yes.. if the table was turned and the 88 yr old shot and killed the teenagers, he should get the same...the biggest problem at the root of all this is lack of respect for human life taught from an early age.. gee, even all the wild animals are given some sort of protection from being slaughtered by our government... but it is taught that human babies aren't a life worth saving in most cases... the surviving youth learn fast that human life isn't worth much... so goes abortion, so goes America

one does not turn into an adult on the very day one turns 18 just because they do in the eyes of the law. Shooting a man in the back and killing him is murder no matter how old the shooters are. Just as beating an old man to death with flashlights is murder. Not assault. In an assault the victim lives. And yes, the perp should do jail/prison time in most cases. Depends on the case. In the case of these murders. Everyone know who did this and why they did this. They murdered their victims because they wanted to and because they could.

I guess if you're convicted of "assault', you should go to prison for life so you can never be able to do it again. Stupid is as stupid sez, Mike.

WOW. Such a strong statement. Where's your backbone? Would you be saying the same thing if this had been your grandfather or your brother that was beaten to a pulp and shot in the back by such thugs? They want to do such deeds to adults. They should be tried as adults and then Hanged as adults. It is time for people of all races to speak out against these "kids" Just because the law says you are not an adult until 18, does not mean you do not act like an adult. There is no excuse for these killings. None.
