    He hasn’t a hope of beating the charge because he was caught on camera!

    You have been found guilty. The sentence is to be thrown down the stairs.

    THANK YOU, I think the trend of charging children “as adults” is ludicrous because…they’re not adults. No matter how tragic the crime, we can’t just pretend that a child had an adult’s comprehension when they committed it.

    And that goes double for fuzzy raccoons.

    OH and it is so good that the victims of these children committing crimes think that they weren’t hurt quite as bad cause it wasn’t an adult that hurt them, it wasn’t an adult that raped them, it wasn’t an adult that murdered someone therefore the crime isn’t as bad.

    I hate it when people sympathize with the criminals and ignore that victims, the ones who really need our help who will never make it past what was done to them.

    By sympathizing with the perpetrator you’re only making it worse for the victims.

    We’re schizophrenic and hypocritical in this country with respect to how we treat teenagers. Neuroscience tells us that the prefrontal cortex, which controls impulse and judgement, is not fully developed until age 24. We allow driving at 16, marriage at 17, enlistment in the military, the ability to enter into contracts, and voting at 18, but not legal drinking of alcohol until 21. Yet when a particularly heinous crime is committed by a child – sometimes as young as 9 or 10 – he/she can get charged as an “adult”. I have the utmost sympathy and empathy for victims – my husband is career law enforcement – but believe we need to be more consistent in our application of the term “adult” and its concomitant rights, responsibilities, and privileges and not arbitrarily use it in the juvenile justice system only when we’re outraged.

    Adults are supposed to teach their children just what is right and what is wrong. Unfortunately, they show their children how to behave.

    That was adorable, Alexi! Thanks for that, and for all the little “extras” you provide. :-)
