    I thought Clockwork Orange took place in England?

    We had an old guy in our city killed by three kids who robbed him of $3. They got life since they were under 18 and couldn't get the death penalty.

    Parents, if you could call them that, should burn in hell too.

    Contrary to popular belief, some kids are rotten and it has nothing to do with what kind of parenting they've received or not received.

    Just like some kids are amazing and it has nothing to do with what kind of parenting they've received or not received.

    Reminds me of several Boston teens. Lured a pizza man to an abandoned house, slashed his throat, stole chump change and ate the pizza he was carrying.

    He would have had a lot more money on him if he quit living off the government and get a job.

    Blue font is sarcasm.

    And another one for the "What the Fuck is Wrong with People" file: A white supremacist gets 31 years for beating a 77-year-old black fisherman. Guy was fishing with his wife when the Nazi and two teens beat him up.

    And what's really messed up is that the Nazi is a convicted rapist and child molester who also threw urine at a guard while in prison:


    It's assholes like this that make me pro-death penalty.

    I was the foreman on a murder trial where a 16-year-old and a 24-year-old stabbed their neighbor 37 times in order to steal enough money to buy more beer.

    What punishment did they get, Knighthawk?

    Here's the part that kills me about the story you linked (And it isn't made clear in that version): Mr. Hitler had recently been released from prison after serving 8 years for raping a woman and a 4 year old girl.

    Now, I've worked in news for 20 years, and written up countless court and crime stories. I'm pretty immune to outrage over court and sentencing stuff. But seriously, 8 years?!? For raping a woman and a 4 year old girl? Are you fucking kidding me?

    I'm sure Mr. Hitler's written statement of remorse was quite heartfelt.
