  1. all efforts must be made to give these chap fair trials whether it be together or separate and if the evidence is there to prove them guilty, the all should be sent away for a very long time and they must spend 2/3 of each day they spend as wards of the state doing hard labor. every day they must be reminded of their crimes and live to regret what they did by putting them through the most rough and adverse conditions there is behind bars.
