So your parents would just presume you were guilty ? Well they know you I guess.It would be both inappropriate and unethical of me to comment on this.
Perhaps, I was not clear enough about the point I was making. I was referring to the conduct of boy b's father; his disgraceful outbursts in the court and his refusal to accept that his son was guilty as sin. It would be natural to want to direct anger, hatred and possibly retribution upon that man, he is responsible for this crime too.
If I did this to another human-being my parents would disown me, not pay for an expensive lawyer and blame the Gardai.
I saw that, absolutely disgraceful. Then you have the case of male prisoners deciding that they identify as females and who are moved to female prisons where some of them go on to rape women.A case from England, though thankfully not involving murder.
A 13-year-old was raped in the toilets at an academy by a boy who had been moved from another school for raping two pupils, it has been reported. The girl’s dad said the boy had raped his “naïve” d…www.thesun.co.uk
There will be no new trial only legal reviews.This case more than any other deserves to be televised, like in a Judge Judy prog.
and for two reasons:
It has literally gripped the nation.
How can an member of the public judge the character of boy B from reading the mere transcript of his interview?
It doesn't take a smart-ass lawyer to pull holes in the prosecution's case.... such as
"How can one explain Boy B knowing that Ana was going to be murdered after he came and called to collect her just 20 minutes beforehand? "
"All he expected to happen was some snogging between boy A and Ana".
There is one other point. From the press we read that the Gardai knew that Boy B was present in the derelict building. They don't go on to say how the Gards know this or what they know.
But it seems the Gardai used this knowledge (or assumption?) to worm some sort of confession out of him.
Until Boy A spills the beans, gives his side of the story there's a question mark hanging over the case.
If he receives 20 years and Boy B recieves 6 months it might help loosen his tongue a bit... but then again Irish law is real convoluted and strange. It seems the testimony of each boy in the interviews cannot be used against the other fella) -- irish law!
Well two weeks or so from now we'll hear the verdicts (which I'm sure will be appealed) and then the big long wait for the next episode, .... jury selection etc., etc and media circus.
I hope that somehow Mrs & Mr Kriegel and family will be spared a second round of all this.
They should not be imprisoned together, they should be banned from communicating with one and other.They are currently being held in Oberstown and will serve their sentences in it.
Now I know the kids in there aren't saints. But is it safe to put these two in with them? A small number of female detainees are in Oberstown currently according to various media reports.
Guess the country should really have two youth detention centres for serious crimes. Yes it is worrying, Boy A on the far side of puberty and boy B still a child (physically speaking)They should not be imprisoned together, they should be banned from communicating with one and other.
