    have these turds made a plea bargain with the prosecution yet?
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    for those of you crying that these turds are "children" and shouldn't be tried as adults.... how about these guys? should they be charged as adults or are they also just "children"?

    I didn't bother to read the crime, since it doesn't matter. 15 is still 15.

    What was your point?
    At some stage, a child becomes capable of making adult decisions. 16, 18, 21, whatever. Once a date is set in law then anyone under that age must be tried as a child because it has been agreed, presumably with contributions from all the experts in child development, legal precedent and any other field that is relevant, that that is the minimum age at which the person can be held legally liable for the decisions they make. That's why it's commonly known as the "Age of Responsibility"
    Bending those carefully crafted rules for vengeance's sake is morally wrong. The crime is irrelevant, it's the age/responsibility capability that matters.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    Delighted to. A child is still a child, regardless of the crime.
