Children are clearly NOT adults/STOP THIS MADNESS/TRIED AS "ADULTS"

http://criminaljustice.change.org/petitions/view/paul_gingerich-_a_12_year_old_should_not_be_tried_in_adult_court


IF 100% guilty of this crime, punishment is warranted, BUT as the child they are, along with detention, should be discipline, guidance, education, and rehabilitative efforts, so in time, he can become a "productive member of society". IF those items are NOT in place for children, and if they are lucky to be released in time, what kind of man will they be? Without the above items mentioned, upon release, they will be just as dependent then, as they were as "children." Alternative solutions can be met, "offering them a chance" to turn their lives around", but the "chance" is never "offered" by officials. Certainly the victims are NOT forgotten, but the children are also "victims" of a sorely needed law reform for juveniles and NOT throw their young lives away, for mistakes made as a "child." Please get educated, and involved in these issues, to help save our nation's children from doom and deaths!

Kenny Bartley Jr. said the grown-ups let him down.

"When you're 15 years old, you can't even buy a car," said his new lawyer, Gregory P. Isaacs. "This kid cannot make a lifetime decision in three hours as he's about to go to trial."
