    The law treats everyone the same? Four-year-olds can get the chair now?

    It's the same logic that keeps mentally retarded and mentally ill people from being charged with a capital offense.

    And here you go immediately devolving to appeals to the absurd. As usual.

    I told you to put the gun down by the count of three or you'd go to the electric chair, and get no dessert!

    Yes, just exposing the absurdity of your argument.

    So 4-year-olds are treated differently?

    Why not 11-year-olds? What's the cut off age if there is none? But there is one, huh, somewhere between 4 and 11?

    Sure you do, I'm Johnny Utah from years ago, been here since 2006.

    Bull****. The reasons have been given right here in this thread if you were of half a mind to read it.
    But they are illogical.

    Buddy, if I throw an insult, it won't be off-handed and indirect and you will KNOW it was an insult. Until then, get over it.
    I didn't say you threw out an insult. I said you threw out an off-handed and indrect insult. I am sure you see that upon review.

    It's already been shown so you don't have to wait. But please, do us a favor and hold your breath for my response.
    You're so silly, you don't mean that.

    Big difference. Metally challenged and ill people have issues with their brain. Regular kids don't. They might lack certain developmental stages. They are certainly able to differentiate between right and wrong, this is byond a doubt. The difference is substantial enough to negate the comparison.
