Wisconsin Gettin' Tough on Crime

via Norwegianity - Talk Left reports

Omer Ninham was 14 when he was part of a group of kids that killed a 13 year old by throwing him off the top of a parking garage. He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. The Wisconsin Supreme Court today upheld the sentence.
What's your opinion? Is that a little severe? Bad teenagers should be allowed some chance of changing their lives around, don't you think?

Please leave a comment.


  1. Don't you think that 13 year old deserved a chance at a life?

  2. Well no guns were involved so what is the big deal right? I mean what kid doesn't go through life without throwing a person off a parking garage? Who could expect a 14 year old to understand what would happen in that situation?

  3. Yup, no guns involved, so who gives a piss about some failed abortion disadvantaged youth, certainly not MikeyB who thinks that the punishment was too severe.

  4. He can change his life around in prison.

  5. You guys are a tough crowd to please. You complain that I write only about guns and gun violence, then when I expand it a bit, you complain about that too.

    FWM, no I don't condone the murder of a 13-year-old, but I do object to an overly harsh sentence of his juvnile killer.

    The roof-pusher probable came from a bad home, the dad was probably a gun nut.
