One has to wonder... what is best for the individual, the victim (if alive, and/or victim's family), and Society in general when a youth decides to break the law in a BIG WAY.  I'll define that as a kid who without remorse will shoot/stab/rape/kill a person/people as many times as they can get away with it, along with multiple previous accounts of robbery, theft, major gang racketeering of various sorts, etc.

Well... the law has come down on the side of the perp.  If you're under 18, you're not supposed to be sentenced to death or incarceration without the possibility of parole -- because even a little hoodlum a day under 18 years old is still legally considered a "child"... even if they have numerous children of their own.

How cool is that??
