A 16-year-old Lawrence man pleads 'not guilty' to two counts of felony murder stemming from a double fatality shooting that occurred this weekend in East Lawrence.
Copy and paste the link:
No mercy for a killer who isn't honest with his crime.
Yeah, 16 is no man.
What a tragedy for all the familes affected by this event.
It depends on his state of puberty...
"A 16 year-old man?" Interesting turn of phrase. No doubt which way Dolph is leaning.
Should have read "16 year-old Lawrence youth" like it did at cjonline.com.
Bringing back the draft isn't a bad idea. Maybe then people would start to really think about whether bankrupting our country for a misguided adventure in nation building in the Middle East is really a good idea.Of course, the draft needs to apply equally to men and women and heterosexuals and homosexuals alike.
yeah, well that "young male" became a man at the point in which he stuck a gun in someones face and blew their head off!no sympathy here, he should be tried as an adult. And if he would have blown the head off one of your family members, then you would have wanted him tried as an adult as well.
I am not saying he shouldn't be tried as an adult. That should be determined after a careful examination and evaluation of the facts of the case. However, whether he is tried as an adult or not, that does not make a "16 year old youth" a "16 year old man." Such is the stuff of biased journalism and spin. As for the rest, don't speak for me and don't imagine for one minute that you would know how I would react if one of my family members had died due to the criminal acts of another.
I pray you never have to experience it baille........
