I adore cats, I have had five of them, two currently. They are my favorite
animals, but humans are more important. NOTHING justifies putting teens
in prison for 25 years.. not burglary, not animal cruelty, not murder, not
terrorism, not torture.. nothing.
No child should ever be tried as an adult, you know why? Because they are
NOT ADULTS!. Every child should have the right of a second chance, and a
third chance, and a fourth chance.. when he becomes an adult it becomes
different, but as long as he's not an adult, he deserves to be forgiven and
to be granted new chances.
I would rather lock up the judge and the lawyers that trial a child as an
adult, than send the child to prison for even a single year.
How heartless does a person have to be to find 25 years for a child that
allegedly burned a cat, regardless of having broken into a home, justifiable?
No child ever deserves to go to prison, regardless of its crimes.. because
people don't get better in prison, they get worse. Prison turns light criminals
into heavy criminals, they are breeding places of evil. There are better
ways to help a teen criminal rehabilitate.
You people should be ashamed of yourself. All of you should spend a year
in your beloved american prisons, see how you feel about it then. I can
guarantee that your outlook will have completely changed, maybe then you
come to your senses. Because these places are true hell holes..
This forum seems to show Americans off as heartless and twisted, you all
seem to think love, compassion, solidarity and understanding to be works
of the devil.
And you call yourselves a Christian nation, pah.
