I'm pretty sure he means that their age rules out how some otherwise normal kids (under 15/16) can be excused for horrific behavior on the grounds of them being just dumb kids. I know a few guys who fired pellet guns at cats and the like while in school and now regret their behavior. On the other hand if someone is 18/19 already and are engaging in this level of sadism, that's a sign that somethings fucked up.
