Quoting bbbt:" It has been a long day so bear with me if this doesn't make perfect sense. On my time with Babygaga ... [snip!] ... he or she is killed, but once he or she does the killing, they turn into an adult. Does that make sense? It does in my head. "
Quoting Chelsea Dawns Mama:" Our actions define who we are. Killing is considered an adult action, therefore, she made an adult decision ... [snip!] ... She wasn't thinking like a child, but an adult, therefore, she should be viewed as the choice she made, which is adult. JMO"
Quoting The failed abortion.[+2]:" I get what you're saying completely. It's completely, "That poor baby!" when the 17 year old gets killed. But then it turns to, "What a horrid,horrid man!" when the 17 year old kills."
Quoting E.P. Mom:" It's not that they "turn into an adult" when they kill someone, it's that they showed enough thought ... [snip!] ... at the adult level. I don't care who you are, a 14 yr old knows that it's wrong to kill something, let alone their own child. "
Quoting Katie[ღ]Siℓas:" Totally not on topic at all, [sorry.] but your avi made me go "awwwwwwwwwww" As for the topic, I ... [snip!] ... be tried as an adult. Meh idk I probably don't make any sense either, that's the best way I could think of putting it lol. "
Quoting HopingforaMiracle:" I understand what you are saying but I tend to believe those who murder should be tried as an adult if ... [snip!] ... killed the infant to cover being pregnant. And I don't call Zimmerman a child killer. I don't consider the victim a child."
Quoting bbbt:" But a teenager does not have the same mindset as an adult. That is why they are under guardianship until 18. They don't have the capability, according to the law, to be making their own decisions. "
Quoting Destinite:" I do not think this girl should be tried as an adult. I think she needs extensive counseling."
