something to drink, but oddly enough they just escorted me next door. No police were called, and nothing was ever said about it to my family. Needless to say I don't do any drugs anymore because 1.) I remember being very confused and agitated by these people, since I believed I was in the correct house why were these weirdo's there and demanding to know who I was? 2.) I really don't recall anything I said at the time, just my thoughts at the time, but to me it seemed like I was the one being attacked and I had no where to go. There was no violence or anything, and these people were unbelievably nice to just take me next door, but I don't know if it was advisable to treat me that way when I was in such a ridiculous state of mind. It still scares me to remember how terrified I was and what I would have done to defend myself.

So essentially this, I was a dumb kid and I committed a break-and-enter. I didn't intend to. The owners would have been dead to rights to shoot me dead. It's ironic, but I still think I am the one more rattled by their presence than they were by mine.

Dumb kids do dumb things. I'm not really on this kid's side, but I can see how drugs and identity issues can lead someone to seriously tragic judgement either in the child's regard or a victim's. How are you really to deal with that?

Edit: The third thing that I left out, and that scares me the most, is that I could have hurt these people. I was so confused, and in my mind they were the intruders. They handled it in a way that was absolutely to my benefit and I'm not going to turn an eye to that. It just scares me how wrong all of that night could have gone, and I don't know that what they did wasnt a ridiculous gamble that turned out in my benefit instead of in the social interest. So I guess I'm saying, it's a gamble.

It's bro, And I have never mentioned liberal hypocrisy in anyother thread here. What, Are you the decider for who's supposedly trying to get somewhere? Or do you just like wearing Tie dyes and Berkinstock sandals? Whatever the case may be, Like Patton once said, If everyone is agreeing, nobody is thinking.

Good story, and it shows how easy it is to have a misunderstanding turn violent. I had a friend who left a party of mine when I was younger and he was so drunk that he wandered into his neighbors house. He passed out on their couch, and he didn't wake up until morning. When he woke up, The entire family of four was standing over him with a shocked look on their faces. Luckily he knew his neighbors well, so the Police were not called. ~SheopleNation

It has become abundantly clear that the majority of those on this site are that special breed of filth known as 'contrarians.' They care about nothing but being against everything. They are only happy if they are disagreeing with everything. A grown man kills a cop for threatening to taze his dogs, and it's 'he had it coming.' A child, barely of the age of reason, kills someone, possibly by accident or through coercion, and it's 'fry the little punk.' What a bunch of waste.

12-year-old boy jailed for 30 years

Paul Henry Gingerich is serving a prison sentence for the shooting that killed a friend’s step-father. Even though he didn’t pull the trigger — or know that he was going to be a part of the murder plot — Gingerich was sentenced to 30 years in jail.

In Indiana, a 12 year old like Paul can be tried as an adult if the court finds it is in the best interest of society. His attorney, Monica Foster, tells RT that the controversy surrounding the case has led to unjust circumstances for a child that doesn’t deserve this punishment.

According to Foster and a slew of supporters, Gingerich doesn’t belong there.His lawyer describes the youngster as someone with no prior incidents, and that the worst thing they could say about him at his hearing was that “he sometimes didn’t do his homework and he sometimes talked in class.”

Foster notes that the boy’s original attorney had practically no time to put together a defense case and says that there was no way anyone could be prepared for a trial like this one. Now family and supporters are urging others to help make it possible so that his sentence can be overruled.

Crazy judge. Crazy law. Crazy people. Indiana, you are nuts. Putting kids in jail for life. Seriously? Stop this madness... Not even the soviet union did this.

Didn't you get the memo? America hates males and will use any excuse to persecute males. Heck 11-12 year old boy's are held to a much,much higher standard then a grown woman(why again should women have the right to vote if they won't be held to an equal standard? Maybe 11 year old boy's should have the right to vote if society holds them to a higher standard then grown women).

Heck read books from the 1800's like Jane Eyre. Back then orphan girl's got an education+ room and board. Orphan boy's got hanged if they stole a loaf of bread.

Western Civilization is an oppressive Matriarchy and events like this prove it. Flip the genders and it wouldn't be the same outcome unless it happened in Saudi Arabia.

Also if the courts did this to a little girl(same age/background) there would be millions marching on that court house. But a little boy? Same with the almost adult , teenage girl who killed herself. Garnered national sympathy and a rush to change state/federal law's. While a few months before-hand a NINE year old boy hanged himself in a Texan school and no one cared. A child driven to commit suicide in school and society doesn't even blink.

That is why TPTB are right for wanting to wipe you out. You have been judged and found guilty of being soul-less monsters.

A preteen mind is very malleable. He can be reformed and as a civilized society it is our duty to do so. No man or family is an island. Your primitive views on punishment should also be reformed. You are welcome to join us in the 21st century western society culture any time you feel like leaving your cave and goats. Good luck.

Your hand wringing liberalism is vile. An innocent man here was killed by this psychopath, he needs to be PUNISHED to set an example.

I Pray that the Creator levy's a curse upon you. May your vile filth come back on you seven fold. May your skin be littered with boils and may your teeth rot out.

You are truly an evil,vile sociopath/psychopath.

But I am guessing you think Casey Anthony and Mary Winkler getting a Vagina pass is fine? People like you make me sick. You are a coward.

hmm i think you mean its too human, cages werent invented by animals unless your willing to admit we all are animals, that would be crazy, we were created by a cosmic father figure thats now off screwing hookers and neglecting his children, so now confined in solitary, physicaly or mentaly gone mad enough to manipulate other people into killing, or covering it up by blaming them, eather way left alone with your own dark side long enough you will go crazy, where i live juvinille detention is solitary confinement, i had hard time so i wasnt even allowed to have a window, but its just the same as kids being taught by the media at the mercy of some video game inventor or tv write whos on some unnamed cia agents paylist

How are humans not animals? What Kingdom is hominid in?

You mean the same media that pushes a clear globalist agenda? Yeah them.

Trust me. Video games(for the most part) are not popular(yet). The media's executive producers are corporate extensions. Nothing more. They are only doing what makes their parent company money.
None of us are the golden standard for human moral aptitude. Not me. Not anyone. Even these sad/pathetic e-losers that spy on random people on the internet. Big whoop you get a cookie.

Who initiated Operation "Fast and Furious"? Donald Duck or CIA?

He should stay in Juvenile custody until the age of 18, and then do life in prison as an adult. No solitary though. ~SheopleNation
