    Knowing and doing are two separate things. It's why we call them teenagers not adults.

    How is killing a person who is guilty out of vengeance more barbaric than killing a person who is guilty because they forfeit their right to live in society...??

    Yes, and when you do something you know is wrong, like murder, then you should be punished for it.

    You killed somebody, so now I'm going to kill you. Hmm. That doesn't sound like justice to me boys.

    It's one thing if a kid robs somebody. Just because you fell into the wrong crowd and stole something doesn't mean you are incapable of becoming a responsible member of society without having to go through the prison experience. I'm sorry, if you shoot somebody in the back as a 15 year old, you need to be put in a mental institution and/or prison, because there is something seriously wrong with you.
    Yes, they understand the "concept." Sure.

    Most of them don't die driving and drinking or drop the bbay on its head either. It's a numbers game.
