    This thread died pages ago when it became obvious to most that we call kids and teenagers and adults different names for a reason, even when they do the same damn things.

    For an act of murder like this? The kids showed a level of premeditation, while they didn't plan for a specific victim they did plan to kill. In my state they'd be on death row for an adult offense.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    It is probably a mistake to group all 3 together. The shoorter should be tried as an adult.

    I can go with that. The two that didn't do the shooting, if they had prior knowledge should have some sort of accomplice charges, but the shooter definitely deserves an adult murder charge.

    The man is dead. he did nothing to deserve it-that's where the inquiry really should start and end.
    Why are you so keen on the idea of children being raped? It's a little worrying.

    They should be tried as juveniles because that's what they are, and if convicted, punished. Simple.

(AP) — With the simplest of motives — breaking up the boredom of an Oklahoma summer — three teenagers followed an Australian collegiate baseball player who was attending school in the U.S. and killed him with a shot to the back for “the fun of it,” prosecutors said Tuesday as they charged two of the teens with murder.
    As the boys appeared in an Oklahoma courtroom, a 17-year-old blurted out, “I pulled the trigger,” then wept after a judge told him that Tuesday’s hearing wasn’t the time or place to sort out the facts of the case.
    Prosecutor Jason Hicks called the boys “thugs” as he told Stephens County Judge Jerry Herberger how Christopher Lane, 22, of Melbourne, died on a city street.
    Chancey Allen Luna, 16, and James Francis Edwards, Jr., 15, of Duncan were charged with first-degree murder and, under Oklahoma law, will be tried as adults. Michael Dewayne Jones, 17, of Duncan was accused of using a vehicle in the discharge of a weapon and accessory to first-degree murder after the fact. He is considered a youthful offender but will be tried in adult court. 3 Teens Charged After Australian Player Slain « CBS Houston
    I didn't like the choices, so I couldn't vote. There's no distinction between being tried as an adult and letting them walk free with a playful pat on the bottom. Too artificial by far.

    Detention in a juvenile correction facility should suffice as punishment for that age group. Or do away forever with age altogether as being relevant to any area of judgement. Do we treat children as adults only when we're angry?

    People are generally too ready to interpret revenge as justice. Emotion as moral barometer. Crime and punishment, as with abortion, is one of those issues where Cons become Libs.

    Child rape. Nice.

    Aren't you the enlightened one.

    Being a child is dictated by age, not actions. And they haven't been convicted yet.
    You're still supporting child rape.
