I think that the law of sentencing children is very outdated. If you look back in history, the young children used to be extremely disciplined by their parents and such. (Not blaming all the parents). As time went on...the age of the criminals seem to drop dramatically, weather it is just showing off how tough they are or just being caught up in the criminal element of life. Basically, the law should be reviewed and the age dropped to scare off the young gangs into feeling less safe to do what they wish. If they had to worry about going to jail for their crimes, they might not be so bold about it.
