Before you read any of this you must remember. Children know what dead and murder means before the age of 11. So there is not such thing as Childrens Brains do not fully develope before 18 or 21. This is all bulshit. These kids that killed knew exactly knew what they were doing and should of gotten death or never see the light of day. People you must help and sign these partitions for these family's sakes and expecially Amy who never even made it to 16...she is sill dead and is still 14. While Jamie is aging in Jail.
Jamie Fuller was 16 when he lured his girlfriend, 14-year-old Amy Carnevale, to the rear of the Memorial Middle School in Beverly, where he stabbed her, slashed her throat and stomped on her head in August 1991. He then enlisted friends to help him dump Carnevale's body, weighted down with cinder blocks, in Shoe Pond.
“There are some crimes that are so abhorrent and so heinous a juvenile should be sentenced to life without parole,” said Blodgett. “We don’t charge first-degree murder unless the facts are so heinous and horrible that it warrants a first-degree charge.”
“We’re not talking about a kid stealing a car, or a drug rip-off,” said Blodgett. “We’re talking about kids committing some of the most heinous crimes you can imagine.”
The SJC also concluded that its decision would be applied retroactively and that the offenders will receive immediate parole eligibility if they have served at least 15 years — even as legislators discuss proposals to create a longer period of time for parole eligibility.
