i think you're giving 14 year old kids a little too much credit.

we definitely believe in different systems. i believe in rehabilitating young offenders, you believe in punishing them.

This kid is most likely coming from an area where he's been subjected to things that the majority of the population could never even begin to relate to. My guess was that this kid wanted in to the local gang and leading a gang rape of an innocent young girl was his rite of passage. No gang is using a petty crime as a rite of passage, they want kids that will do anything without question. That fact alone speaks to this kid's awareness of what he was doing, but that he was also indifferent.

It really comes down to where you want to draw the line. At what age can a "kid" really be held accountable for his actions? It's all too grey.

Boy could face adult sentencing
Posted By SARAH DEETH , EXAMINER STAFF WRITER
Posted 9 hours ago


The Crown began its push Friday in Superior Court of Justice in Cobourg Ontario, to have a Warkworth boy, convicted of murdering his mother, sentenced as an adult.

The boy was 14 when he was charged with the murder of his mother, a 33-year-old Warkworth woman, in May 2008.

She was shot seven times in the head and once in the neck. During the struggle leading up to her death, bones in her left arm and right hand were broken.


Her body was found buried in her backyard 16 days after she was reported missing.


The boy was tried for firstdegree murder in Peterborough. A jury convicted the boy after the Crown successfully argued that the woman's murder was planned, deliberate and carried out by her son.

The application, argued by Dave Thompson, will take several days to complete and is scheduled to return to court July 22.

At the onset of Friday's proceedings, Thompson said he wanted to cross-examine the doctors who authored a psychological evaluation and conducted a psychological test.

How does a 14 year old get a gun? That's an even bigger issue.

Its a very delicate situation. The ideal thing is that each case should be treated differently and should be examinied and analized by sicologist. Im sure there are kids that deserve a chance to rehabilitated and others would be better off dead. The difficult part is to judge accuaretly wich is wich.
