Actually, I think it was the attorney who said that:

"A third boy is represented by attorney John Schmocker.

"He's a normal boy. This is not a monster or a disturbed child," he said. "I'm more disturbed by people's greater concern for fish than for people being killed."

"You know what strikes me is, they're only 13. They're immature, and they're really facing adult consequences," he said. "It was juvenile mischief rather than anything darker."

I wonder, supposing Mr. Schmocker had pets and these same juveniles one night jumped the fence into his back yard and mercilessly hacked up his dogs and left them to die, would he say the same thing? The fact that he characterizes the actions by the juveniles as mere "mischief" reflects his ignorance of the psychopathological nature of their actions and what they could evolve into down the road should these kids continue on the same path.
