perhaps an old discussion new  

I was wondering on peoples opinion of trying as an adult and whether they certain individuals should be sentenced to life or death.
Say, if, a 16 year old rapes and kills a woman, but the laws within his area say he can't be sentenced to life behind bars, so he is let out at 18, is this fair? I would say not.

Given this day and age, young people are exposed and growing up faster than generations before (in some ways). Schools now want to teach 12 year olds safe sex, ( I think they should, BTW) but will nottry them as an adult if the said 12 year olds beat up another student, steal the 1.50$ the kid has on him, and then throw him out a 6th story window because he had no more money. ( A real story my BF told me)

I realize that these are extreme stories, but I wanted to read others opinions.

Edit: I also realize that it can vary from case by case basis as well.

If only Bono and Geldof had thought of this new [re: Vanessa_Y]  

I sincerely believe children should be killed before they can commit such heinous acts. The best part is that we can feed millions of hungry mouths with their tender, young flesh.

And I'm not too keen on anyone else

And he wasn't joking.

Trying to navigate TW reminds me of what it was like having dial-up service.

And vice versa.

Why not have a gradient? Obviously, at age 4, a child's parents or guardians are responsibility for what the kid does, whereas at 18, it's pretty much the kid's responsibility. So maybe the parents should do the four year old's time, and the kid should do the 18 year old's time. At age 11, they can split the time evenly, and so forth. That seems very fair to me.

But preemptive executions would, indeed, be more effective.

That's assuming that the case gets to court while he's still 16. And with gathering of evidence and witnesses or whatever, the chances that he may be 18 by the time judgement actually passes (without taking into account appeals etc) means that (according to my understanding) he faces the full force of the law.

I suppose the law aims more to rehabilitate children, rather than punish them, which could breed contempt and disregard for the law and it's enforcers later in life. Whether or not this works, I'm not sure.

God have mercy, you're a hopeless guitar player! You even make ME feel better you son of a bitch!

The penis is evil. The penis shoots seeds, and makes new life, and poisons the earth with a plague of men, as once it was. But the gun shoots death, and purifies the earth of the filth of brutals. Go forth and kill!
