>Four boys and a girl have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder after a 13-year-old boy was stabbed to death in Reading. Oliver Stephens, known as Olly, was pronounced dead at Bugs Bottom fields, Emmer Green, on Sunday. The five teenagers, all aged 13 or 14, remain in custody, according to Thames Valley Police.

A 13 year old girl paying for her boyfriend to get stabbed to be taught a lesson after he was mad about her sending nudes to other people. I'm pretty sure at that age I was still playing with Pokémon.

What is the world coming to when a national news story of today is more extreme than the life of some person picked at random, from twenty years ago?

I hadn't realised Reading was so rough until now but there's been a few stories like this over the years. Bet they weren't social distancing either.

Sadly I'm not as shocked. Used to teach a few years ago and even then year 7s were leaking each other's nudes and shit. The youth are doomed.

I always expected kids to get more clued on about this sort of thing. When I was in college, we're talking about 2004 here, a lass meant to send a video of her fingering herself to her boyfriend via Bluetooth but sent it to someone else by mistake and it spread around like wildfire. It's still the pinkest fanny I've ever seen, like she'd put bleach on her flaps or something.

What?

Also I live in the area, Reading really isn't rough. Not sure it deserves the second spot in the UK 'best places to live' ranking though. I suppose like a lot of places it has a few council estates that concentrate the worst people in the surrounding county and produce cases like this.

There were kids this rough and fucked up when I was that age over a decade ago, but they existed as sort of a subculture beyond everyone else, even the more "normal" hard lads gave them a wider berth, which I assume is still the case. I think the chap who threw a kitten against a wall until it died could definitely have murdered someone for a laugh, quite possibly he has, I wouldn't know, I'm not on Facebook.

At 14 I was a drug dealer carried a butterfly knife and also played Pokémon. Sex would probably have been good currency if I could ever get a hold of any, back then it was like hen's teeth.

Teenagers are the worst people in society never forget that.

I find it a bit odd how people act so surprised that kids are involved with sex and so on at this age though. Weren't we all? I had a veritable harem of MSN messenger slags to swap grainy webcam nudes with at that age. How sheltered are these people that they think it doesn't happen?

Getting the fella merked is a bit extreme, but again not entirely surprising. At that age teenagers are just getting to grips with an adult-like agency and power to actually make choices and influence the world around them, but being so inexperienced in life, they almost totally lack an understanding of consequence, much less empathy and guilt.

I remember kids being absolute bastards to one another when I was that age, even if we were still quite heavily invested in Spongebob Squarepants. It's that age where you pretended to be harder and more grown up than you were by listening to music with swearing in it and sneaking a ciggy on the back of the school bus, but you'd still get your mum to buy you Yu-Gi-Oh cards.

I lost my virginity at 14 and was doing stuff before then, see also drinking in the park or the 'cool mums' house, smoking bad weed, chucking rocks at trains - I can't say I felt the need to stab anyone, or have anyone stabbed, but I grew up in the suburbs so that's almost certainly why, I simply had less exposure to yoot gang culture.

We did find the anarchist's cookbook and make a few glass bottle bombs - we might not have killed anyone other than ourselves, but I'm sure someone would have tutted over the article and mused that they just played hopscotch at that age if we had.

Teenagers don't understand consequence, empathy or guilt? Where do you get this nonsense from? Babies have been shown to understand empathy and guilt. What? You hit 18 and then just get the empathy upgrade turned on? How stupid of you, lad. With people like you around, I am not so surprised that kids are stabbing ach other.

So why else do you think there are age of consent laws for fucking, driving, drinking, gambling and everything in between? They lack the rational mental capacity of an adult.

Teenagers have fairly similar cognitive function to adults, but they have grossly poorer executive control. They can think perfectly rationally when they're calm, but they're really bad at regulating their emotions and making rational decisions in the heat of the moment. They don't just do stupid things, they do things that they know to be stupid even while they're doing them.

Anyone who has raised teenagers or taught in a secondary school will recognise this immediately. You can have a rational conversation with a teenager about why they did something, they'll fully recognise that they shouldn't have done it, but when you ask them why they did it, their answer is a sullen and slightly shame-faced "I dunno".

The neurological answer is that the systems in their brain responsible for impulse control don't fully develop until their mid-20s. The voice in their head that says "don't do that, someone might get hurt" works quite reliably, but it's very quiet and very easily drowned out by emotion.

I'd say for most people it hasn't fully activated until their mid 20s, for some people it never does. We all know it's an entirely arbitrary line, but there's no need to go much lower than where it is, unless you have some very particular reasons to want to.

Did anyone here actually avoid picking up on anything like this? I wasn't sheltered, but I didn't live in Stabton-upon-Grim either.

I have similar MSN memories and I was still painting Warhammers and playing Halo at a similar age to the non-.gs people talked about ITT. A girl in my year was pregnant and gave birth at 15, I'm 90% certain I overheard some fingering in year 10 English once (I never should have been in Set 3, the fuckers), someone got nicked for selling MCAT and an older boy punched me as I walked home one night which his cousin said was because he was on ketamine but I think he was just a pycho. I think this kind of hooliganism was more boredom realted than deprivation induced, but I'd call it at 65/35. Anyway, the long and the short is that I never understand people who are shocked at teenagers doing mental things nor the post-war decisions to build housing with no other social or community provisions.

In fact thinking about it I'm still painting Warhammers, playing Halo I just don't have MSN anymore, so something appears have gone terribly wrong.

Funny you should mention that, my great-grandad lied about his age so he could go and fight in the Boer war when he was 15. Guts 'n' glory and all that. No idea what happened otherwise but he came back alive and we won the war so go gramps.

Maybe we can agree that it's a continuum. There are teenagers who are switched on enough at 18 that they're quite reasonable and responsible young people, and there are those who still shoplift at age 30 to fuel a drug habit.

Personally, I think it has a lot to do with when in life you start having to bear the consequences of your own actions. One of my friends moved out from her parents when she was 16, and at 21, 22 maybe, she was much more self reliant and decidedly more of an adult than somebody who was still in grad school at 25.

A lot of reckless teenage behaviour IMO can be explained through the disconnect between stupid actions and their adverse consequences, because your parents will bail you out when you screw up, and you can go on to do the next stupid thing, safe in the knowledge that they will protect you yet again.
