Excerpt--please read this important, EXCELLENT article
"Letting judges be judges will also return juvenile court to its roots. The judge, the impartial referee, is the most proper arbiter of whether a case merits what should be a rare transfer to adult court. Prosecutors with no duty to the accused, and legislators needing votes from constituents rattled by rare instances of high-profile juvenile crime, should not usurp the function of the unbiased judge."
