An Oregon teenager who carved a swastika into another teen’s forehead while he and others tortured the boy after luring him to a shed has been sentenced to 11 years in prison, according to KATU

[su_center_ad]On Thursday, 16-year-old Blue Kalmbach told the victim in a quiet voice that he was sorry for his actions.

“I’m appalled at what I did,” Kalmbach said.

Kalmbach was the last of four teenagers to be sentenced in the case. The victim told police after the February attack that he was struck in the back of the head with a crowbar as he entered the shed.

Kalmbach then allegedly shot the victim in the hand, chest and groin with a BB gun, hit him with a bat then proceeded to carve a “swastika-shaped insignia” into the victim’s forehead with a box cutter. After all of that, they forced him to eat cat feces.

Police and prosecutors say the teens spent the evening before the attack sketching out ideas for torturing the victim, according to KATU.

The perpetrators were upset with the victim, who they considered to be a bully, because he called another student “gay” on Facebook.

With bangs covering his forehead, the 16-year-old victim did not address the court.  The victim’s mother said the scar has mostly healed, but her son has nightmares.

    Horrible! :'(

    The perps should be kept under psychiatric evaluation for years to come, aside from any time they serve.

    He’ll come out much better for it, because there’s no neo nazi’s where he’s going!

    Put this kid in jail for 11 years and a true monster will be created.

      I’d say he’s already a sociopath. There’s no cure for that.

      • Suzanne McFly August 21st, 2014 at 7:09 pm

        If that is diagnosis then I would prefer there was a mental hospital that could him and work with him for the 11 years rather than keep him locked in a cage then release him on to society.

        • M D Reese August 21st, 2014 at 11:19 pm

          There is no cure. It’s forever. All they learn from treatment is how to fool the system again.

    • RioBravoHombre August 21st, 2014 at 6:38 pm

      Fine. We’ll house him with YOU for 11 years.

      • Suzanne McFly August 21st, 2014 at 7:11 pm

        That is a brilliant reply, how long did you have to sit there and think of your response? Did you first practice writing out your thoughts in your coloring book with your Crayola’s?

        • RioBravoHombre August 21st, 2014 at 7:32 pm

          No, It only took seconds.

    I blame his undoubtedly liberal, hippie, homo-loving parents.

    • Suzanne McFly August 21st, 2014 at 7:18 pm

      He carved a swastika genius, Nazi’s are a far right wing organization. That means opposite of liberal hippies, but that was cute. Is it past your bed time yet? You should put your daddy’s computer away and go curl up with your Ayn Rand book and dream your sweet little dreams about rush limpballs.

        Perhaps you should check my comment history and recalibrate your sarcasm tricorder. Have a great day, friend!

        • Suzanne McFly August 21st, 2014 at 7:43 pm

          It helps to alert people to a sarcastic comment, there are a lot of people on this site and I do not assume they know when I am being sarcastic so I include a simple “/s” to show I mean no harm. Sorry about the misunderstanding friend 🙂

          • RioBravoHombre August 21st, 2014 at 10:07 pm

            In my past, I’ve done standup comedy…sarcasm/snark tags detract from quality funny.

          • Suzanne McFly August 21st, 2014 at 10:24 pm

            I will promise to try to remember next time, I know most posters here share the same views as I do, but nuts love to come out to stir up stuff and insert ignorance every once in awhile.

          • RioBravoHombre August 21st, 2014 at 10:34 pm

            It pays to check the comment history, when in doubt. No harm, my friend. I was raised by idiot, moran racist nutjobs, so I am able to do a SPOT ON impression of their “thinking.”

        • Anomaly 100 August 21st, 2014 at 8:20 pm

          It’s hard to tell around here sometimes. We get the strangest comments:-)

          • tiredoftea August 21st, 2014 at 8:51 pm

            Not really! It’s just the strange people behind them.

            I sometimes lose track myself.

    • fahvel August 22nd, 2014 at 9:37 am

      the nearest you come to your socalled name is rio – you are not bravo and certainly not an hombre but rio, yup – a yellow stinky stream from your mouth.

    Yet another example of how the Republican message of hate and their love of violence filters through to our children. We can’t let them destroy our children like they destroyed our economy.
