These were four [4] 13 year old boys who raped a 14 and 12 year old -- 13 years old! I have not yet decided which is more awful - the fact that they are 13 or the sentence they received -- what does this say about the attitudes of these 13 year olds and I certainly have my opinion about the sentence.

Thoughts?

I clicked on the link inside of the story and saw the photograph of one of the offenders. His eyes told me everything I need to know about that kid.

18 months for rape and sodomy? People get harsher sentences for having a baggie of weed.

Absolutely - so this becomes an issue because they are minors? As if they did not know what they were doing, no less what they were doing was wrong? Or not? And, 18 months, things will change for them? Really? And they will understand the consequences of their actions? Really?

Maybe they can be rehabilitated. But, to be so violent at a young age...scary.

I don't see much future for these young criminals.

Treatment is getting better, but there's still no way to know, short of letting them loose, whether they've made any real changes.

18 months for what they did is a mockery of justice
