    Of course the family. Sorry, I didn't mean to quote your post. It just does that sometimes when I quote two posts, and I don't know how to turn it off.

    Absolutely, they aren't adults.

    I think kids under 17 are worth trying to rehabilitate. Whether or not it works is another thing entirely but it's totally worth the effort when it comes to such a young life IMO. I don't know all the details to this specific case, so I don't really feel comfortable going into any detailed kind of plan for these particular kids.

    Why? Just some arbitrary age? What about some stone cold sociopathic 15 year old boy versus some nice 23 year old women who killed in a jealous rage? Can't she be cured? Obviously the sociopath can't, but you think that he deserves a chance but not the woman? Why a kid?

    Read the link I posted. It explains quite a bit.

    Fair enough for now... maybe it will arise again.. As previously posted I do not promote the death penalty but feel it is appropo in the instance. I can accept 12 or 13 y.o. not realizing things but not 15, 16, or 17. I was that age once; I knew what I was doing.

    Enjoy your eve, Chris

    Not only should they be tried as adults, they should be executed as adults.

    Whether you want to call them kids or adults, there's simply no place in this world for people like them.
