    EDIT: Tessa worded it far better than I did.
    So executing someone who was 6 when the crime was committed is all good with you? How about 4?

    On a different tack, I'd like to see the parents investigated and possibly charged with accessory before the fact. Hard to believe they had no idea this kid was so dangerous.

    Again, this is why I think the parents should have criminal liability.

    I don't "care". I just think the Supreme Court decided this issue correctly.

    A 6 year old or a 4 year old are not fully "cooked" yet when it comes to knowing right from wrong. A teen is.

    The psychopathic serial killer's mind is something that merits more research.
    There's a pyschiatrist who has made cottage industry out of claiming a serial killer is "made" via brain trauma and childhood abuse. I personally think she's full of ****. There are sociopaths and psychopaths among us. Not all of them kill, but those that do are incurable, subhuman, and I have no compassion for them.

    There is cause for investigation for sure. But it would have to be damned good evidence that they had knowledge of the crime before hand.

    Hell, there are a good number of 20 year olds who haven't figured that out yet either.

    I think parental situations should be looked in some circumstances. But a dog will push away a newborn puppy when she senses something is wrong with it. Humans don't have that 6th sense. And besides, the kids already know right from wrong from their peers, school, tv, etc. THIS particular kid was born a sociopath and wanted to know what it felt like to kill another kid. So I say let her experience what her victim felt by killing HER. I have no empathy for the murderous brat. None.

    O, I think there are very smart 6 year olds who grasp the concept of "dead". And even a 4 year old can see someone is suffering. There was a torture-murder not long ago with a 4 year old who drowned a 18 month old baby in a bathtub. Complex planning, heavy lifting, long struggle, etc. Best case scenario, the baby took 4 minutes to drown.

    I'm good with cutting off the age limit at 18, but obviously, NO age will satisfy everyone.

    If 13, why not 12? Why not 10? Etc.

    Well, you can't have what you want.

    Deal with it.
