Yeah it's a messed up thing when we try 12 year old kids as adults and simultaneously take 18 year old adults and call them kids with "bad home training" when they commit similar crimes. Race politics at work folks.

Or they're admitting 12 year old whites are mentally superior to adult blacks.

RACIST MEDIA CALLS 12 YEAR OLD WHITE CHILDREN MENTALLY SUPERIOR TO 18 YEAR OLD BLACK ADULTS, WHITE PRIVILEGE REMAINS STRONG

"bad home training"

so they're saying the latter is a bunch of animals? saying bad home training is like saying that dog still shits on the floor when you leave him alone for 10 minutes.

at least we know who they consider people.

Dunno anything about these Chicago kidnappers, but definitely don't think these two children should be tried as adults. There are likely kids in their class that still believe in Santa. Sure, Slenderman is a different type of magic, but it's not that much of a stretch to think that some of them might believe in it. Heck, I thought X-Files were real for a while, as a kid. Let's just count our blessings that the victim survived, and not throw these young kids away for life.

No twelve year old should be tried as an adult for anything. I might support a crime of criminally bad parenting when your child goes on a shooting or stabbing spree, but kids that young live in a different reality. Sending them to prison for life is just wrong.

Bruh, they tried to stab someone to death in sacrifice to a creepy pasta meme. That's either a professional window licker, or that's a kid looking for any excuse to kill.

I think that life in prison for juveniles is illegal now, right?

No more excuses for black people. Man the fuck up! If you are going to be a loser because someone else calls you an Uncle Tom, then YOU are the problem not society.

B..b...but there's an over-representation of black males in prison, this should serve as proof that the justice system is racist.

When they plotted and attempted to murder another girl, they crossed the line into adulthood. It was no childish prank. The Chicago four , same thing.

Okay, so since they crossed the line into adulthood, does that mean they should - in theory, ignoring their crime - be able to vote, drink, smoke and enlist in the military as 12-year-olds?

Hard to do any of that sitting in a jail cell.

Look, they made a decision to kill someone. That's a head-first leap into adulthood, and they should lose most of their rights for it.

I am perfectly fine for there to be some mental counseling during that time, at least until we can discern if there is some serious developmental issues at play, but given that kids younger, and older have been doing fucked up shit like this for quite some time now, it's a hard sell for me that two 12yr olds didn't know what they were doing.

They were 12, they were operating under some sort of delusion. 12 isn't the age of consent for anything. They should be hospitalized, not turned into criminals by our prison industry.

The "leader" was a sad case. It was hard for her to get psychiatric treatment. She was probably raped in jail. This is not an "adult" crime -- there was little rational motivation, and none that an adult would believe. Freeing her is a public health hazard; punishing her is pointless. She was young enough that there might have been some rehabilitation.

Thank you for having a soul.

Young girls often operate in a different reality from the rest of the world, it's inexplicable, but I was one, so
yeah. I've read up on the crime, it's..I can see them getting carried away in this insane story, it's so fucking sad.

I went to jail young. It changed me in fundamental ways. My brother went to prison at 17, came out...it's not
even a change you can explain to a person who didn't know him before - it's like he died.

I've wondered why they have special laws and systems for juveniles, and then they disregard them, wheres the line at here for charging as adult? Is it just whatever gets the prosecutor the most time for them?

well... They were 12 when they decided to essentially sacrifice some classmate of theirs to an internet boogeyman. 2 12 year old girls stabbed another 12 year old girl 19 times. the victim somehow didn't die, and was rescued by a passerby. The assaulters both pleaded mental insanity. they are currently being held in facilities until they are old enough to be tried as adults.

So. 2 young girls are both pleading insanity after failling to kill a classmate. thats the gist of it. I understand this is really sketchy territory but fuck it, try em as adults. I mean they stabbed a girl 19 times. between the 2 of them. and DIDNT kill the victim. fucking stupid ass kids.

How is this an argument? And why is it the only one I ever hear?

"They did something horrible, therefore they are mentally adults"

What the fuck is wrong with you?

Seriously, if anything, the opposite is true. Magical thinking isn't a step toward adulthood.
