    If a kid at the age of 16 can commit an armed robbery, then he’s old enough to have his name printed in the paper. This garbage about protecting juveniles from having their names revealed is getting old.

    Does anyone see a problem here. Teens are getting more and more out of control, When are people going to get the message and realize there has to be some sort of control to be used with them. So many seem to just do what they want with little if any repercussions. I find this very disturbing.. YEAH YEAH , I know I am uptight, really and this is the results of giving allowances to kids , letting some just go where ever and do what ever. Yeah like thats working out.

    That policy of not publicizing juveniles names dates from a time long ago, a time when teenagers still, for the most part, respected others and their property. Today’s kids, with those huge entitlement chips on their shoulders, feel they can commit crimes without fear of being caught or of incarceration.
    It’s time to change the laws. The Constitution was written, similarly, for people whose values no longer pervade our society. It’s time to change our laws to protect individuals from teenage thugs. If they think want to commit an adult crime, then their free meals will be in prison.
