I read about these Canadian crime stories.
1. Two sisters from Toronto, Ontario drown their mother, in the bathtub, to received money after her death. They were imprisoned for 4 years.
2. A 12-year-old girl from Medicine Hat, Alberta plots a triple murder of her parents and 8-year-old little brother to be with her 23-year-old boyfriend. Now, the boyfriend is jailed for life, while the girl gets 10 years. She will be released, in 2016.
In my opinion, in the States, the young women would have been serving a lengthy prison sentence, if not life. I have no disrespect towards Canada...but...isn't the Canadian law too soft on young killers?
I would prefer our minors to be treated too lenient than us putting minors on death row and executing them and also perhaps later finding out they are innocent.
Perhaps our justice system is too lenient on minors but we do allow the realization that people can change and want the focus to be on rehabilitation for the minor and to get help in prison and to leave and still have a chance at life. We are not a country as some are to execute and have minors on death row.
How many people have been proven innocent in your country who have been executed? I would rather live in a place that might be too lenient than a country that fries innocent people and allows minors to be on death row and not give a minor a chance to rehabilitate.
Lookie here, minors who could have a change to rehabilitate, executed in your state.
If I was bothered to, I could find many cases in US law where a person was given a light sentence when they have done horrible things.
I could find deals made with US devils, like our Karla. It happens everywhere, not just in Canada.
But my country is more let us help minors and your state seems to be, no matter the age, no one changes, fry them.
