http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3667600/ It's about Lee Boyd Malvo. The jury is about to deliberate if he should get the death penalty or life imprisonment.
He's only 18. He was once an innocent kid, estranged I gather, from his real father and long without a mother. He was clearly influenced by John Allen Muhammad.
Does he get the death penalty because he did kill 2 others or should he get life imprisonment considering the circumstances? IDK. He was old enough to take responsibility for his actions---or was he? When do you become an adult? Surely he knew that it is wrong to kill in our society and 17 is not exactly a kid. Perhaps he should get life with the possibility of parole or maybe an even more lenient sentence. But with that last I stumble over the fact that two innocent people died because of his actions.
