    Well I'm of the opinion that killing them doesn't do anything for anyone and that you couldn't know if one was worth the effort without actually meeting with and talking with that person.

    I'm neutral for the most part on the death penalty, however when someone says they killed because they were bored, I don't know how they can be salvaged.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    The experts claim that children and teenagers have a very high success rate with rehabilitation, even those that have committed violent crimes.

    Lots of factors. Family environment and parents income being the big ones. These three certainly would have either been aborted or given up for adoption to worthy families if my ideas were law.

    That is true. For the most heinous of crimes, society should have a right to reserve a heinous punishment. Just my opinion.

    That's how you read it? No, life misused to violate the first right, life.

    For the most part that may be true, but are they incorporating this type of sociopathic behavior?

    Life is a right? Even more interesting.
