“at the age of 12..” why even have Juvie courts then ?? at that age, they’re kids.. kids do dumb things.. yeah this is pretty bad, really bad in fact, but there’s one thing that will not go away.. the age of these 2 when the act was committed.. ‘automatic’ waivers (in my personal opinion) should be held as a lack of due process.. “who waived their rights? why the state did.. and who gave the authority to the state to waive an individuals rights? umm… the state did..” Are these 2 girls guilty ? Yes I believe they are.. & yes I believe they should be punished.. but fairly.. just because a bunch of old farts got together & passed legislative act doesn’t do away with the fact that these 2 kids were ‘kids’ when this crime, (no matter how bad it was) happened.. to be facing 65yrs for a crime committed at the age of 12 is kind of a crime in itself.. please keep us updated on this..
