By the sounds of it, a nasty prank gone horribly wrong.
What the frick is wrong with people? Who throws a bomb at another kid?
I know that there is two sides to every story, but I am yet to hear a side of a story that justifies throwing a lethal weapon at a young kid with the apparent intent of causing harm.
Catching a golf ball has now changed the life of this kid forever.

This incident is really sad & heartbreaking. According to the mother of the boy (Who has autism), he was being bullied by these kids. So sad.

'Some consequences'?!!?!? Some consequences!! The delinquent should be charged and sent to juvenile detention for intention to cause grievous bodily harm!!! What a disgusting despicable stupid thing to do to someone else, especially a child. If that were my child... Well lets just say the kid who did it wouldn't be carrying anything again either!!!!

I honestly cannot comprehend what kind of thoughts must be running through the minds of this kid's parents.
He has Aspergers, and only attends high school 3 days a week, which indicates to me that he was having a hard time before this. Add to that the claim that he had been bullied. I would be livid. I would be demanding serious action.
If I were the parent of the person who gave him the ball, I would be so ashamed of my son. Disgusting.

The little sh!t that did this was old enough to know the concequences of his actions, and was old enough to know how to make the bomb, therefore In my opinion he s old enough to do time in prison.

I agree totally with what everyone has said.
I'm a little confused by the article though. In one paragraph he says he bought the ball thinking it was heroin for the cost of a cigarette and after the transaction he was playing with the ball and throwing it in the air several times before it exploded then further down it says they just threw it to him and it exploded.
As I said I agree totally these boys need to be given harsh consequences, even if they thought it really was heroin and that story is true which i doubt it is. I'm just a little confused in the wording.

Young people these days can be so cruel they think actions such as this are funny. Sure they may be regretting it now but I can imagine if there hadn't been such horrific consequences they would still be laughing.
It's horrible and disgusting it makes me so sad. If I was the parent of that poor boy I would be beyond furious. I just hope the ones responsible are punished appropriately and not just given a slap on the wrist.

Mmm... That article is truly confusing. Its sad (however it happened) that a young boy lost his hands and that his life will now be even more challenging.
I'm sure police will investigate this further, I doubt this ball was 'found', IMO it was made and someone at that table know what it was, maybe they didn't make it with the intention of it being that destructive, nevertheless consequences should fit the crime.
and I must stay (having been bullied myself) I would do everything possible to take my child out of a situation where they're bullied, IMO there's no solution there's no stopping it with reason a bully will not stop and its a dangerous game.
