    I'm happy to say the Supreme Court has ruled there can be no more executions of juveniles. It's about time. Any thoughts?

    I support the death penalty for certain crimes and have stated before that the system needs to be tightened up to eliminate any chance of errors. Beyond reasonable doubt is not good enough. It must be without any doubt whatsoever.

    I do however fully agree that juveniles should not be executed or adults convicted for crimes committed when they were juveniles.

    Along with this I believe the age at which one can do everything...drinking for example...should be set at the age that one can be considered old enough to be executed. Set an age that is universal for everything and at that age you are on your own.

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    Yes! come on. Let the wee bastards away with the ultimate crime.
    I know you have heard it all before. But when I was young if a youngster commited a crime. He went to the court. his name went in the paper. the family were put to shame and kept them under control. (Well most of them). Forget all this the police gave me a kick in the arse. That is all bollocks. I went to court for stealing apples out of an orchard at 8. My name went in the paper. Never broke another law,

    Along come the do gooders. No crimes for juveniles, no naming and shaming. Go into any Mall at the weekend and see what the do gooders have done. The kids are running riot. They are having to employ security guards in schools. I could go on and on.

    Has anyone ever thought that murder may be in the genes? So lets keep them alive to breed more murders? Let's fill the prisons costing millions every year. No let's them back out again to murder again It is happening. Nobody can deny that. Happened on Monday there(UK), man put in the loony bin for stabbing someone to death. Gets out, within hours stabs someone else to death.

    Think of the victims before you think of the criminals.


    P.S. I hate it when the cat wants out in the bloody middle of the night.

    You must have pressed the quote button, it wont let you quote without writing something underneath the quote. It's foxed me when I've clicked the wrong button a few times hoping to edit.

    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    NOBODY suggest letting them "get away with it".....they can still get life without parole, just not the death penalty

    I know most of you think this is a good thing but it not.The real LA gangs see this as a reason for kids to do some of the more dangerous things.Before kids under 18 did not get tried as an adult for anything,so a lot of LA gangs used kids to delver drugs and stuff like that.If you think juveniles are uncapple of committing violent crimes then you're very wrong.
