We had a case in Jonesboro, Arkansas where two boys--an 11-year-old and a 13-year-old--cold-bloodedly shot and killed several classmates and a teacher. They stole guns from one the boy's grandparents and took them on school grounds. One boy pulled the fire alarm and when the students filed out, they opened fire on them. I believe this was in '98.

Because of their age, they too received a slap on the wrist and both are now free. The difference is, neither was given a secret ID and protected by the govt. One was later arrested on weapons charges as a teen or young adult. I'm not sure what has since happened to the other. Nobody has tried to kill them or exact any revenge that I know of. They are as free as anyone else. But they are not protected. They have to live with the consequences of what they did. If someone kills them then someone kills them--boo-hoo.

Yes, I would have executed them on their 18th birthdays but that's just me. Why don't I go kill them now? Because I'm not the law. If I was, they'd be dead.
