Even if he killed someone, you need to try and imagine what he's going through. He is young, and scared, upset. It wouldn't surprise me if he committed suicide. Everyone deserves a second chance. And one thing you all say is "He is young but that doesn't matter". He was young, and that DOES matter. Being young mean he hasn't experienced all that life has to offer. Just imagine, he will never fall in love and get married, he'll never be able to even drive a car. No Chirstmas, or birthdays with family. Everyone in the world hating him. He was stupid, and didn't exercise good judgement, but you should have mercy. I think a few years in prison, and then rehab, will be enough to teach him his lesson. I think that your opinions might change if it was you deciding his fate. Mine wouldn't, because my default is grace.
