Jeez he's just a 14 year old kid. I agree that what he did was wrong but people here are suggesting the death penalty? That I cannot agree on. I think his sentence should be less harsh than what the majority of users are posting here. Plus the Japanese school system/society is more intense and strict than most other countries' school systems. Not saying the kid should get off without a penalty but a week of jail should suffice. At that age being put in jail too long will destroy any prospects he has to become a positive member of society.
