This is an absolutely horrific incident.  I  am at a loss as to what could be done with the perpetrator. It's hard though for me to imagine how such a person could ever fit into society and it does bring out the instinct for severe retribution.

And, for a considered assessment:
Yes, in the context that 96.2% sounds small but in evolutionary terms it is hugely different, more difference than exists between a human and a cheetah,

The main driver is that at some recent time SARS-CoV-2 it became zoonotic, and the most likely mechanism is wet markets as has been the case with any number of recent novel virus. They detect many but of course most are not harmful, it's the right combination of features that turn them deadly.

Hard to know, 20 to life is probably about right, but you do not want a jail harden 37 year old walking out of the system so perhaps life.

This is something society struggles with, also I think 17 might be beyond kid(child), in some countries you can legally drive at 16. Here in Oz parents can't stop someone that age leaving home and they can legally sue parents as well, or have and retain children.

So I don't see how they can pick and choose the side of the ledger, if they want freedom surely it comes at a price, which is the risk of loss of liberty that is the burden carried by all adults.
