    So what if this kid had shot and killed another dozen people that day? DP?

    You can kill multiple people and not be considered a serial killer. A serial killer has very special characteristics. They usually will not kill 15 people in one day. That is more characteristic of a mass murderer.

    I think that is rare. Most teens are not. I'm thinking of my son and his friends. Even at 17/18 years, they are still quite immature in many ways.

    Whatever... what if the kid killed random little children over the course of a couple years then... Death Penalty?

    I am quite immature in many ways... can I get away with targeting a guy and blasting him dead on the street??

    Why are you going off on this tangent? This is not what happened. You are not going to change my mind about killing kids. Sorry.

    I believe that would be labeled a spree killer.

    Re: Should these teens be tried as adults

    Come to think of it, I don't think I actually became an adult until I was at least 25. I was quite immature and I still am, but I certainly am capable of making MUCH better decisions, I know a lot more, and I have more empathy and sympathy for others. Life isn't all about "me" anymore, and I fear consequences much more.

    If any of you were honest, you would be able to admit that there are CLEAR differences in yourselves from when you were teens compared to how you are as adults.

    I am setting up parameters. I am trying to understand if there are any situations where you would support such an action.

    I think that we ALL admit that. The thing that you aren't getting or acknowledging is that "kids" can and do make extremely rational, logical and "adult" decisions every day. Taking a gun out, targeting a person and then pulling the trigger and attempting to get away is clearly the sign of a "kid" (person) that logically thought out a situation and acted on it. This is not as I said, a kid acting immaturely and then killing a person on accident. This isn't a kid punching another one, putting him in a coma where he dies or driving to fast for fun and killing a person. Why wont you differentiate the differences?
