Redeeming Irredeemable Youth


An excellent article, thanks to the author Mr. Larry M. Elkin, CPA, CFP  an excerpt below.....please read full article.
Youths are capable of heinous crimes, and such crimes sometimes demand the strictest punishment we can reasonably demand. But does this mean the law should deem an entire class of youthful offenders irredeemable based on the nature of their crimes? How could Speer, a professional architect who was also the architect of death for untold soldiers and civilians, be returned to society, while we today deem teens who commit murder in certain places to be incapable or unworthy of repair?
