Killing for Fun

I just read an article this morning online about a group teens in Oklahoma who randomly shot and killed an Australian collage student and claim they did it "for the fun of it". All I can think of is, what is wrong with these kids? 



"...Charged with first-degree murder are Chancey Allen Luna, 16, and…
