yes banging a head against a wall is an excellent emoticon........ and it exactly explains a different approach at futility

because theres no possible way other than banging a head against a wall to demonstrate the futile attempts to impart comprehension



so in your opinion a 15 year old who would do these things is messed up all around and beyond rehabilitation........ and that may be true........ but thats not even close to the law...... the law says or at least said at the time....... that hes a child and can only be rehabilitated....... and only until hes 18

and while I find the idea that a 6 year old is beyond rehab and should get life in prision just plain disturbing (wondering who needs the counseling here)..... I'll play along for a minute.....

so if a 6 year old is legally responsible for his actions and should be treated as an adult.... your opinion not mine...... then should we also grant legal right to allow 6 year olds the same adult decision making to drink/have sex/buy cigarrettes/vote/join the army/etc etc???

you seem to be advocating a double standard under the law....... adult enough to do life in prison but not adult enough to do other adult things

but we are getting way off track here...... in the grand scheme of things..... the law is the law....... now or then...... and legally by presidence he can only receive the punishment he would have received back then.......... the most severe being 3 years in juvi

I would like to see him fry personally....... what he did was sickening...... but I wont let my emotion cloud my opinion of whats right by law
