    I know it's an old article from 2007 but reading this made me really sad. So many young lives wasted...

    I am no US citizen but it should be illegal if i remember right, because there was a US supreme court decision which stated that life without parole for children (i forgett the age) is a cruel and unusual punishment.

    What made me sad about the whole thing - leaving aside what I believe to be the illegality of life without parole for children - is the fact that the Judge didn't see through the bargaining argument of the real killer. He gets a lesser sentence despite having physically killed the victim, while she gets life without parole for effectively having been there and nothing more. This is, for me, one case of a life being needlessly destroyed.
