If you ever wonder why our society is going to hell in a handbasket, this story here might shed some light on it.
Two 14-year-old boys who were originally facing manslaughter charges in the bullying death of a 13-year-old child just received “community service” as their punishment.
No, we’re not kidding.
The young man they murdered was named Diego Stolz, and he lived in Moreno Valley, California.
He had been bullied by the same group of kids (2-4 boys) for years.
The family had filed countless complaints about the bullying, but nothing was ever done.
One day, the young man was cornered by the boys. Two of them – both 14-years-old – began hitting Diego in the face until he finally fell to the ground.
As he fell, he hit his head on a concrete pillar and went brain dead and died.
The two bullies were ordered to do 150 hours of community service and participate in rehab programs.
And that’s it.
The Riverside County District Attorney’s Office confirmed that “no further custody time was ordered.”
Two teenagers who pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in connection with the fatal assault of a 13-year-old at a California school have been sentenced to probation.
The 14-year-old boys were released to their parents’ custody after serving 47 days in juvenile hall, ordered to serve 150 hours of community service each, undergo therapy, and participate in a character-building program, Riverside County Superior Court Judge Roger Luebs ruled Friday.
The victim, Diego Stolz, 13, was beaten to death on September 16, 2019, at Landmark Middle School.
Diego was punched in the head from behind and then fell and hit his head on a pillar in the schoolyard, KTLA reported. The boys then continued to punch Diego. He died from head trauma nine days after the incident.
His attackers’ identities have not been made public because they are juveniles.
Although the district attorney and probation department were pushing for the teens to spend more time behind bars, Luebs said the required sentencing guidelines were that the least punitive measures be taken to promote rehabilitation.
Luebs added that the two teens were “directly responsible” for Diego’s death even without intending to kill him.
What kind of message is this sending to young people?
The left pushes anti-bullying, but then when some poor kid is actually murdered due to bullying, they shrug their shoulders and give out community service punishments.
And what is to stop these boys from doing worse to someone else, now that they know they can get away with murder?
