The Apple River Stabbings

I'd like the DL's opinion on this one. Very surprised that the prosecution is going for Murder 1. I don't think they'll get it.

OP, I don't want to watch a bunch of videos. Can you not sum up the case or link to an article?

My bad, found the story in OP link. This will be hard to prove. Hope they make lesser charges available for consideration.

That was hard to watch. What a bunch of assholes those guys are. They are bullying that guy and never stop to help their friend. They should all be ashamed and they should all hit the gym too. Bunch of pussies.

R7, I watched the prosecutor's opening statement first, and was with him all the way. Then I watched the video and was horrified. They were inciting a mob to beat Miu over false accusations of a heinous crime. "Kids", my ass.

Okay, here's a breakdown. These kids were assholes, this guy was an asshole too. It's too bad they happened to cross paths and someone had to die. Someone on reddit said:

Many of us who are part of the gay community remember the bad old days when we were entrapped by groups of young men like this and badly hurt & robbed. I think that’s why when I heard they were screaming ‘pedophile! pedophile!’ at Nicolae Miu…that made my blood boil. I remember the kinds of young men who would do things like that & they were never held accountable for their actions. That needs to change.

Every one of the young men who testified said they were "scared". One of them said, "I was a seventeen-year-old kid, so yeah... I was scared." The defense lawyer showed him a portion of the video and said, "Um, you appear to be laughing", and he mumbled something again about being a "kid". I'm surprised the prosecution didn't order all of them to shave their facial hair.

Kids are feral now. The mothers are at work and/or Wine Facebook Moms. The Dads are gamers or gone. These little monsters are raised by iPads. The progressive femmes would have you believe this is all healthy, because discipline is part of the “patriarchy”.
