Teens who tortured cat by setting it on fire could face up to 25 years in prison. Too tough or a necessary punishment? I say way to go for such strict punishment. They are old enough to know what they were doing, and whose to say they would stop at animal cruelty?

I really agree with NovermberLove on this one. For the same reasons that she listed, I find these cases horribly heartbreaking. I know of someone who @ 19 drank alcohol and got drunk for the 2nd or 3rd time in his entire life, attempted to drive his girlfriend home and killed her and almost himself in a DUI accident. He got out on parole when he was 27, with no job skills and unable to function outside of an institution. It's so sad, two lives distroyed over a few moments of bad choices. Upon reading the story, I have to say it sounds like Cooper has a history of making bad choices, it probably would be smart to throw the book at him to save his future victims from crimes he will most likely commit.

I didn't follow the case, but if they showed no remorse and were willing to do this again~ then it was probably fair.
