When you are 18 years old, you are well aware that beating someone with a baseball bat and golf club is a serious assault.
To beat some to the extent they are expected to die, is such a cruel act, I hope they aren’t shown any mercy by the court.

Prosecutors filed attempted-murder counts Monday against two teens accused of beating a developmentally disabled Boulder man with a baseball bat and golf club during a robbery last week — but said they likely will upgrade those charges because the 30-year-old victim isn’t expected to survive.
Austin Holford and Luke Pelham, both 18, were charged with second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault on an at-risk victim, aggravated robbery and first-degree burglary at their appearance in court at the Boulder County Jail.
At the hearing, Chief Deputy District Attorney Sean Finn said the victim, Aaron Tuneberg, likely will not survive his injuries.
“He is expected to pass away,” Finn said.
Tuneberg suffered serious head injuries after police said he was beaten unconscious at his apartment in the 5500 block of Arapahoe Avenue during the theft of an Xbox video game console on March 31.
