Ann Arbor teen's legal brief: Juvenile lifers deserve a 2nd chance

Ann Arbor teen's legal brief: Juvenile lifers deserve a 2nd chance | SocialAction2014 | Scoop.it
Sixteen-year-old Matilyn Sarosi spent the recent spate of snow days off school writing an 18-page paper for which she will get no academic credit. Sarosi's amicus, or friend of the court brief, argues that Michigan prison inmates who were sentenced to life for crimes, such as murder, committed when they were younger than 18 now deserve a chance at parole. Sarosi hopes the justices of the Michigan Supreme Court will give her brief thoughtful consideration.

8B Kittyz's curator insight, February 9, 6:14 AM

This article tells us about a massacres that happened in a town called Bouguere. Boguere is a town known for its gold and diamond trading. When the news people arrived, the street is littered with bodies, they had all been killed in an attack by anti-balaka militias. Most of the houses and businesses had been ransacked and some burned down. The people that's not killed had fled. It was the entire region’s fear and hatred of the commander, they said, that stoked the anger and thirst for revenge that lead to the recent attacks against the town’s Muslim population. Muslims are focused to leave their home, but they have nowhere to go, they’re born here. Day after day, men,

women and children have been killed with guns and machetes, some left to rot in the streets.


This help me to understand Africa might be a dangerous country to live in because of it’s religious diversity. It teaches me how people are treated when they have a different religion, how different is their their everyday life.
