The Court Has Spoken
Last week, the US Supreme Court Issued 2 rulings. One Said that juveniles could not be sentenced to life in prison without parole for non murder convictions, and another said that certain violent sex offenders could be kept in prison after their terms were over. We agree on both of these. When you are dealing with a teenager, there is a better chance of rehabilitating them, so they deserve a shot at freedom at some point. And, since it's generally recognized that sex offenders can't be cured, this is a good ruling as well. I'd (Billy) would rather see the law system use their resources in holding a guy that raped and murdered a 5 year old then a 15 year old who got a blow job from their 14 year old girlfriend.
