Victims, Perpetrators and the Criminal Justice System

While collecting and analysing data for my website's ( article, I came across a story of a young man who was murdered because he's a son of a police officer. Seven of the 10 perpetrators were released because the court wasn't sure who really did it. The 3 most violent ones were kept for a while but then 2 of them got away because the other one admitted, who hadn't really received the 'appropriate' punishment. What's "appropriate" considering that a life was lost due to stabbing, punching, etc.? that such violence has caused permanent sorrow to parents, relatives and friends? that it seems the CJS has worked in favour of the criminals than the victim?

This video is in French but even if you don't understand it, you'll feel the sadness and disappointment and never see the judges and laws the same as before.
