If You Kill Someone, Then You’re Adult

A 15-year-old male student in Springfield, Oregon fatally shot two students and wounded 18 others. The assailant opened fire in his school’s cafeteria and was eventually wrestled to the ground by a fellow student. The assailant will be tried as an adult.

Another horrible murder took place in Pennsylvania. Police believe that a 16-year-old female and an 18-year male hung a friend who threatened to reveal the assailants plans to run away to Florida. The 16-year-old female will be tried as an adult.

These cases highlight the government’s selective treatment of some teenagers as minors and other teenagers as adults. If you want to drink a beer you’re a minor but if you kill someone, then you’re an adult. If the government had a bar, it would probably serve only adults and murderers.
