    when kids get life
    Posted under politics (my fav. vice) by me on Tuesday October 09 2007 @ 10:05PM PDT
    I may have to stop watching Frontline, lest I be driven to patronize Eli Lilly. If you have a high tolerance for the depressing you should watch this episode:

    It's funny there was a ballot prop in CA a number of years back that gave prosecutors the independent power to try children as adults. I voted that year specifically to vote against that proposition. It passed 66 to 33 % (of course).

    Another interesting thing is my continued belief that parenticide should not be punished as harshly as a normal murder (I mean, jeesh, if someone is going to kill someone, I'd think that their parents are probably, ipso facto, deserving).
