    Hopefully, castration is a viable, legal punishment in Indiana! This thing should never be allowed to reproduce!

    See you were doing good until you made the racist comment which shows ignorance on your part. I’m certain when he makes it to prison, he will be getting poked on regular.

    The kid needs to be locked away for a long, long time… but I’m sorry, if you don’t have the rights of an adult, you CANNOT be tried as one, in my opinion. It is a major failing of our judicial system that someone who must legally live with his parents, someone not allowed to vote, smoke, drink, drive, or serve in the military, someone who cannot purchase a home or apply for a loan of any sort — how can this person legitimately be looked upon as an adult?

    I want to reiterate: this kid needs to be off the streets and kept away from people for a darned long time. This is obviously a very troubled individual who needs to be removed from society for the good of that society. But he’s not an adult, and the fact that the crimes he committed were so heinous and ugly does not change that fact.

    Chicago is turning into one huge cesspool of criminals put a fence around it and take away their right to vote.
    By the way.

    What is considered “adult” in the black community? Many of the ‘adult’-aged Chicago blacks read at a 3rd grade level. Many don’t have jobs. Many aren’t married, yet have children, which they are obviously setting a bad example for. Many gladly receive handouts, then yell louder when they want more, like children.

    This 15-year old criminal committed adult crimes. Rape, robbery with a weapon?! Do you think he was at home watching Nickelodeon with his parents and working on a project for the science fair together? Don’t fool yourself…this person is not worth the effort
