    Old boys have been jailed (?) for 12,and 13 years for killing another 14 year old the 15 year old girl who lured the victim into the park for the planned attack got 3 years for manslaughter

    Think in some states in the US under age murderers are put in death row ounce they reach 18 ?

    If it isn’t true, then yes a lot of states have their own laws/justice systems. I believe the murdered was autistic, tragedy really :(

    The way I see it - this is the UK, not the USA (transams's own words). It's unlikely the UK will ever stoop as low as the USA.

  7. How does Autism make murder any more or less tragic?

    I didn’t say it did, it’s a tragedy either way.

    My lad's 14, absolutely shocking waste of a life. They all deserve the same (death) sentence imho.

    As CBW states, it's a tragedy either way, and none the less tragic which ever case. However, as someone who lives and works with children on the autism spectrum it makes them very much more vulnerable. In simplistic terms, (and I don't mean this in any derogatory way about anyone), a 'normal' child is capable of knowing when something/someone can be dangerous. Someone on the autism spectrum has a reduced awareness of danger or potential danger because they cannot always read body language. Most people can recognise, subconsciously, danger signals. An autistic person can't so they are in greater danger of being hurt/harmed and a lot of perpatrators take advantage of this to hurt their victims. If the victim had not been autistic he may have recognised the danger signs and avoided the situation, thereby saving his life.

    I agree with securespark in that they should all have been charged with murder. The two boys knew what they intended to do and the girl. by association, would/should have known that their intentions were to cause him extreme harm and refused to cooperate with them. If she was shocked by what they did she should have handed herself into the police and reported who did it. Not an easy thing to do but it's what I taught my children to do if they did anything wrong. Thankfully they have never been in a situation like this but I believe they would know what the correct thing to do was, even with it's consequences.

    Thanks @conny, kind of the point I was trying to make, but couldn’t elaborate in my own words. I was talking with someone yesterday whose child is on the spectrum and she moved house because her someone was bullied, saying he has no common sense, basically if someone were to punch him, he’d stand there and take it.

    Would that have any benefit to anyone apart from satisfying your bloodlust?
