teens are teens. I dont think its okay when adults having consensual sex with 15 year olds are treated like if they raped a 7 year old. in the law all teenagers are treated as children until they turn 18. so one day you are legally a child and then bang! an adult? that doesnt work. how are kids going to grow up and behave if they arent treated as something more than children? teenagers are teenagers, not children. it should start with the ages of 12, 13 or 14. if they wanna charge them for statutory rape, thats okay although I am against this cause if its consensual, then it shouldnt be rape. but it bothers me when they have to register as sex offenders. now thats just wrong.
"playing in the adult world" shouldnt be a rule. teenhood is still a time when many are ignorant, apparently the myelin is still growing (a layer on axons of neurons). although punishments for rape and murder should still be heavy. but those two 10 or 11 year olds that killed another boy and left it on railway tracks actually grew up, found god and now live a new life in australia. I'm okay with that and vengeful people should accept it. if they regret, leave them. I wanted to kill parents, but their parenting and failed social services was an issue, not because I wanted to play in the adult world. what else can you do to liberate yourself? they dont give you a right to work and live on your own until 18. the episode of CSI made me smarter and I waited, especially because I always wanted to legally move out of the country.
school shootings arent just murders. there are many issues in the minds of killers. how many were bullied? and people want to torture them, lock them in a dungeon for as long as they live. but I wish klebold and harris would actually read what darwin said instead of thinking that only the strongest survive. darwin wrote its not the most strongest nor the most intelligent that survive, but the ones most responsive to change.
