Death Penalty for Juveniles Ruled Unconstitutional!

"Today, the Court repudiated the misguided idea that the United States can pledge to leave no child behind while simultaneously exiling children to the death chamber. Now, the US can proudly remove its name from the embarrassing list of human rights violators that includes China, Iran, and Pakistan-nations that still execute juvenile offenders. It can take pride in knowing that it is now in the company of the honorable nations that abandoned this antiquated practice years ago."
- Dr. William F. Schulz, Executive Director of Amnesty International USA

I'm very excited!!!! VA is one of the states that has the juvenile death penalty and so I'll be glad to see it go.

That is good . That bit is right, too-that does seem rather ironic.

seems like celebrating the end of child labor or people not getting their hands chopped off for stealing.

as in, all reprehensible, Dark Ages practices that went out with the 19th century.

welcome to the 20th century, USA.

Perhaps we can get out of the dark ages and teach our children that killing is wrong.



Unless that is too moral.....

and the abolition of the death penalty is a great, moral place to start.

what kind of message are we sending to children when we demonstarte that killing is wrong by killing someone?

I don't think anyone is arguing that children shouldn't be taught that killing is wrong.

Really, it's not all black and white. I think the death penalty on juveniles is wrong. I won't however defend the terrorists who wish to kill thousands of innocent people.

Do you think that the parents of most juvenile killers taught them that killing was right?
