  1. You should delete this article, child offenders deserve a chance to serve a sentence and pay for their crimes without being identifiable for life and since they have now been arrested this post is also in contravention of Australian law.

  2. Please remove picture the picture of these boys, the photos are not allowed to be published as per the Australian courts requirements.
