Today Sri Lanka has detonated to the lowest depth. There is no discipline. Who is responsible?

Yes you are correct, find the gun maker and the customer who wanted to buy (Should be a Underworld gangster with political background), they are the real criminals.

Well its time for the government to offer a price for unauthorized guns kept near public and other harmful weapons I think : )

Dirty politicians ruined over society. All the uneducated thugs went to parliament and behaved as beast. The younger generation followed them. This is the result!

He will be pardoned by the President and may be a future cabinet minister.

Even if we nip the bud we will not solve the problem this child is tool for some other persons gain please get to the root of this issue and not penalize an innocent kid. If at all we should educate these children and protect these kids.

If Mervin can walk around with Guns , why not others. In Sri Lanka only the good guys are unarmed. all criminals are very well armed. I know a minister's son got down a machine pistil he was only 19 at that time.

In my point of view , in a country like Sri Lanka arresting under-age school goers should be banned by law as it may cause bad effects on such ones future . there must be another way to deal with unlawful acts like this. However , torturing is a tactic practice as the easy way by badly trained un-clever police men but never in UK or USA.

Is the father a deputy minister?

Something is wrong with the society he is living in. May be he is a son of a poor family. We must punish the wrong doing people in this society. Anyway we must rehabilitate these youngsters. By putting them to the jail is not going to solve the problem, only aggravate. We all know why. So I think solution is let these kids/ youth get some education & deciplene in the rehabiltation centres (or some kind prison) where no chance of associating adult kirimanals.
