Get rid of direct-file law/Prosecutor power over cases

http://www.miamiherald.com/opinion/other-views/story/1466098.html

A prosecutor should NOT have MORE power over cases than a judge, they have entirely TOO much power over cases, in deciding whether case stays in juvenile court or is transferred to adult court. A CHILD IS A CHILD, "NOT" AN ADULT!!!

(excerpt-PLEASE READ FULL ARTICLE)

A judge is not involved. A courtroom is not involved. No checks and balances. No hearing; no right to be heard. No right to appeal the decision.
