I believe they got off too easily. Kids left unchecked and to their own devices will do some truly evil things. There's a whole lotta blame to be passed around to many people.
I actually see your stance and agree with a lot of it. However, it does not and will never change the fact that some poor girl will grow up with an immense amount of mental stress.......PTSD.......
I'm sorry, man, but we have to AS A SOCIETY hold humans accountable for the way they treat others. And, when one commits a heinous crime against another knowingly and then boasts about it afterwards, harsh punishment is the only way to handle. If you are old enough to brag on Youtube about gang-raping someone, then, yes, your ass needs to go to the Big House.
Juvenile detention is not enough in this case. Just imagine that being your child who was gang-raped.
People, the Capital Punishment thing was me speaking figuratively......sheesh
