America: Locking Away Kids Forever

Irredeemable at age 14?

America is the only nation in the world that locks up minors for the rest of their lives without possibility of parole.  They could be as young as 13 years old.

“Juwan is one of them. He was a 16-year-old kid when he was arrested after he saw a companion kill a pizza deliveryman. The shooter was never convicted, but because Juwan was present and had a gun, he was sentenced to spend the rest of his life behind bars.” — ACLU website

    This is insane. Free the children!

  2. Christian Andy says:

    If all Americans raised their children by God’s law, we would have no need for prisons.

  3. Miley Spears says:

    Why can’t we vote until we’re 18 or drink until we’re 21 but can get life imprisonment when we’re 13? That doesn’t make sense. Everybody should have a second chance, especially young teenagers.

  4. Vernon K Avaritt III says:

    this sucks

  5. TawTew the Naturally Perfumed says:

    This is terrifically sad. We cannot call someone an adult to punish then but a child in all other ways. Let them learn from their mistakes and go back to their lives and families. Let our children go.

  6. Tom T. Trucker says:

    If we’d go back to executing them we wouldn’t have this problem.

  7. Lady Nigel B says:

    So many laws and so few jail cells let the flowers out so they can grow!

  8. Rev. Bootie says:

    America stop locking away kids forever! Execute them instead.
