There is no death penalty in Canada, and the juveniles can't be identified...

Of the seventeen suspects, five are juveniles -- there's been little info about them -- However, I got the impression that some of these juveniles may also be (unfortunately) converts to Islam. (in Canada, the identities of juvenile offenders is protected). One adult has been identified as having been raised in a Hindu family and converting to Islam. Canada doesn't have the death penalty...I think the real culprit is the "Imam" (or the Islamic prayer leader) -- the adult responsible for leading juveniles astray -- this is the fellow (if found guilty) who should be getting a harsher sentence than any of the others...
