When Children Are Not Children: A 10-Year Old Murder Suspect Is Charged as An Adult

When Children Are Not Children: A 10-Year Old Murder Suspect Is Charged as An Adult | up2-21 | Scoop.it
To be sure, these are brutal allegations. But let's be clear about one thing: Even if he is charged as an adult, Kurilla is not an adult. He is a ten-year-old child....
up2-21's insight:

When a child is charged as an adult, the state is engaging in a legal fiction -- that commission of a criminal act somehow transforms the actor. With a swish of a legal wand, a child becomes an adult who can be punished as if he were an adult.

Except, of course, in reality. In reality, a child remains a child, no matter what the law says.

Despite more than three decades of litigation and oversight by federal judges, Cook County Jail remains a “civic embarrassment” where violence is so pervasive that correctional officers take inmates on “elevator rides” –code for beatings out of view of security cameras, said lawyers who filed a proposed class-action lawsuit Thursday.

The latest debate over corporal punishment continues, having been set off by NFL star Adrian Peterson beating his 4-year-old son with a tree branch to the point of bleeding and bruising, reportedly for pushing a cousin off a motorbike video game. Mr. Peterson was charged criminally with child abuse in Texas, where the incident occurred. From the enactment of the first child protection laws in the United States in the 1960s and ’70s, lawmakers have carved out a corporal-punishment exception for p

Dorothy Retha Cook's curator insight, October 23, 8:39 AM

Just because the person making the allegation was white! and all those accused were black !  Texas has a race discrimination thing; In all truth this video brings to mind how the Texas police did Jennifer Jeffley and with no true evidence other than what he police wrote up after numerous hours of questioning her by herself at 15 years old then the police wrote a statement and told her to sing it and they would let her go home. How can they arrest 10  men and a woman for gang raping a person with no evidence but the color of her skin , family and friends being WHITE! If 10 men gang raped a person at 16 years old there had to be some blood shed from her virgina ! No evidence but words and to arrest people in their underwear there is much disrespect for African Americans in Texas now that gives insight on how Jennifer Jeffley was done not as a thought but as an fact as the same was done on this video! Please watch it! I would say our justice system needs repair but no it needs total reform!!!!
