Should the law protect underage criminals?
Editor's note: There have been intense discussions about whether the criminal accountability age should be lowered, after a 13-year-old boy, accused of killing a 10-year-old girl, after failing to rape her, would be exempt from punishment because he was below the age of 14. Is the law too lenient towards juvenile delinquents? Forum readers share their opinions.
Anyone, young or old, should be aware that if they do commit a crime they will not get away with it. Violent criminals need to go through better systems of psychological evaluation before being released back into the public, in all nations.
