Age of criminal responsibility?
This was on the news over the weekend so I'm amazed no one has asked the question on here so here goes.
Is 10 fair enough or should it be rasied or lowered. The childrens commissionaer, Maggie Atkinson thinks it should be 12, and that the Bulger killers should not have been prosecuted.
I think it's fine as it is, what do you think ABers?

Are you saying therefore that the killing of Jamie Bulger was just an unfortunate misjudgement by two minors and that they should never have been admonished in any way? What do you think should have been done?
Every criminal incident should be dealt with individually on a case by case basis. In that way, each child's comprehension of right and wrong could be tested to establish culpability.
