    [QUOTE=TiredOfLife;1062213910]Yes, 15-year-old is exactly the same as an adult,

    A 15-year-old is expected to know not to kill some one or be a party to kill some one for no reason.


    only they have to go to school,

    But not for long. Also many adults find that they will have to go to school for their careers.


    they have a bedtime,


    Yes, but they are not a pubescent and is not as strictly enforced.

    and you can still spank them when they're naughty.[QUOTE]

    This is the 21st Century and parents that spank their kids can be brought up on charges. Even in Oklahoma.

    If they miss the part about a beating versus a spanking of course they can be. But tell me, are there many adults who can still find themselves over a parent's knee, stripped of their pants and underwear, being spanked with a hairbrush? That's a real possibility and an entirely legal thing that can happen to you, when you're a child that is.

    Yes, in the right hands (the vast majority), it is for the protection of life and property. In the wrong hands however, it is for murder, armed robbery, and mayhem.

    That's how it can be used, not what it is for. I can use a claw hammer for that but that's not what it's for.

    No, if a parent publicly spanks a child they can be brought up on charges. Again no, if a child is found to have welts by a doctor or a school nurse, the parent can be brought up on charges.

    Can be yes, but that's besides the point. We can legally spank them because they are legally children. As for spanking in public, I'd like to see a bit more of that. There are real brats out there. For that matter, I wouldn't mind seeing a few parents spanked. They aren't much better.

    Killing, their sole purpose and design.

    I guess that makes them the single most ineffective thing in the history of things then.

    Not at all. They are very effective. It's why we send our soldiers off with them. They are good at helping kill our enemies.
