How Can They Be So Heartless?

So your prison sentence is "too hard"? Well, you fat fuck, you should have thought about that before you help beat a homeless man to death.

Cry me a river, you slope browed, fecal brained asshat.
One of the teenagers responsible for beating a Holly Hill homeless man to death asked a judge to reduce his 22-year prison sentence Monday. Warren Messner and three other teens pled guilty to killing the man because they were bored, but Messner said prison is too hard.
Bored? When you're bored you play video games. You go to a movie. You read a book. When you're a bored, sadistic sociopath I guess you kill people.

This piece of shit is learning that society will hold you responsible for your actions. Period. Society doesn't care if he fell in with a bad crowd. No one held a gun to his head and forced him to take another person's life.

Mom doesn't quite seem to get it.
Messner's parents broke down at the denial. His mother said it's unfair, that her son fell in with a bad crowd and prison is killing him.

"He's not getting the mental health, the schooling. He's not getting anything, anything but locked in a cell all day long," Lori Messner said.
If it does kill him, she'll be the only one to shed a tear. Some people seem to be under the impression that the primary goal of a prison is rehabilitation. Bullshit. For centuries the reason for prison is that same as it is now. It is, in fact, to punish criminals.

Yes, there are rehabilitation programs in prisons. But you have to earn them. They are not a right, nor are they the primary mission of prisons. The mission of a prison is twofold. One is to deprive the convicted of freedom. The second, which happily coincides with the first, is to remove the convicted from society as whole. This boy has been excised from the public like the cancer he is.

Fair has nothing to do with it. If things were fair, that human being he helped execute would be alive today.
