Thanks Again US Supreme Court


Looks like these two teen killers will be spared the death penalty thanks to the SCOTUS changing the death penalty laws for minors. One of teenage boys who was accused in “the beating and stabbing death of a 13-year-old learning disabled youth pleaded guilty to second-degree murder Thursday and was sentenced to 14 years in prison.”

So the teen killers were spared death due to the reversal by the Supreme Court. That’s more than I can say for Craig Sorger, the 13-year-old learning teen who was senselessly murdered.

      Thank you. It is okay that they don’t receive the death penalty. No amount of punishment will ever bring my cousing back. At least with them being tried as adults they won’t be able to purchase guns, work as teachers, or be police officers.

      It seems that majority of support goes to Jake and Evan when everyone thought they were innocent and in fact they aren’t. It is apparent now that they did commit the crime and I believe we will learn even more about that horrific day as the next few months approach us. It sickens me to see how much support these two young men have received when all along they have known themselves to be guilty. I couldn’t live with myself if I had brutely taken such a life and I don’t know how they live with themselves. They do have a lot of time to reflect what they did that crisp day in February.

      Your welcome. I wish that you had left you email. From the initial reports that came out there seemed no way that these two were innocent. This was just a terrible story that one wonders if any teen could ever be rehabilitate who would ever do such an act. My opinion is no.

      Having worked and volunteered with learning & physically disabled youths this story was really tough. My heart goes out to you and the friends and family of Craig Sorger.

      i’m glad they dont get the death penalty, what good woud it do? It would just result in so much for pain… and i still wouldn’t be able to get my friend craig back. its been almost 3 years since it happened, yet i feel like it was just yesterday. it seems so recent yet so long ago. i miss Craig and i have met jake, but just briefly. craig didnt seem that different, he was just one of those kids who always seemed to like to talk. he is a great guy and i am fortunate to know him. i had prayed for sooo long that jake would have been innocent, now i dont know what to think…
