What a load: Justice system fails again. Someone tell me why a guy who's a month and a half shy of being 18 gets tried as a minor for a murder. (btw, in Canada being charged as a youth means not much more than a slap on the wrist... our juvenile justice system is practically impotent, IMO) Is he somehow lacking the ability to understand his crime at an adult capacity because of that 45 days? It's even more a kick in the face considering that up here under accordance with the law 16 and 17 year olds CAN be tried as adults in cases of murder if a judge deems it so. And yet this one goes in the reverse direction. Sheesh.
