I think life in prison would be appropriate for such a young man to give time to reflect and find redemption.

Excellent news. The sooner the better. Not a tear will drop anywhere.

Rest in Peace to the poor, innocent mother and father. Their poor daughter will never recover from that.

Letting him "rot in prison" as people like to call it for the rest of his days is more of a lesson than giving him a way out.

No one wants to see some ones life taken away!! , but in this case killing the parents then setting the house on fire was indeed an evil act and the judge in this case just could not handles it any other way.

Can one death cancel out another?

He was just a kid; he probably does not remember what he was doing.

Hang the demented psychopath and all his ilk worldwide - 'High' no mercy for this kind of human trash.

I am against the death penalty for multiple moral reasons despite the crime, it’s barbaric.

Everybody knows only the little guys get a noose, rarely the real mass killers of our world. This young man should be given a chance to rehabilitate and redeem himself for his thoughtless and impulsive act of violence committed as a minor. Remember that Christian-stalker-hunter who reformed after hearing the voice of God and was later canonized? Not all souls can be saved, but Endo deserves one last chance. Too bad the kind of people in positions of power are so lacking in empathy for those disadvantaged from childhood and condemned to live less privileged lives than they.
