You people are aware you’re talking about a couple of 12-year olds. They are children. Whether they planned it or not, what really is insane is trying them as adults. They definitely need therapy – whether they’re declared insane or not and they definitely need to be punished and helped, but they DON’T need to sit in the prison for the rest of their lives!

kujiwuji, are you kidding me??? the def need to be tried as adults. They clearly know right from wrong especially in a decision to kill someone. I mean come on we are not talking about decisions of college its a decision of taking someones life. don’t be a fool. If you also look at some if not most cases where kids are tried as juvenile most of them repeat offend and end up in jail. I want to know what the parents were like, what the home life was like. how they raised the child because children are products of there environment. so please spare the BS they didn’t know difference from right and wrong and especially fiction vs non fiction. my daughter is 8 and she knows the difference. come on.

This is ridiculous how can anyone be sure she didn’t take advice from some lunatic on the internet who told her to pretend she was insane to escape a conviction? We don’t! This two girls planned this!! If she gets off for a mental disability, this girl could be free in a couple of years like if none of this happened!

she is the farthest thing from mentally incompetent! she knew exactly what she was doing and had been planning it for months!
as fa as transferring her to “a more appropriate facility” ….. what could be more appropriate place for an attempted murder than police custody?
if she did end up under mental supervision, i hope the state is smart enough to make it only until she is 18….after that she should be made to serve her sentence in full.

shanna, I totally agree the pre meditation in this matter also speaks volumes to validate no insanity. they even looked up how to get a away with killing someone. 12 year olds can be deceptive so how do we know she is not playing us all. maybe she read in her research to act the way she acting.

Yeah jail isn’t going to help this young kid they keep throwing them into jails instead of getting them mental help.The parent’s knew this girl was infatuated with slender man that’s when they should have gotten her help.

Exactly. There are people that really have to be locked up in jails, but then there are others – like in this case – where locking them up for the remainder of their lives won’t solve anything. These are children we’re talking about – that seems to be escaping many of the commenters here and elsewhere. I can’t believe that there are so many people on the internet ready to condemn a couple of 12 year olds to pretty much die in jail … that’s horrible. To me, that’s almost as horrible as the stabbing itself …

She thought she was going to live with slender man. She even had pictures of her family to take with her since she would never see them again. When you can’t distinguish fantasy from reality, you have mental health issues. Something wasn’t clicking with this 12 year old child and she needs HELP. Prison is only going to make her worse and then release her in society…. It’s not about good and evil, sometimes parts of the brain aren’t firing correctly. The whole idea behind what they did signifies serious mental issues.

Yes! And two doctors have already declared her incapable to stand trial. They obviously know more than all of these insane commenters that think their opinion is worth more than the judgment of a professional psychiatrist. The stabbing was horrendous, but it didn’t just happen out of thin air … these girls were seriously deluded and not thinking normally … putting them away for life (it really is for life) won’t solve a thing. It will just make the US a bit more inhumane of a society …

these doctors that you speak of are for the defense and anyway she is competent as of now. some mental health professions are not so mentally sound either and are advised to be processing a judgment on the benefit of who hired them. stop being naive. if you hear other stories of doctors or social workers not involved in case who have seen hundreds of twelve year olds in bad situations or dysfunctional family life agree that they are capable of making a decision that killing someone is wrong.

It’s always being thrown in that someone is insane!
No. Don’t think she was. She KNEW what she was doing!!

Anyone that believes in a legend like the Slender Man and then goes on a stabbing spree is by definition ‘mental.’ No sane person will do something like that. Plus she is a child. She’s probably just entered puberty.
