Maybe you and your ideas should get a time machine and move back to the middle ages or the Wild West, or you should join ISIS or something. You'd be more surrounded with people who think like you. There's always a risk that someone will pick a beef with you and summarily execute you on spot with no right to defense or due process, but hey, you asked for it.
Also, you speak of a 12 year old like there has never been 12 year olds that would just as soon shoot you dead, and ride their bike away....Must be nice living in your easy viewed world.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

Most of us think people need a trial; that cops shouldn't get to decide who is a thug and should die and who shouldn't. Due process is a very important part of our constitution and laws.
And how do you know if society is better off without him? What a judgement to make about someone that young. Do people never change in your opinion (if he actually was a criminal now)?
