Goodness me, this person is heartless. How can someone do something so horrible to a friend. It sounds more like a revenge then accident.

Unfortuantely there are many immature pyschopaths that live in the community, and its is only a matter of time before they do something terrible like this example

"A friend in need is a friend indeed". Teens nowadays have no idea what this sentence mean. They do make friends but fail to understand the true meaning of friendship.

a result of watching too much

mtv jackass
dirty sanchez
violent video games
you tube self harm vids

if you watch the underlying trends in todays tv and music namely entertainment you will see the sadistic undertones within todays media entertainment.

he is obviously a sadistic little boy to actually put his desires in physical form. some people fantasize about strange things and let them pass but just like how pedophiles think they do not want to let it go and desire it so badly that they are willing to put someone else in harm.

the charges are too light, i would ensure that a psychological screening takes place for the sake of the citizens future/safety that no harm be done by anyone like this again and so he can enter his adulthood knowing that what he has done is illegal and wrong.
