What is this case?
This is a senseless, useless, purposeless, motiveless act of two
boys. Now, let me see if I can prove it. There was not a particle of hate,
there was not a grain of malice, there was no opportunity to be cruel except
as death is cruel,--and death is cruel.
There was absolutely no purpose in it all, no reason in it all,
and no motive in it all.
