while I admit that trying him as an adult might result in a tragedy that most of us would not want to willingly participate in, ie. sitting on that jury, but let's face it, as more and more of this kind of thing happens, perpetrated by children of younger and younger age, we have to find a way to divine if they truly understood what they were doing and the consequences to others of their actions, namely injury and death, b/c if we continue to try them as children the penalties are lenient enough that they are not a deterrent, and it becomes a large enough issue that trying them as adults and sentencing them as such seems the only way to get their attention and show them how wrong their actions are, and even then, prison life gets romanticized so much by rappers, and especially gang members who want these kids to act this way, that most of them don't seem to understand that going to prison isn't going to net them a recording contract, or lots of loose women, so the question becomes, do you want to try them as children and have them out in 2 or 3 years w/o very little understanding of their actions, or treat them as adults and in 2 or 3 years of living hell in a state penitentiary find that they understand their actions and will never do something so heinous again
