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
What? Im sorry I missed the point.
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
Im sure society would benefit from not letting this guy get off with a slap on the wrist. The law would not do justice in this case and that is the point.
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.....
I should point out that I don't see a 6 year old committing these crimes any time soon. And id appreciate it if you didn't question my mental health. You don't have enough information to make any assumptions.
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???
No a 6 year old should not have those legal rights. However, if a 6 year old commits such crimes, it is my opinion that something should be done to make sure the little psycho doesn't get a chance to do it again. And like I said, if the day comes and a 6 year old does this, then my opinion might change.
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
Again, if someone does this....... Blablabla...............
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
The law doesn't always = right (doesn't always make sense either)
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
