They should be prosecuted and their actions noted on their school transcripts since it happened on school property to hurt their chances of employment in the future.

what is the matter with people these days? are they all insane or just sick??????
regardless of the reasons for their as to why they are like this, I think it's time we we really forced the legal profession to give very very severe punishments followed up by counseling and psychiatric help perhaps?
But must admit when I see this kind of horrible cruelty I just want the abusers to be publicly named and shamed, publicly flogged and then an investigation into the family members/parents because i don't believe normal happy balanced children grow up with such cruel thoughts intentions and actions!!!!

this is so disgusting!! to allow those people to walk free after such abuse is a crime in itself.. these people should not be allowed to complete their studies or if they are allowed then this incident should go on all their records so that when they apply for jobs their employers may see just what type of people they are hiring.. the poor monkey was probably just looking for something to eat and instead got beaten to death... breaks my heart that their are such neanderthals out there who calim to be human yet carry on like this.. prosecute them to the full extent of the law let them know what its like to have their lives taken from them so brutally!!!

Signed and noted. Such a shame for that poor monkey, but I think those students need to be severly punished! Kicked out of school with the reason being published in college newsletters. Then jail and heavy fines. Who will be their next victim? A neighbor's child? Then it's too late.

Signed and noted. Immanuel Kant stated, "We can judged the heart of a man by his treatment of animals." How SAD that this has transpired. These students should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. If left unpunished, these students will continue this brutality that may lead to hurting women and children. EDUCATION is the key!!!!!

"To a man whose mind is free there is something even more intolerable in the sufferings of animals than in the sufferings of man. For with the latter it is at least admitted that suffering is evil and that the man who causes it is a criminal. But thousands of animals are uselessly butchered every day without a shadow of remorse. If any man were to refer to it, he would be thought ridiculous. And that is the unpardonable crime."
