I saw on the news yesterday that young offenders cannot now be sentenced as adults unless the prosecutor in the case can somehow prove that they should be sentenced as such. Let's say a young offender commits a crime of sufficient seriousness (let's say murder). Does a prosecutor have to have proof of adult intent in a case such as this? What is the use of law if those laws have no teeth in them? Young offenders should be charged and treated as adults (with identities published). Then you will see youth crime statistics go down. It is the bleeding heart component of our society that has taken the teeth out of our laws. If you do the crime be preparded to do the the time.
