    This is ridiculous. It is well past time to overturn the law that allows murderers to hide their identity. Killers should be exposed so that law abiding citizens may know who they are. In this day and age, a 17 year old is mature enough to be held responsible for their actions as an adult.

    It's for crimes like these the death penalty should be brought back. No investigation needed, perps caught red handed coming out of the house with the gun in their hand.
