IMO, if you do adult crimes while fully appreciating how wrong those actions are, then you get treated as an adult, regardless of age. The little viper wasts to go to charm school? Wants the "chair"? Wants to be seen as the little big man? He just might get it. Along with everything that means ... late-night "dates" with Bubba and Rex from cell 249, a PhD in murder/rape/pillage, being strapped in, whatever. At some point, he's gonna get what's coming to him, right or wrong.
I heard an interview with his "mother" on the radio today. She said that her other kids had never been in trouble so she had no idea why she raised a little monster.
The PD said that this little punk had included other juvies in his crimes. It's going to be interesting to see how this shakes out.
I say let him serve the time for EVERY felony he's convicted of, with the sentances running CONCECUTIVELY and NO early release.
Adult crimes should equal adult time!
