Allow me to think "out loud" for a moment...It seems to me committing murder is a pretty immature action. For the sake of argument I'll play along with a large portion of the country that suggests to commit murder is to take part in "adult activity." Why is it that these people suggest that when a child commits murder, an adult activity, they should therefore be adult enough to stand trial and be punished as an adult? By the same token, shouldn't we grant children, who show similar signs of being mature enough to handle adult activity, the right to drive cars, vote, and drink alcohol? I'm not suggesting that we should arbitrarily allow those who show signs of being an adult the latitude to pick and choose their responsibilities. We live in a country where the black and white definition of the difference between child and adult is their eighteenth year of life. We've got to have this arbitrary definition for the very reason that to do otherwise could prematurely turn a 14 year old murderer into a card carrying adult. On the other hand, we do grant adult membership, with restrictions, to 14 year old murderers. What do you think?
I'm really not sure of the appeal of Mark Bakalor's site, because frankly I suspect there is none, but hell, I check it at least thrice daily, and you should too!
