Teens know what is right most of the time, they just aren't any good at doing it. For that you need maturity, which they lack and therefore we call them teens or kids.
    You are mistaken if you believe thrill drive-by shootings are limited to being done by people under age 18. In short, you have no point.

    maybe it would be better if the family of the murder victim gets to decide the penalty

    I never said that the teenagers should get the death penalty so I do not know why this is targeted at me. I'm against the death penalty and would like to see these three locked up in prison forever (of course after proven guilty).

    Allow? It's not my choice. To call someone an adult at 18 is an idiotic line in the sand. It's pure unscientific crap.

    And why would I believe that?

    In this specific case what would you deem an example of justice?

    Well, we have to think of those who are emotionally charged up too.

    Fair enough... but you oppose putting these teens on trial as adults for murder, right?
