Yes, this particular young man is a perfect example
The justice system needs another alternative for extremely young, potentially dangerous offenders
Other, please explain
What you suggest would take a super computer the size of the moon.
PS even the scientific method has been affected. Lies, covered up tests etc. After humans get involved, it can never be more than what we are.

No Lives Matter
For instance, the process is something like this:
1. Was a crime committed? If yes, move to step two.
2. Was the suspect above or below the age of 18? If above, see rule set 1. If below, see rule set 2.
(let's assume above and we go to rule set 1)
3. Were there aggravating factors? Define the aggravating factors. Then proceed to prosecution of the preset charge.
4. Did a jury find the defendant guilty or not guilty? Not guilty, proceed to acquittal. Guilty, proceed to sentencing.
5. Sentencing: preset sentencing for the crime is announced, proceed to punishment.
Follow this procedure with zero deviation and there is a huge step taken toward making the justice system equitable. Of course, this is all just untested opinion on my part.

Trying a child as an adult would be like trying a canine as a human. Legally and objectively speaking, they are different from one another. We do not put canine's on trial for gnawing a person's face off just because the owner thought his dog was like a human at times; this should be the same thing for children and adults.
