Well, I am a juvenile advocate. I feel that our youngsters who commit crimes are being given a raw deal from prosecutors and the court systems here in the U.S. Kids are just that, and they deserve to be treated as such, not spend 15, 20, 30 years or longer in prison. Prosecutors don't care anymorte, all they want is to further their own careers, and if a child commits a crime, they will bulldoze the child over. Chidren deserve rehabilitation, if they are truly guilty of the crime. If they remain in the juvenile system, they will receive all the counseling and rehabilitation they need to live productive lives. If you throw them in adult prisons, you are throwing them away and completely wasting their lives, and killing any future they might have had. Give a child a chance!
