Not Guilty!

So two lads, 16 and 18 year olds, who planned a ‘fantasy’ murdering spree at their school, have been found not guilty of anything….despite wasting their own time in a stupid prank, wasting police and public prosecutor time, involving a considerable expense of public money, and achieving their 15 minutes of fame.

Who do they think they are?…..I have seen no regret or apology from them or the parents, and no attempt to explain why they did this, but they and their legal counsel (presumably paid from public funds) managed to convince a gullible jury that it was only a harmless fantasy!

Do they live in the same world as us? Do they not see what is happening about them? These guys were old enough to know what they were doing. And they just want to get on with their lives!  They hoped that this would not affect their hope to join the army…..I can just imagine an RSM dealing with them, and putting the fear of death into them!……… there’s a phrase that they might learn to appreciate!

  1. I do not know enough to come to a firm conclusion about this matter. I certainly have doubts about the whole affair.

    On the basis of the focus of the publicity this case has received, I wonder if the armed forces would want these boys.

    • I doubt very much whether the Services would want these guys, but if could guide their vivid imagination into a more controlable situation it might help.

  2. ‘Controllable’ that is the all important adjective here. Are these kids governable by a different kind of structure and modelling, or only by further brutalisation. Loose cannons are not good material for any walk of employment where ever it happens to be.
