If his IQ was as low as they say it was, I would wonder if it were due to drug use and the lack of live cells in his brain-rather than a disability...why is it that when a crime is committed, its always after the fact they try and use the disability excuse..come on people-this man is a murderer no matter how its looked at!

I know none of the above people, but if I was Neville I would have done the same thing. How much of their bullying was he suppose to put up with???? The way I see it, if he didn't get them they were surely going to get him!!!

I also have a son I can,t imagine life without him wether he was in jail or wether he was on the other side of a knife.I really feel for his mom and dad like all parents we want the best for our children and I,m sure they done their best in raising him.But I did watch the news a few nights ago when a doctor took the stand and her comments were that his IQ was very low and that he was much on the level of a elementary child but that's no excuse for taking a life of another,my child knew even before he was school age that you don,t hurt others,you don,t hold a knife,gun or throw rocks at other people.There was a senseless act here a young man loss his life regardless what his education may be he should do his time. 20 years will give him the help he needs and will also educate him,he will still be a young man when he gets out hopefully his life will be turned around he has a second chance the other boy don,t have that it his mom and dad has to live without their son as do Neville,s parents but they will have their son again someday that,s if he keeps his nose clean.

Neville shed tears and stated they were his friends......wouldn't want to be this murderer's enemy.This is a good opportunity for our justice system to send a message and take back our society. 25 years before parole eligibility if I was the judge sentencing this guy. He has been in trouble with the law from day one. We'll see how tough this guy really is when he gets to the "big house". If Neville killed my son, going to jail would be his least worry.
