Senator Yee's Bill/Juveniles/LIFE W/NO CHANCE OFPAROLE

http://www.therepublic.com/view/story/95ce15a43b0b43a0a6fc6a99b1151e05/CA-XGR--Youth-Sentences

Juveniles sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole could get a second chance under legislation approved by the state Senate............

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Because "chidren" are STILL in the developing stages, to include BRAIN development, juvenile law reform is imperative. Children DO deserve that "chance". Life with NO chance of parole is a slow death sentence. Children are immature, easily influenced, and vulnerable. Justice must be tempered with "compassion and mercy". Victims are NOT forgotten, and many have suffered, most do not know what exactly happens to that "child", once they are sentenced, in far too many cases, the punishment/sentencing did NOT "fit the crime" These children did NOT get to where they ARE today, ALL BY THEMSELVES!!!!
