Ok, do you remember "little Elian"? Now someone is suing the government due to trauma from the raid to get him. I swear, he was here illegally, if
he had been an adult the people would have stuck his butt in a crate and shipped him back to Cuba. Why is Elian being a kid mean any difference? He
still committed a crime. Just cause they a kid, if they kill, rape, steal, they still committing a crime.
Another case, kid in my neighbor hood is mentally challeneged. He was kidnapped, beaten, tortured, and finally let go. The people who did it were
neighborhood teens who thought it was funny. Guess what? 3 years later when they turned 18 they were released. They TORTURED someone and only got 3
years cause they were "minors".
Or someone who use to be a friend was on drugs, wanted into someones house. They told him no, but this kid who's name I will not use, is a spoiled
little brat who always gets what he wants, if you tell him no, you don't get away with it. The ex-friend took a 2x4 and broke into the house and
attacked the other friend and his guest. But he was 17, so a minor and gets probation for drug possesion, B&E, assault with a deadly x4(four people)
and resisting arresst. He now does drugs, his mother left her parents house and moved in with a b/f to get away from him, his aunt hates him and
called the cops last time he went to her house, his grandparents keep calling the cops on him, but he always does the "I'm a minor" bs and never
gets in trouble. Several counts of drug possession, running from cops, assault(his mother, why she left) robbery of a computer store, finally crashed
his g/fs car when drunk, so she left him, but since he is under 18 he has never spent a day in jail. Why? Just because you are under 18 does not
mean you are a "minor". One would think that violating his freaking probation would do it, but nooooo, he a minor. He was suppose to go to classes
for drugs, like NA, and a anger management class to, but never has. Why I stopped being friends with him.
I understand if say, a 8 year old accidently breaks something, or say pushes a ladder someone was on and they fell and hurt themselves, but you have
15-17 year olds getting away with TORTURE! and no problem, they a minor, let them go/slap them on the wrist.
