30 years. Under the British justice system, a 14 yr old got 20 years for a murder that he denies ever committing and that no DNA evidence has substantiated.
i personally believe that the british justice system is also barbaric in many ways.
but theres a gulf of difference between 12 and 14 (which smartass is going to say 13?) - plus the 12 year old was on mood changing drugs, and the crime in scotland which i assume your speaking of was very much different to this.

A gulf? There are only two legal gulfs. Juvenile or Adult. In both the US case and the UK case the judge past the minimum sentence possible.

- plus the 12 year old was on mood changing drugs
Are you suggesting the American jurors and justice system intentionally failed to hear or take into account any necessary medical evidence?

and the crime in scotland which i assume your speaking of was very much different to this.
In what way?

Never self-diagnose kids! There could be a whole host of factors you are unaware of which only a qualified medic can guide you upon. (That's the mantra told to all first year medicine students.)

As I said previously, this drug is not licensed for children.

"The safety and effectiveness of (Zoloft) in children below the age of 18 have not been established".

I rest my case.

From the source:

Pfizer Inc., the manufacturer of Zoloft, said in a statement after the verdict: “Zoloft didn’t cause his problems, nor did the medication drive him to commit murder. On these two points, both Pfizer and the jury agree.”

It's also possible that he wasn't taking his meds, which is why he killed his grandparents.

Since the kid was smart enough to try to frame someone else, it suggests he was capable of sound reasoning.........To me, he's guilty, as charged.

While on this subject, any thoughts on the marine who is charged with two counts of premeditated murder for killing two insurgents in the Sunni triangle.

60 years for a 12 year old another indication of the barbaic nature of some states in america and there criminal justice system.
30 years. It's a concurrent sentance.

Tony Martin was jailed for shooting the burglar because he is a bloody idiot and shot the guy in the back as he was exiting through a window. Even in America you'll find yourself in very hot water if you shoot someone in the back.
indeed. its the only reason i didn't support him. if he had gunned down the guy as he was stalking around the house, then i would be a lot more sympathetic to his cause

i thought sentences run back to back in america, not concurrently

I'm entitled to my oppinion regardless of evidence, or is that no longer allowed? Neither of us are privy to the evidence, so we cannot comment on that. We do know the sentance which was passed, and I answered the questions the original poster asked in regards to this. May I remind you that this is D&D.
Opinions are a bit like *******s really; everyone has one.
