the news footage at the bottom tells us that they shot a second victim, too - but I see no mention of that in the article, am I missing it?

this is madness. It's just sad. On so many levels.

They should have thought about how boring a life sentence would be. What is wrong with people?

If you got nothing to bring to the table - don't even bother sitting down.

Is there like a missing link in some people's brains? When we got bored as a kid we got stuck with more chores, so there was never any need to cause trouble. Even kids I know that didn't do chores ended up doing silly things like cowtipping and stuff like that. No one thinks it might be fun to kill someone. These types of people do need to be off the street. Ya know, if I'd have done something this bad I would be more afraid to face my parents than the police..I guess I was raised right...

The world can be a very scary place.
From Michael Berg:

Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."
They have to be sociopaths. This isn't normal.

Yeah, I don't buy for a moment that "boredom" was the main catalyst to this heinous crime. People have back stories and those back stories don't necessarily get covered by the media. I do agree that sociopathy was involved.

I'm glad justice will be served and I feel so bad for every person who has been impacted by these boys' actions.

What?!? I'm a gun owner but who buys a gun for a kid? Guns are to be treated with respect but I guess if you have no respect for human life, you cant have respect for a tool like a gun. So sad!
With a gun comes responsibility. There are young people who own guns and go hunting and respect that responsibility. These were not these kind of youths. The parents may not have known they had the weapons. If they did then they should be held responsible as well.

I keep thinking how the family and friends feel knowing that this young man's life ended because a few young men were bored. What a waste. How sad.

It said in the paper here that he'd only been back in the US for three days, after eight weeks home. Definitely wrong place, wrong time. Tragic.

I Googled and can't find any other mention of a second victim, I did find a reference to them "planning" a second victim and a fb post.

I agree that they weren't bored but were sociopaths. Sociopaths tend to find each other and commit heinous acts together and rejoice in it.

Boredom is such a common feeling that I think a declaration that boredom was the motive for murder leaves the impression that anyone who is bored (and we all feel bored a lot) will kill out of simple boredom only. I don't even believe that's true of gang bangers. I think it's often more complex than that and there'd likely be things leading up to that moment that had little to do with simple boredom and more to do with things like mental pathology and/or early, abnormally high levels of exposure to violence.

I'm in no way an apologist for these young men's reprehensible behavior, just saying there's usually a lot more to the story than a shallow news headline about bored killers
