    Treat them as adults and throw the book at them! Treating them as juveniles will only result in a slap on the wrist (probation, community service, etc.). Jail is too good for them! Whatever they did to the pets they need the same thing done to them! RIP poor babies!

    Hopefully they will be tried as adults and fried! Their parents should be put on trial too but let the parents spend a long time in jail knowing that their children are dead.

    Females????? Sterilize these maggot SOS savages, then lock their sank asses up forever. Society doesn’t need pukes like this on the streets. If I had bred these douche bags, I’d disown them.

    These two need to be sitting in an adult prison – let them become victims of some long time incarcerated women who will use, abuse and intimidate these two punks – let them feel the terror they forced on innocent animals.

    If I were the victims of their crime spree, I’d send a message to the parents by getting a lawyer and suing the parents. They may only get a slap on the wrist and community service perhaps?
    I’d sue them because it may hurt them most in their wallets​. Not for monetary, but to prove that victims can and will fight back.
    Then, I’d arm myself to protect my home and property. If they’re stupid enough (and I think they won’t change) , they deserve to get hurt by the home owners.
