    It would be really nice if faith were the solution, but faith doesn't work very well against violence.

    And the parents are to blame for not instilling those things in to their little thug children.

    And? What do you propose to do? Lock them up for being bad parents?

Yes....kids should be punished for poor behaviors and they should be punished harshly if the crime is serious. However the idea of treating kids as adults in all cases is just a ridiculous proposal.
    Huh?

    He specifically stated that the kids had committed a violent crime which was altogether different from "skipping school, taking someone's bicycle for a joy ride or bashing in somone's mailbox" and should be punished differently.

    Correct. This dad should have had his son apologize.

    That speaks volumes about your stand on criminal matters and law. Fortunately, most people don't believe that bad parenting is criminal.
