If a 14 year old boy killed your child, what punishments, do you want him to face?
Sadly enough, i can really relate to this kid. I remember when i was 13, i was bullied, i was beat up, teased, and even shot with bb guns. I had so much anger because i felt hate towards my mom. I started writing satanic symbols and would draw everything upside down if it looked remotely satanic. I even wanted to steal a cops gun but i was already in Child Crisis. I ended up being bullied for 3 years until i stood for myself and got into fights. I'm 16 now, and now i know why this is wrong, but back then, if i had a gun, i would have killed everybody in my classroom excluding my one friend and then killed myself. then high school came, and i got beaten up by my supposed "friend" who was a senior, and i felt all that angry muster up i felt like exploding. I can understand why this kid did that. He should probably get a lighter sentence even though he killed someone and juvii/prison might make him worse. As far as it goes, if its true what i hear about prisoners, this one incident might make him to a ruthless killer instead of just an angry boy. So parole hearings are good. If he fails those, we all know it's already too late to save him
Is there a website or archive where I can find credible records/minutes of a trial?
Generally, no. Sometimes older cases make their way onto public internet libraries, but not this case. Contact Ventura County to find out what you need to do for a copy. They might even have an electronic version that can be emailed.
I used to work for a company making court documents searchable through a common system. We are years away from being within a decade of current.
Adult. But, he needs some type of rehab/counseling & not just be thrown in jail. That won't help anything & will probably get this kid thrown into jail later in life for a more serious crime.
He's still a kid, that true. But that just means that he can have a greater chance of the rehab/fear of gays addressed, instead of feeding upon that fear by sending him off to a regular jail.
The role of the school & his parents also needs to be scrutinized. Anytime a child kills a classmate over a perceived rumor that the other student is gay, there is something that could've been done at home AND at school so this double tragedy could have been avoided.
