what an oustanding amount of BS can come out of this woman for God's sake
quoted: From the time we learned that a 12 year old commited murder
Cristian did NOT commit MURDER
, pushing someone and leaving him unconscious is not murder much less if is done for a child. That's something that could happen to anyone. Doctors says that David (the tiny 2 year old victim, like she calls him) would be alive if his mother would have taking him to the hospital on time. But exists a repugnant law aimed to destroy the lifes of children who allows this woman to commit child abuse by convicting a child like an adult or even sentencing to LWOP if this case goes to trial.
quoeted: decisions such as this are never easy
I don't buy it. Bet it turns ou to be a candy to these damn cowards that have the guts to call justice trying childrens as adults. Shameful, repugnant, barbaric and inhuman.
quoted: Childrens are teached at an early age not to bit, scratch or kick
OMG!!!! how much wisdom on that statement.
True, children's are taught how to behave not all of them anyway, still kids bite, scratch and kick others kids, should we prosecute them all of them as adults?
quoeted: surely basic concepts understood by those who grow up on difficult environments. However that does not excuse crime it does mitigate punishment in some cases. This is the reason why we have been working so hard towards a solution that will both punish and rehabilitate.
Since the moment you brought this to Adult court you took out of the table the rehabilitation. Adult prison creates hardened criminals not rehabilitates. And that's your main purpose, make sure this kid does not have a chance at life giving him an adult and legthy sentence with an adult an legthy probation. You just want to make sure he will stand in prison for life and make him incapable of having a productive life outside of prison when he is out after maybe 20 or 30 years?
quoted: the misinformation being circulated
only by you Mrs Corey. There has not being any misinformation for anyone else.
quoted: We never, ever demonstrated any intention to seek LWOP
don't buy it.
quoted: Remember, when the juveniles laws were first enacted, noone could have dreamed that kids so young could commit such henious crimes
please, who are you trying to fool. Kids has always killed, this is not something new. Juvenile system is the appropiate place for this children actually. Trying to make believe the public otherwise is just ridiculous. Is been proved that Adult sentences don't deterr cime and make kids more dangerous when they come out of prison being a danger to the comminity you so much claim want to protect.
quoted: Due to our rule of ethics I am not at liberty of discussing Cristians background
however you already did that. BTW, do you really have ethics at all, I honestely doubt it.
To end this, There is not justice in trying kids as adults, is barbaric, inhumane, cruel, is child abuse. Is an act of pure evil and cowardice.
The truth is that recidivism is higher among teenagers who have been charged as adults for their crimes. Incarcerating childrens in adult prisons deprives children offenders of adequate counseling and education. Honestely "Adult time for adult crime" is a failure. It may be a catchy sentence but it doesn't work.
International Law regarding children.
(a) No child shall be subjected to torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. Neither capital punishment nor life imprisonment without possibility of release shall be imposed for offences committed by persons below eighteen years of age;
(b) No child shall be deprived of his or her liberty unlawfully or arbitrarily. The arrest, detention or imprisonment of a child shall be in conformity with the law and shall be used only as a measure of last resort and for the shortest appropriate period of time;
(c) Every child deprived of liberty shall be treated with humanity and respect for the inherent dignity of the human person, and in a manner which takes into account the needs of persons of his or her age. In particular, every child deprived of liberty shall be separated from adults unless it is considered in the child’s best interest not to do so and shall have the right to maintain contact with his or her family through correspondence and visits, save in exceptional circumstances;
(d) Every child deprived of his or her liberty shall have the right to prompt access to legal and other appropriate assistance, as well as the right to challenge the legality of the deprivation of his or her liberty before a court or other competent, independent and impartial authority, and to a prompt decision on any such actionIronically, although crimes against children are universally regarded as heinous, the United States engages in state-sanctioned child abuse by sentencing some of them to life in prison without the possibility of parole. The United States is the only country in the world where youth can receive a LWOP sentence, which means no hope of release from prison in their lifetime.
What Florida is doing to Cristian is child abuse.
that link has infurated me so much. what a bunch of BS. THERE IS NOT JUSTICE ON TRYING KIDS AS ADULTS. THERE IS NOT JUSTICE ON AN ADULT PLEA DEAL. A PLEA DEAL ON ADULT COURT WILL ONLY BE DIRECTED TO DESTROY CRISTIANS LIFE.
