Looks like the creep's worst punishment would be to take away the Twinkies & DingDongs....
Looks typical of his type........no normal friends...probable loner....doesn't wander far from home.....inwardly at odds with himself, instead of getting a life, decides to ruin other peoples...........so if he likes to sit in his little lonely room give him 5 years without remission...it's about time examples where set.
IMHO, possibly an intelligent individual in desperate need of a true friend. I find it difficult to condemn someone such as this (granted, I am aware of the implications affecting others) whose background I have no knowledge of.
In my experiences with life thus far, it is the desperate person who is most dangerous.
The one unable to get help from others at the critical stage, and in moments of weakness,
unable to help himself.
Karma Cookie Please...
Who knows, he may have gone on to become one of society's great assets, if it had been for a few good friends at those
In the words of John F. Kennedy :
" To Understand A Man, You Must Know His Memories "
The same is true for a Nation...
good thing he is facing U.S. Courts as he will get his just dessert - if it were Canada he would get off with 100 hrs. of community service. what a shame that a smart mind is not put to better use.
Wow GF, that is mighty understanding of you.
If I knew how to give you a Karma Cookie, I would.
If everyone were that understanding, then he probably would never have considered doing something so negative (to society and his future).
However, society in general is far from being that evolved as to understand one another, let alone help each other without self interest. It is progressing forward (however slowly), but until then, we need laws that set examples so material minded people will think before they act.
Even without kind people understanding him, do you think he would have done it if he knew the penalty would be execution? (I am not saying the penalty should be execution)
EXACTLY!...........He's my Brother...but he ain't my fault........Screw him....give him something else to think about........We did nothing to him....we are not responsible for his thought processes......would he see the difference if we turned up at his home and destroyed everything he possessed......
my opinion is that people who do these awful deeds are not thinking of consequences - the thinking may well be they feel they cannot be caught. in the extreme of say a death penalty, i do not think it would have been a deterrent - a good lawyer can get a person off on a technicality.
I was not taking into account a corrupt/disfunctional justice system.
Rephrased, if there was a high probability of execution, do you think he would have done it?
probably cuz i do not think someone like this person, although smart academically, lacks social accumen who lives in a world of his own.
It's just a simple equation......Unhappy with self, equals angry with ALL.....If one has no self-worth or self-esteem then obviously everyone else MUST be to blame..........

It's so beautiful......I think I'm gonna cry!
Ditto ... thanks for sharing.
"plus possible restitution in the millions of dollars."
Yeah right....wonder how many Home users will ever see that money....but I'm sure the lawyers will standing in line screaming....Mo Money
Sorry, folks: this kid deliberately commited a crime and, for that, he must pay the price. Whether or not things might've been different if he'd had friends or interested parents or caring teachers or whatever is immaterial: he knew what he was doing, knew that it was wrong and went ahead and did it anyway.
I am not saying he's beyond help - far from it - but he's got to want to change his life. It cannot be done for him.
Yep, introverted genius's can be dangerous
