Me:"WHY shouldn't we "punish" them as adults"

Jim Carroll: Because they were children when they committed the crime maybe!!!

Ok. Now give me a REASON why that makes it wrong. You've repeated endlessly that they were children when they committed this deed. I think we all agree on that much.

What I'm asking is, WHY shouldn't they be executed now that they are adults? You seem to be treating their crime like they were caught shoplifting or something.

And stop giving me this garbage that they were abused. I don't care. Lots of people were abused as children and didn't go off and wantonly torture and murder a much younger defenseless child. That's not a youthful indiscretion--that's sign of extremely dangerous criminal behavior that has never proven n one single instance to have been reformable.

So again: WHY shouldn't they be executed as adults for a horrible crime they committed as chidren who were old enough to know what they were doing was wrong?
