The jerks are all in Jail now, but there is one less moose in Anchorage. a very disturbing incident. it does seem that society is finally starting to see the correlation between these incidences and a future of brutality against other humans as well. there was a call for swift and long brutal punishment to match the crime. people in the comments about the article were wanting names and looking the names up of these people in social media. they are adults so the information is public.
strange to me that we have such protections for people under 18. growing up the age of baptism/also the age of accountability was 8. surely kids that are 12-18 years of age know that they should not be harming animals or other people. they should know not to steal or sexually assault. i just think all these protections for youth are too much. some of these crimes should follow them through into adulthood. it sometimes feels like society is saying...go ahead and commit these crimes...just do it before you turn 18, after that we will release your name to the public. shame can be a powerful weapon against crime. these guys who attacked the moose were in their late 20's to 30's. only so much that can be done as far as the law goes in these situations but i hope they give them the most that they can.
