Age Creep

Deep in the recesses of my brain are memories of, when I was child, discussions about making exceptions for juveniles - 16 or 17 year olds - who had committed heinous crimes. Now apparently they're talking about charging this kid - who is 14 - as an adult.

You know, no matter what horrible thing a 14 year old does or plans to do... he's still 14, and 14 year olds don't really have fully functioning adult brains. I thought that was the point.
