Zoom Picture Santo Domingo.– Authorities sentenced fiive teenagers to three to five years in prison after finding them guilty of killing seven taxi drivers and seriously injuring two others by forcing most of them to drink drain cleaner.

The teenagers, who ranged in ages from 15 to 17 and included two girls, used guns to assault the drivers in April and steal money from them. Two of the drivers were fatally shot and the others were forced to drink drain cleaner.

Authorities said the teens also doused the bodies with drain cleaner to prevent them from being identified. The victims' relatives had demanded the five be treated as adults and serve up to 30 years in prison, the maximum penalty allowed.

    Yea, from that article something aint right.

    If it wasn't premeditated murder and spur of the moment because of the robberies than I see where the system only gave them 3-5.

    But having the drain cleaner and dousing the drivers in it afterward to me shows planning.


    Should definitely be tried as adults, given life sentences, and executed.

    That's ridiculous........they must be connected to some high powered gang that has influence over politicians and court systems.

    This is one of the worst stories I've read about this year, to make someone drink bleach is pure evil. They should be electrocuted to death, and at best, hung while on fire.

    unlike america, a lot of countries are not just concerned wit looking people up and throwing away the key. they are still minors and those are the sentencing guidelines for children. that being said, if prisons/justice system worked more on rehabilitation and not just incarceration, there'd be way less people locked up and less re-offenders.

    also, if someone commited a crime the day they turned 18, would they be able to say, "charge me as a minor, i was a minor yesterday", no because it doesn't matter about yesterday, today he/she is an adult. i use that same reasoning on people who are always gung-ho about tryin minors as adults. if they are minors charge them as such, end of story
    doesn't exist in DR prison ....you just locked up behind a fence and do what you want basically until head count and lunch...oh plus we get entertainment from different groups.....more like a crazy house instead of punishment
    ............but thats the best case scenario that u stated especially for juveniles....only thing with this case they killed 7 taxi drivers and use drano....its hard to romance the idea of them becoming priests doctors and lawers after "rehabiliation

    i know that some situations are very grave, but i'm really against trying minors as adults, cuz no on would ever try an adult as a minor.

    Temporary insanity would be like trying an adult as a minor.

    The thing is, trying a minor as an adult is because the minor knew what they were doing. They planned and committed a crime. They weren't just sitting around a house playing with a gun and it accidentally goes off.

    There's a difference between trying a 15 year old who planned and executed a murder as an adult and saying a 35 year old man wasn't old enough to know better, in which case he would be considered crazy and could try to use the T.I. thing as an excuse.

    maybe then sentencing should be determined on a case by case basis, cuz what's the point of having a juvenile justice system when they can still get tried as adults?

    I agree with you there.

    The Juvenile system is only there because it has the potential on certain cases to generate more money than a regular system.
