    What the fuck? If they want to kill someone go join the military and potentially get yourself killed. That's pretty fucked up, but what do you expect from a prison colony. :lol

    Some of these working-class mining towns are fucked-up places. Small, isolated, boring, nothing to do. I doubt the same girls would have done anything like this if they were living in a bigger city with some entertainment (not that killing someone could ever be classed as entertainment).

    There have been a couple of young teenage girl incidents recently: this one and two 15 or 16 year olds who offed themselves this week in a well-planned suicide. No reason for them to do it other than it was something to do - very strange indeed.

    That's always been a hard age to be, for girls and boys.
    Teenage brains are becoming full of massive amounts of knowledge so quickly, they can't always put the pieces in place; they can't yet possibly have any concept of how much they don't know, and sometimes there's just not enough experience to back up their judgments. Maybe those girls really don't yet know why they did it. They're gonna have a long hard time to think about it.
    I wonder if their parents had any idea the girls had dark thoughts and motivations.
    But then some adults never do quite get a grip on that either.

    As a parent of teenagers you see signs, but you try not to be paranoid because it is, as you point out, a difficult age. You know that signs of odd behaviour are really just low-level rebellion, and the more you push teenagers, the worse it gets.

    In these cases, I suspect the parents recognised the signs in hindsight.

    Jesus...what a story! It creeps me out how they were so cold and calculating about it. And the fact that they practiced on kittens...it's just sick.

    Wow, what a disturbing story. And to do that to a friend too! I don't understand what could 'feel right' about that.

    Execution is barbaric. You live in an enlightened country these days, so you can understand where we come from on this issue. Australia may be English speaking, but our values are a significantly more left-wing than what you would find in the US or Britain, and probably closer to where you live now.

    I was being facetious, cbrmale. Perhaps the tongue-sticking-out smiley didn't convey that very well.

    I agree that execution doesn't really accomplish anything apart from giving the families of the victims a sense of "closure" which does nothing to bring their murdered loved one(s) back. However, it's clear to me that those young ladies are very disturbed and should be institutionalized in a mental health facility.

    That's the assumption that most people make over here in Sweden, that anyone who commits murder is automatically insane. Sane people do not commit premeditated murder.

    So enlightened that people kill others for no other reason than they felt like it?

    I wish we had a time machine so I could send you to the early 1800s. Then you will see the true meaning of "barbaric". Then again, my father and some of my close family members are in jail for murder and the likes so I don't have much room to speak. I guess i'm desensitized.

    Execution is barbaric, and enlightened countries have moved on over the last fifty years or so.

    On the whole, our homicide rate is very low per capita by world standards, so this particular incident is just one of those things from two young women who are probably social psychopaths (ie insane).

    That sir, is an opinion. It's also an insinuation which I take offense at.

    And I disagree completely.

    Edit to add: And it's not 'enlightened' to judge other cultures for having policies that conflict with those on your own shore.

    People all around the world judge the behaviours of other cultures as they deem appropriate all of the time. We all know of examples of execution: China - putting a bullet into the back of the head, Saudi Arabia - public beheading, United States of America - various forms of execution.

    I abhor China's approach, and Saudi Arabia's approach, and the United States of America's approach.
