    an effort to be right if this

    Does that not bother you? Why do you want to let "kids" like that get off easy?
    is what you're taking from this.

    In the first place, we were talking about the teenage girls making death threats.

    We, as a Nation, rejected treating children like adults about 70 years ago when we started dedicating ourselves to concepts like reform, and started to realize that you cannot be just without also being humane.

    No, teenage girls making death threats is not the same thing as adults doing it.  From what I've seen, I'd say a five year sentence with a chance at parole in two and a shot at getting the crime expunged if they comply with parole terms would probably fit the crime for juveniles.

    If you think that's a slap on the wrist I really don't think there's a reason for us to converse.

    income gains to the top 1% from 2009 to 2011 were 121% of all income increases. How did that happen? Incomes to the bottom 99% fell by 0.4%

      I want the boys in prison, not the girls!

      Oh boy... I got myself into a stupid situation.

       I think the punishment for the girls is appropriate. Because they're friends with the rapists, it triggered my anger about the rapists and I got kind of off-topic.

       I've lost myself in anger because I hate what happened in Steubenville.

      Notice that this is a far more severe sentence than the juvenile rapists got!

      What the fuck is going on here?
