That basterd should have gotten murder, all the news articals would make any person unrelated to the case think that it is murder.

The a-holes age was proberbly a factor in trhe virdict, but seriously 14 or 40 you wil know the concequences of stabbing someone, especiay in the ribs. What mron dosent know that the ribs protect the bodys most vital organs.

To be honest i have a biast view on this case, Shayne walker was and still is my best friend and i was one of the witnesses in the trial.

I am disusted in todays legal system. Kalem Ames has a violent past, his ex girlfriend is also one of my best friends and i knw for a fact she suffered from his violence first hand.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS JUSTICE IN NEW ZEALAND

What was a 22 year old doing hanging around with 13 to 15 year old kids. A lot of lies were told in court by the immature young people giving evidence. (Who were caught out lying in both trials). That is why the jury came to the conclusion of not guilty. Violent past for the offender get real. Lie detectors weren't needed in this case cause all their stories didn't add up. YOU ALL KNOW WHO DID THE LYING.....

Jorgigirl what a load of rubbish you are talking about,(unless you are his mother,cause you are all sh*t) I would like to know who gave kalem drugs to smoke? wasn't my son...it was his mother, who gave kalem the alcohol? wasn't my son...it was his father....

Who picked up the knife and stabbed my son in the back from behind....IT WAS KALEM AMES....the coward a***wipe.....how do you try and scare someone by stabbing them from behind, and then had the cheek to say he didn't mean to KILL Shayne...

There weren't any lies told in the trial...if Kalem was so innocent why didn't he take the stand...You know why.!!!! It would be a clear case of MURDER...and not Manslaughter...

As far as I am concern KALEM AMES is a MURDERER and nothing else, I would like to see what you would of thought if it was my son stabbing Kalem in the back to scare him...see if you would think if it was manslaughter....

Nah I not all shit and no I am not his mother or father. It was the jury 12 very independant people who listened to what the witnesses?? had to say. That is why they came to the conclusion NOT GUILTY of MURDER. It wasn't only Kalems father who supplied the 4 under aged kids with alcohol what about the mother who dropped her son off with a 40 ounce and box of cody's.
And yes the situation could of been easily reversed.

jorgigirl put yourself in Shayne's family shoes and then tell me if it wasn't MURDER especially when Kalem acted the scene out before he went out and killed my son then try to get rid of forensic evidence by burning the knife (unless you think what kalem said in his statement is lie as well) I don't think so....

If you still think it's not murder then you are just as callous as Kalem is as well...he took a life and you and his family think that is alright to do this....

How do you justify that?? Over what?? HE TOOK A LIFE MY SON'S LIFE...

Wait til some one takes your child's life then tell me something different...

how is it shaynes dads problem to do with the mother dropping her son off with a 40 ounce and box of codys ? eh .
its not to do with us . if you really want to know ask that boys mother .!
your just as clueless and childish as the boy who murdered my brother. you have no heart, what if it was a family member of yours eh ? wouldnt you be the same. unless you have been in this kind of situation you will never know what we have been through this past year . and of course there stories might have changed. its been over a year how are they suppose to remember every single detail, every minute, every hour of what they were doing huh ? you would be the same if you were a witness wouldnt you . it was just as traumatic for them as it was for us. get that through your thick head! you stoopid beeetch .

jorgigirl is probably kalem's mother!! sounds like a thick bitch that she is....and we all know that she is a P freak anyways...

At least Kalem's father acknowledged to us that his son did wrong and that He was so sorry for our family not like Kalem's mother who thought it was a joke that her son killed a human being and was ACTUALLY PROUD that her son had killed someone....

No wonder her son did what he did, his mother is just as bad as Kalem is....

Yep about what I expected. Get it thru your thick head I am not Kalems mum. Get your facts right before slandering people and telling lies. I suppose she will get another death threat. So glad you are the perfect parent.

I used to work with young offenders, some were a victim of their upbringing, some born evil, some in the wrong place at the wrong time.
To be that young and put a knife in your pocket before you go out.....pre-meditation straight away. Doesn't matter if your 14 or 40 you took a life and should be accountable.
I don't feel sorry for Kalem I feel sorry for the people who will never be the same because of what he did, intentionally. My thoughts are with his Family I hope you have fond memories of Shayne to remember and that the Pain gets easier.
Kalems Family I hope you never forget or try to minimise what your Son did and hope you regret any decision or action you may have one as a part of this terrible event
