SImple: no sympathy. if it is legally important that he was mentally 10, he should have been tried as a juvenile and the records would be sealed. you freaking liberal morons at CNN who make a big deal over how maybe his rights were violated by the sign have never experienced a loved one getting raped or molested, let alone if they were a child at the time. the whole issue of child rape and molestation could be cured by making rape once again a capital offense, and adding child molestation to that. Hurt a five year old? no problem. You are dead.
