This is a tough issue and I expected to come here and see some intelligent discussion. Whether or not I agree, Life Coach is one of the only participants NOT using vile, immature, and pathetic language to make their point. Look at the way you so-called "adults" state your arguments. Disappointing. Grow up.

I have been on both sides of this kind of tragidy, unfortunately.... The child needs help, but I think in a hospital environment, do I think he can be rehabilitated, I am not an expert so I cannot say, but the fact is the risk is too large to find out not. I do know that the prison system are supposed to be about rehabilitaion, but all we see is punishment, punishment, punishment... did it ever occur to anyone that this PUNISHMENT theory we have been brought up to think works, has a direct link too these kind of crimes, I am sure that this kid was punishing Derick, in the ultamite degree one can punish another... what does that tell you. You have to take the hate out of the breed so it stops reproduceing.

This kid definitely had problems. At age 13, to know to lead the child down another path, choke, and throw rocks on the kid to make sure he was dead is insane. Then he said he sodomized the little boy to make sure he was dead!WTF! He knew what he was doing. He was sick at 13 when he was free, now he is in jail. What better could he have learned? Exactly!

I do not believe killers should get out of jail especially in this case they should be killed and exactly how they killed their victim. The familys of the victims should be able to decide how the murderer dies, sorry if i offend anyone i do not feel sorry for them i only feel sorry for the family who lost their child. That is the problem we pay for these pieces of human garbage to stay in jail too long screw that!!! just kill em. Sorry thats how i feel. I believe if you steal they should cut yer fingers off and if you rape..... and so anyway you get the idea I do not forgive or forget or coddle murders and so forth.

First I want to say that I have read every comment, and I'm a little disturbed at some of them. There are no acceptable excuses for premeditated murder. There is never an acceptable time to execute a child, or person with a actual psychological diagnosis in our country. We live in America, not the Middle East, we don't cut off heads, hands, legs, or genitals or whatever else was mentioned. I don't think prison is the proper place for this child, however, I believe he should remain institutionalized. Look at the past, Jeffery Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, they both had similar childhoods as this killer. So if somebody would like to have an intelligent conversation, let's talk.
