This iReport is part of an assignment:
14 year old Life without parole
Murder is bad and should be punished accordingly but something about 14 year old being put in Jail for the rest of his life without the possibility of parole just doesn't seem very right or American. For goodness sakes, you can't even sign a legal document when you're 14, smoke, join the army. This is totally unfair. Andrea yates killed all 5 of her children and gets a slap on the wrist, few years in a low security mental institute.Mary Winkler shoots her husband while he's sleeping. She claims he was abusing her. Shows no evidence. She gets sentenced for 210 days. She's an adult who is actually responsbile for herself and can leave a situation. but 14 year old Quantel Lotts gets life in prison because he is "old enough"? How come all the EXCUSES work for the other two but not for the 14 year old? How bout the fact he's such a little kid, how bout the fact he grew up in a abusive family? Hmm, see any bias? There's so many murder cases that occur between adults that don't even get sentencing close to this this severity. This is just wrong.
