Why shouldn't "underage" (or "minors") be named/pictured for their crime?

In my opinion, this seems silly.

Take this article:

www.bbc.co.uk...

These kids are as dangerous as their adult counterparts. Why shouldn't they be named and shamed?

Because kids have a chance to change when they "grow up" and they aren't stained for life because of something stupid done as a kid....That's my 2 cents anyways....Thank god my name and picture wasn't released when I was a kid!

Kids do dumb s#it every day brother...I can easily vouch for that one!

Better question is why should we name and picture people who are adults? Look how often the media jumps on an ongoing court case and starts prosecuting by social opinion. I'm sure that court proceedings would go over MUCH better for the country's sanity if the news weren't allowed to name or picture ANY defendants until AFTER the trial is over.

I think we'll agree to disagree on this one


I did some stupid stuff when I was young too but I didn't ram a knife into my teacher. Mind you...

After the trial? Yes, I'd agree there.

Holy hell....We agree again! This has been a minor trend recently...Couldn't agree more! The courts are stained immediately because people believe everything fed to them and don't care about the systems....It is left to social media now

I'll echo your sentiments. I did some very stupid things as a kid. It is too young to write a life off. Loads of naughty kids end up as very wise and valuable adults.

Wasn't it Jesus who said to Peter about how many times to keep on forgiving. I guess every time we forgive we are giving people second chances, and third and fourth...

Giving up on people is just a state of lacking imagination. Why give up when we can keep on trying? Everything is to be gained by that,

"If they will turn again then I will heal them". Fine ethos.

Then when the court comes back with a verdict that the country doesn't agree with, there is much social backlash. Up to and including politicians trying to circumvent the judicial system to get something to stick. The best example from the recent past is Zimmerman, but we can also name Casey Anthony or even OJ Simpson as others where this annoying media trend resulted in people pretending like they knew more about the case than the people sitting in the courtrooms did.

If found guilty after a trial, my opinion is that there should be no line drawn. Also (sorry, I'm not too familiar with these forums as to how to reply to more than one post at a time), the bible quote from Revolution: wasn't there also a biblical quote about "an eye for eye"?

I digress slightly though - I'm not talking about punishment; that's for greater minds than mine to ponder. I'm talking about showing the public who these offenders are.

Anyway, I blame the parents... (and there's another topic that might well split opinions!)

Why should they be? Most countries do not name minors. Why do you think that is?

You may have went a bit far with OJ....He was wearing his wife's head while claiming the glove didn't fit....But that's neither here nor there....I agree again! Once we all tear apart a story and find a verdict between us, we all want it to happen or everyone is pissed....That is NOT the legal system or how it is to operate AT ALL!!!! You are to know NOTHING about a case going in...Relying ONLY on evidence....Innocent until PROVEN guilty has changed....It is the other way around now with social media!

Up to 18 ( at least here) you have a grace period.

Personally, if you commit am adult crime, you should pay the adult price..

He very may STILL may have done it (I also kind of believe the same thing about Casey Anthony), but the trial determined that he was not guilty. That's all we can go by as far as breaking the law is concerned. So while it is still likely that he really DID murder Nicole, our opinion on the matter is irrelevant.

Agreed. That is called a kangaroo court or rule by mob rule. We don't do that here.

Have you ever read about OJ's attorneys getting the glove to "examine" prior to the fitting? There was a chemical added to shrink it if I recall correctly...That trial was an absolute joke....Then he goes to jail for stealing his memorabilia....hahaha...What a class act! Casey too! Eff her....I don't care and I can have any opinion I want now but we shouldn't know about anything until after a trial...

Yea, like I said, I have my suspicions about the verdicts of both of those trials, but my opinions on them are irrelevant as far as the law is concerned.
