Death penalty for minors

Well the supreme court decided to not allow sentencing a minor to the death penalty because its unconstitutional.



What is all of your inputs on this??

The executions, the court said, violate the Eighth Amendment ban on cruel and unusual punishment.



Those teens who murdered was very cruel and unusual punishment.

what are the circumstances that a minor would be tried as an adult? I think the death penalty should be on the table at that point.

Jay Severin brought up perfect examples to why capital punishment should be used even for teens who have commited awful crimes of murder.



What if we caught that kid alive who killed all those students a couple of weeks ago? He had a smile on his face when he was killing his own classmates. I'd rather have such a satanist be put to death than have my tax dollars pay for his meals and playtime.

Why do you even bother to listen to Jay Severin. All of his predictions are mostly wrong...



-Jay predicted that Terri's feeding tube would be reinserted last week.

-He also predicted Air America would last 3 months.

-He also predicted John Kerry would beat George W. Bush in the election.

-He also predicted that John Kerry would lose the primary election and should just quit.

-He also predicted that Hillary Clinton would run in the Democrat primary after she sabotaged John Kerry's campaign.

-Jay's accurate record is based mostly on the fact that he's been in the business for over 20 years.

-Jay calls his followers "Boston's Best and Brightest." They seem to like that.

It is his opinion on how things may turn out. Lots and lots and lots of people listen to Jay Severin. Among all the talk radio shows, I find Jay Severin the best because he has too much common sense. He is a great American.

I still feel that he has been wrong on many things last year and guess what...he's most likely going to be wrong again. That is my drift.

I'll make a new topic so this doesn't go too much, off topic.
