So, my girlfriend was telling me about this over the phone. A 15 year old girl brutally murdered her 9 year old neighbor. Thoughts? Should she be tried as an adult?
When asked why she told Police, "I wanted to know what it felt like to kill someone."

Personally, I think they should throw her ass away for a very long time.

She doesn't need to have her ass thrown away for a very long time. She needs mental help.

Good point, I was a little pissed off when I said that. She does need serious mental help.

15 year olds get into so many weird predicaments these days.

I'm going to go on the record and say that if you are 15, and have experienced death around you, you're too young for proper punishment, etc...

I don't think she should be tried as an adult, she's only 15. But I definitely do think she needs to be locked up for a very long time.

She's not an adult, therefore she should not be tried as one. There are laws for a reason.

Ugh. God. This kid is a f*cking c*nt.
Because destroying a family and taking one of their closest loved ones is the best idea, just because you want to know what it feels like to kill someone.

I think she has a mental issue, look at her parents.
I've gotten a lot of LOLs in my time but I choose not to sig them to not look like a pretentious douchebag





#16
Yeah! Throw her ass in jail. That'll teach her not to have psychological problems!
PM me for newts

I'm usually torn when someone poses the question of whether lor not an underage criminal should be tried as an adult, but this case makes me think that young ones who commit terrible and serious crimes should. They may not be developed, but going down that path to such an extent as ending someone else's life, I doubt there's much development that could fix those inclinations in a person. Yes, she needs mental help, but if she is dangerous to herself or others then she needs to be locked away as well.

She shoulda just read Crime and Punishment.

OT: Yes, she should be tried as an adult. 15 year-olds may be dumb, but they're old enough to know that murder is wrong. (Or at least illegal.)

wow that''s messed up...whatever ends up happening to her, the rest of her life is pretty much ****ed. there''s not much chance of living with the social norm after killing a 9 year old, no matter what age you are.
Too cool for a signature.

Doesn't the law allow prosecutors to attempt to try someone as an adult under special circumstances? I don't think the prosecution just arbitrarily broke the law.

Killing someone in a brutal fashion shows an adult level sophistication and decision making. She clearly plotted the act out, having dug a grave to hide her in prior to killing her, which in my mind seems to indicate she knew what she was doing. Trying her as a juvenile would seem to indicate that she wasn't old enough to know what was going on, which clearly isn't the case here.

Whether she was mentally sane enough to use good judgement, that is a different story.

IMO she should be tried as an adult and given the same punishment as an adult, however punishment that fits her mental state. It is clear she has issues, unfortunately I don't see a mental hospital as being able to fix those. It is a sad fact of life that some people are mentally beyond the capabilities of modern medicine today. She'll probably be locked up until they find a solution or until the end of her life.

Either way, mentally unstable or not, she's still a danger to society.

No because she's a girl. Believe it or not that's actually the way people think these days. They don't sentence based on the crime. They sentence based on the person who did it.

my policy is that if she can not vote or buy ciggarettes she should not be tried as an adult, she needs to be put in some type of mental place cus shes ****ed in the head, but shouldn't be tried as an adult
