   I am responding to Stacey Gomes. Listen, my opinion is by the age of 12 or 13 a kid should know that it's wrong to kill. That doesn't mean they know. It's the responsibility of the parent to teach their kids. I think if the murder was not premeditated, the child should not be charged with murder, but should be sent somewhere to get help.

Now if the murder was premeditated, that's a different story. Then a kid should be charged with murder. They won't send the child to jail either way, but they should be harder on someone who commits a premeditated murder. That's how it is for the adults. Why can't that be the way it is for kids? n
