Judge Clogg has never turned a juvenile over to adult court no matter what they did so he can not be impartal in any ruling in this case Doyle vs Nadler so he should step down and let another take over . Myself I would like to impeach him so he can no longer make any rulings, and I'm working on this now. I have a lot of people willing to sign my petetion when its ready soon very soon

Rehabilitation doesn't happen in prison. Also look at Charlie Brandt. There's another rehabilitation success story. Child murders should be put down like rabid dogs. There is no redemption for these monsters.

This should be considered a hate crime and the ruling the judge has made reflects no justice at all. My heart goes out to the Jame's family and as a atheist myself this was a shocking and disturbing story. If this case had been White vs Black or Muslim vs Christianity it would a very different ruling. I am so sorry for your lose. Try and stay strong and know that there is support from all over the world

Just like the K2 Parents, people can't seem to bring themselves to blame the root cause of these deaths.

Come on people, get a grip on life. First I want to say to native woman, it's obvious you haven't lost anyone close to you or you opionion would be totally different than what you are giving right now. I'm sure the other family isn't WANTING any publicity right now, as there son is being betrayed as a murderer, what are you thinking?! Second, I've seen this stuff first hand and this isn't the place to go to spouting stuff at the mouth about what you know and what you don't know about what has happened in court, if this is still an on going thing i'm sure you don't really want to be releasing information on here like you are, do you? Lastly, getting on here going back and fourth after someone's child has been murdered is just hideous and looks so tacky, now step back from the computer and find something useful to do with your life, please!
Thank you.
This is not a forum for arguing the facts about the case. Leave that to the decision makers. Your comments here will not affect the case whatsoever.
I would like to express my condolences to the Doyle family, however, for their terrible loss. And I extend my condolences to the Nadler family, as well, who I am sure is having a difficult time coping with the fact that their son killed another child (intentionally or not).
I hope justice is served, but I do not claim to be an authority on any part of this case enough to know what the truly just verdict should be.

Guns don't kill people.
Irrational idiots who have been indoctrinated by more idiotic parents into believing in a magical sky daddy who tells you it's okay to murder people who don't follow the right god, THEY kill people.
This kid is no different than an abortion clinic shooter. He is probably a hero to his family, he managed to rid the world of a non-believer, and not even get jail time for it. You know how many Christians wish they could get away with murder like this? It's like a fundamentalist's wet dream.

I hope all posting on here realize there is probably more to this story that what the family and friends are telling. I'm sure more will come out later, like after sentencing. I just hope all of the "facts" can be backed up. I would hate to think people who are posting facts would look ignorant later on.
How do I stop receiving notifications from posts? This is annoying.

real FREAKING religious behaviour!! no hurting others, unless they disagree with your magic book, then murder is ok. I feel sick that he isn't being charged 1st degree, which it is!

Naive?? Maybe. But how do you explain the prosecutor's actions if there is all this fantastic evidence supporting a first degree murder charge? And how do you explain the obvious emotion in the 911 call that was made that night? If it is still available online, and you take the time to listen to it, maybe it will give you a different impression about what might have happened that night compared to what has been suggested in the press.

Let’s be real here. If this was the other way around, where it was the christian kid who was shot by an atheist, he would be tried as an adult and the judge would throw the book at him. There would be hoards of christians outside the courthouse screaming this was a hate crime and calling for the shooter to be prosecuted to the fullest. All these christians who are standing up for Dan are the same people who fully support capital punishment and call 15 year old girls who get abortions "murderers". Oh but when one of their own kills for their god, let’s be all “understanding” and “He’s only a baby”.

Does anyone wonder why they reduced the charge in the plea agreement? The only reason a prosecutor does that is because they don't have enough evidence to get a conviction. Maybe this was just a tragic accident like it was originally reported by the other kid that was there and the prosecutor overcharged it to begin with.
Another reason frequently used in the overworked court system to go for a plea is to save time and money. A jury trial is very expensive when compared to a couple of lawyers working out a agreement.
That being said, I also have a problem with sending minors to adult prisons even though this may be classified as a hate crime over beliefs.

Dead on. The hypocrisy and favoritism surrounding Christianity in the States is sickening. And then they've got to nerve to call themselves 'under attack' by secularism or Islam or *anyone they can* to get some sympathy votes...nowadays, when a Christian says their beliefs are under attack, 95% of those are because they're no longer allowed to deny someone their rights or beliefs and they hate having that taken from them.

Exactly. We already know they were having an argument over belief, and now we know the boy killed was an atheist and the trigger-puller was a Christian. But "killing for God" isn't murder, so it's okay...

what a guy wrote:
anyone who think a child should be punished as an adult needs to think === this is a bad problem with laws --- because how you are raised you go to jail ---- i think you need to look at people around him that may have cause this. kids learn from the things they see other do
The killeer was 14. Thats old enough to be responsible for ones own actions. Im 16, and I knew exactly what I was doing at 14, we were responsible for our acitosn thne, so this murderer should be too.

How sad! I hope this family can find peace soon. It appears they are not wanting too. I've seen this case on the news many times, and it appears the family is using this childs death for political reasons. My sister tells me the family has been protesting the Judge, because he kept the child in juvenile court. It's a shame. Instead of protesting, try contacting your legislator. You will get farther, and maybe help change the laws...the same laws that are binding the Judge.
this case has not been on the news alot of times it was too quiet for too long the people need to knowe what a rotten justice system indianola has you don't know us and what we are doing or feel so shutt up. you and your sister are so mean how do you sleep at night
