    Woah... what in the HELL! Are you kidding me?

    Judge, I killed the man. I wanted his money so I walked up to him, took out my gun and shot him in the face. I took his money and tried to hide from the cops. I knew what I was doing. I planned it.

    Well Mr 40 Year-Old. It certainly sounds like an irrational, illogical child like decision that you made.

    No Sir Your Honor. I planned it knowing full well what I was doing.

    Again Mr 40 Year-Old... no, your decision was not logical and was child like.

    Depending upon the crime, I'm okay with that. In this case, with the 15-year-old, I'd like to know a bit more about him, his past, his upbringing, his education, etc.

    Goodness! Just because an adult commits a crime does not classify it as a rational or an adult decision. LOL!

    Not really, They are being charged with 1st Degree Murder as adults which can be punish with Capital Punishment. No ignorance to be seen. Just because you my not believe in it because of perosnal beliefs does not make people of different thinking arrogant. Oklahoma does use the Death Penalty

    And here is a demonstration of ignorance. Juveniles can NOT be sentenced to death. It's illegal. You should know the FACTS before you speak of such things.

    Depends. Execute Lenny because the tramp tricked him? Nope. Execute some retarded guy that walked into a house and killed some mom for a reason? Yes. I don't care if a person is sane or a mental screw-up. Guilty is guilty.

    Yes, so? Just because an adult does a criminal act does not make it an adult behavior.
    What is adult behaviour? I have never heard of anything like that. Is it a new thing?

    What I don't like is that you are setting up kids with a special rule. A kid does something wrong and it's because they are a kid. But if they do right then they are acting like an adult? Makes no sense what-so-ever.

    Minors are no longer subject to capital punishment. See 2005 SCOTUS decision regarding the matter...
