    Teen sentenced to prison boot camp in firebombing of St. Louis-area
    Hindu temple
    ST. LOUIS (AP) - One of two teenagers charged in the
    firebombings of a suburban Hindu temple was sentenced Tuesday to
    four months in a prison boot camp.
    Nathaniel Conner, 17, pleaded guilty to second-degree arson and
    criminal possession of a weapon in the pre-dawn firebombings of the
    Hindu Temple of St. Louis on Feb. 23 and March 1.
    No one was injured in the attacks, which caused limited damage.
    Officials at the temple had speculated whether the attacks
    involved culprits who wrongly equated Hindus with Islamic
    extremists, or who believed they were targeting a Muslim mosque.
    Conner's attorney, J. Martin Hadican, said Tuesday the
    firebombings were "just two kids doing something dumb."
    "It had nothing to do with religious beliefs or political
    beliefs," Hadican said. "He feels very bad about the whole
    thing."
    Paul Laird, 17, is awaiting trial on identical charges.
    If Conner successfully completes the boot camp, he will be
    placed on probation for five years, Hadican said.

    Now that's an impressive move by the judicial system. Sets a standard, and things only get tougher from there. Good job, Missouri!

    Of course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong
