Sword Killer

Morne Harmse hugs his father in the Johannesburg High Court, 31 August 09 before the resumption of his trial, he has plead guilty to murder after he attacked and killed a fellow school pupil with a samurai sword last year. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison.I think that everyone involved in this case are victims , its really an unfortunate incident that was brought on by school yard bullying and the helplessness that the small Morne must have felt, but bringing a samurai sword and chopping the bully up, is a bit over the top. All the family's dirty laundry was brought up during the trial and they were shown to be bad parents, but from what I seen they stood by him the entire trial, and its them I feel really bad for.
