This is one of those rare instances where I think the ol' Mesopotamian mode of justice has it right.
 
2013-05-13 05:36:29 PM
Well that's about the worst story I've read in a long time.
 
2013-05-13 05:39:59 PM
The bomb was made of "ball bearings and white powder" ?

Failure of parenting. Evidently it happens in other countries, too.
 
2013-05-13 05:43:45 PM
Goddam, this is pissing me off more the more I think about it.
 
2013-05-13 05:44:09 PM
It's nice to hear some positive news for a change.

Makes me wonder how many psycho and sociopaths are wandering around. Seems like a lot anymore.

How did he get in to see a doctor so fast? I thought there were huge waiting lists in countries with socialized medicine?
 
2013-05-13 05:46:41 PM
wow he was just trying to make friends...give that kid a hand.
 
2013-05-13 05:46:41 PM

Quitter!

doglover: The bomb was made of "ball bearings and white powder" ?


Yes.  As opposed to black powder.

The kids who did this shouldn't be killed.  That's all I'm gonna say.

This sounds like a job for Kickstarter.  Get a fundraiser going to hire the local football club to go beat the shiat out of these miserable shiat stains.

I somehow don't think this is elective treatment. I see what you're trying to do, so stop it now.
 
2013-05-13 05:48:44 PM
Wow. Fark those guys.

Yes, this is the right thread to troll about American Politics. You are a good poster.

"Horrific injuries. His hands are just bones and skin and he just kept saying 'wake me up, wake me up" said Rebecca.

Well that hit me like a punch to the stomach, especially after pic 8 from the Boston bombings.

Poor kid. =(

If that was my son, I'd already be out hunting the little f*ckers down.
 
2013-05-13 05:49:56 PM
Mom is right, it should be considered attempted murder.

I like this idea. Crowdsource a righteous beating.

Not quite as bad as "Daddy ate my eyes," but it's up there.

First time I heard it called white powder.

Just shoot the kid who threw the bomb. Hey look, a donor with two brand new hands, hardly used. Two birds, one stone.

Neanderthal: If that was my son, I'd already be out hunting the little f*ckers down.


I don't think I'd be able to rest until I did so.

Nah, in this case all I'd do is garnish 50% of their pay/income for the rest of their lives to support him.
 
2013-05-13 05:53:25 PM
Beat your kids and this shiat won't happen.

I would have never thought of making a bomb as a kid, not even lighting a roman candle without my father around. Why? Because if I did he'd beat the crap out of me.

Behave, or else! Works when the or else isn't a farkin nap or no TV for 2 days,


//this shiat gets my goat.

I'm not sure I want to know anymore about that story.

I gotta go with this.

Yup I'd be in Jail for torture and attempted murder.

/There were some shiatbags in the godforsaken mill town I grew up in who would have tried such a thing if they had access to the gun powder and knowledge.  Fortunately they were all dumb as a box of rocks and this was per-internet days.  They would regularly steal the autistic kids bike after school to watch him freak out.
 
2013-05-13 05:55:21 PM
whatever happened to a wedgie and call it a day?
 
2013-05-13 05:55:21 PM
The teens involved range from 15 to 18 years of age. Yeah, I'm fine with an attempted murder charge.

Terrorists! Lock down the city until we find them! Force people from their homes at gunpoint in violation of their 4th amendment rights! Shoot at them while they're unarmed, and then question them without legal rights!

There are a lot of good things about humanity, but I often wonder if they outweigh the farked-up things about humanity.
 
2013-05-13 05:56:52 PM
If I were that kid's dad, then I'd hand him over to the police and say 'you are no longer my son'

This is why we need more sociopathic abortion doctors....

My brother has Down's, and I spent a fair amount of time with him and his classmates as he was growing up, children who had all kinds of developmental and learning problems of various sorts, including autism. So whenever I read about people abusing someone with a mental handicap of some kind, it hits close to home and makes me feel utterly murderous. I've yet to ever meet someone with autism who was malicious. However offputting their behaviour may be, they never seem to have whatever it is that leads to deliberate cruelty to others. Stuff like TFA is to my mind worse than doing something equivalent to a normal person, because they can't even understand why it happened.

Jesus farking Christ. Can the news be any shiattier today?


Somebody post pics of kittens or puppies. Hell, I'd even take a MLP at this point.
 
2013-05-13 05:59:25 PM
Since this is from the land down under, why not strip the three teens naked and drop them in the middle of the out back.  If they make it home un-aided they were meant to live.

If it were my kid, I think the assault charge for busting the 18yr old's knee would be worth it.
