3. "you don't have an adult brain until your mid 20s. " In response to Reply # 2
litterally, your brain cannot weigh cause and effect that well when you are young. that's why I was running up credit card bills when i was in college and i can keep a budget and pay an insurance bill on time now that i am like 31.
but for the sake of argument, since we are talking about legal shit, let's say 18.
if you are below 18, you should not be treated by the system as an adult. because you aren't.
not legally. not neurologically. not at all.

18. "the Ray Allen break in is a great example " In response to Reply # 17
A bunch of black kids doing the exact same shit in Florida to a white star whose white wife (Ray’s wife is half white, but favors her Latina side if I recall correctly) was home with their white children and there’s no fucking way they wind up in some diversion program as a slap on the wrist. Further, the public outrage would have been considerably different. They’d have been all manner of thugs and gangbangers and troublemakers.
Their identities would have been plastered everywhere, social media accounts scrutinized to death, and their harsher punishments justified by every pundit Faux News had on staff.
There’s an awful lot of denial about the way these situations are dealt with along racial lines, but I think you’re dead on.
