Maimed for life with a tramatic brain injury was the last I heard.

If kids are old enough to preach politics in ads then they are old enough to incarcerate in a real prison.

Have a better idea. Let’s drop the same kind of shopping cart from the same altitude on the 12 year old and see if that kind of therapy works! I bet he won’t do it again if he receives what he gave.

This “therapeutic foster home” sounds like some Leftist-created bull manure that will only result in a 65% chance of recidivism.

FWIW, the AP story did say that the judge could extend the stay [in the residential program, aka, still no jail...]

The little bastards should have been put into some sheriff department boot camp until they turned 21, they get 3 hots and a cot, put them to work scrubbing floors, walls, etc., in public buildings and EVERY FREAKIN DIME they make goes to their victim (even though it wouldn’t be much).

sent to a therapeutic foster home

Where they'll shower him with love and sympathy and tuck him in with a chocolate chip cookie every night. That'll work.

Reward a misbehaving dog and you'll get... What?... More misbehavior!

There is evil in this world and these two cretins are examples.

The hurt woman was from a fourth-floor New York City mall walkway?

Yes she was, and the little rascal pushed a shopping cart so it rolled and struck her.

The only other way to read that is if he had been on the walkway and dropped the cart more than 60 foot on her while she was underneath.

If anyone follows the lives of these two little thugs, I predict that we will be hearing about them again and other citizens will pay the price for the short, lenient sentences.

From what I read she is awake but not much more.She was hurt badly and there is no way of knowing if she will ever recover to the point of begin able to care for herself.This sentence is too light IMHO since they have basically killed her.

I think the kid should be thrown off the parking lot ledge inside a cart.

I think the little T.C.B.E.M.J.S. thug should be strapped into the ‘chair, (glow in the dark $200 sneakers and all), and fried myself.

I think his parents should also be held accountable. If more parents were held accountable for the actions of their offspring they would be more diligent in raising them properly.

I think the parents of any child under 18 should also be held responsible for their criminal activity. It is their duty to raise their children to not only obey the laws but to be decent human beings. No decent human being would even think of doing what this 12-year-old did.

Parenting isn’t mind control. Kids can do some messed up stuff, regardless of how well they were raised. The variables are practically infinite.

It was a hate-crime. The victim was a white woman visiting a mall in a black/brown neighborhood. The kid should get at least ten years for the crime. Want to bet that once he’s out, he starts targetting other white people, and maybe kills someone?
