Four teenagers beat a graduate student from China to death with a baseball bat during a Los Angeles crime spree, police said Tuesday.


Jonathan Del Carmen, 19, Andrew Garcia, 18, Alberto Ochoa, 17, and Alejandra Guerrero, 16, were charged with the capital murder of Xinran Ji.

Ji, 24, was a graduate student studying engineering at the University of Southern California. Investigators said the four attempted to rob him as he walked home from a study group just after midnight Thursday.

Ji returned to his apartment after the assault and died there. His roommate later discovered the body.

Investigators said that Ochoa, Garcia and Guerrero tried to rob a man and woman in Dockweiler Beach after the Ji attack.

The man was able to get away and summon police, and Guerrero and a 14-year-old girl were arrested.

The other three were arrested later and their vehicle seized. They became suspects in Ji's killing when detectives investigating the Dockweiler Beach robbery noticed the vehicle's description matched one put out by their colleagues.

Police have said they believe the 14-year-old was involved in the attack on Ji, although they are unsure of her role.

Del Carmen and Garcia could face the death penalty, although prosecutors have made no decision on seeking it. Guerrero and Ochoa could be sentenced to life with no parole.

All of them are Hispanic, probably from a Latino gang.

Very sad story, I hope they get the maximun punishment in jail.


Denial, according the psychoanalysts, is one of the most primary mechanisms of defense. It consists in the attitude of denying or minimizing obvious facts of reality with which the individual can´t  cope or whose irresponsibility is unable to meet.

And I agree.

How much is this going to cost the tax payers if these criminals are kept for life in jail?

Let's take the case of the 18 year old one as an example. Life in prison with no parole means the guy will be there at least until he is 70. That's 52 years. At current costs in the USA, an inmate can cost the tax payers anything  close to $2000 a month. This means for 52 years at least the state will have to fork  out $ 1,248,000! This without counting legal costs, medical costs and others.

The price of 22 caliber bullet?: $0.50!

Total saving for all the society?: $1,247,999.50 plus one scumbag less!

You ask me? I'd pay $2 and go for the bullets!

West believes that criminals should be given rewards, not punishment.  Personally, I would throw all criminals into the Grand Canyon: splash.

These brutes deserve a solid reeducation with the help of hard labour, sparse food, basic living ...

I don't think American prisons have protection, just general population, they will suffer for the rest of their lives
