Lol at all the arrogant self righteous Russians bashing Americans. Nothing constructive comes from your negative opinionated comments. I feel like you're repeating what Putin says. That's a good role model! Take your frigid jealous radioactive asses to drown in the black sea unless you can supply constructive factual scholarly comments. Not every American is the same and your ignorant assumptions of Americans idea, personalities, and ways are skewed. Grow up, your words cant change American influence. Its really easy to bash and blame others, especially as a whole.

In order for a murder charge to stick, the death must be an immediate and proximate result of the act. Typically, immediate means within three years and a day. The cause of death is only indirectly associated with the original stroke at best. The family of the victim does deserve justice, but not at the expense of justice itself.

I love your american justice. In mother Russia we don't punish children and that is a bad thing.

All children should know that they will be punished when they grow up, just like in America.

Ho pefully our children will get anguish and commit suicide, like american children.

Stupid Americans.

The crime was preformed by a 13 year old boy, doesn't matter if he's 30 or 89 today.

The crime is horrible but it was performed by a kid.

What's next, suing for cancer from toxins in the 60's?

Or maybe convincing for murder of adults that commits suicide because they were bullied in high school?

Stu pid Americans.


. Btw, thanks for liberating Ukraine from people elected oligarch, these new oligarchs that are not elected by the people are much better. Not,

Crazy.....the circumstances at the time were definitely different and the mind of a thirteen year old is easily persuaded and manipulated. Probably there wasn't any attempt for murder. Most likely, when adult, the sense of right and wrong is more evolved.

  

You're telling me a 13-year-old didn't know that when he soaked a boy in gasoline and set him on fire that death could result, and that the intent wasn't to kill him?!? That's insane, of course he knew and of course that's what he was trying to do. And you're saying that he didn't know it was wrong to do this?!!

I can't believe what I just read, gasoline and boy 8 on his birthday, if I was the parent of the boy, blood bath to start and the worse would come later, in seconds later.

If true I say that sounds about right .. A Thirteen year old knows the difference between right and wrong so should pay even if that means retrial at a later date. I imagine the victim suffered in every way possible and deserves justice even if that justice appears unorthodox.
