One point of view at this topic is that the minimum age of 10 for criminal responsibility should remain stable. To begin with, the biggest argument that supports this opinion has to do with the fact that many crimes, more or less serious, are committed by young children even at the age of 10 years old. This fact can be noticed at the Bulger case. More specifically, James Patrick Bulger was a two year-old boy from Kirkby, Mereyside, England who was abducted, tortured and murdered by two ten-year-old boys, Robert Thompson and Jon Venables. He was led away from the shopping center where he was with his mother and his body was found in Liverpoool, two days after his murder.

Anyway, he whacked every window out of the Finch boy’s car.’” (Stanley Basca to Elvis) (page 84) This passage from a trial scene, shows that Not only did Davy have no remorse for killing the two young men, he actually lured them to his home where his family slept unknowing. So, the reader is led to feel sympathetic towards a man who destroyed someone’s vehicle, lured criminals to his family home where his kid brother and sister slept, and then he shot the two boys in front of his eleven-year-old brother. Shooting Basca and Finch was all premeditated. Ruben states “Somehow he was holding the little Winchester he’d carried in the timber that afternoon. And holding it comfortably.” (page 49) Not only did Davy bring the gun to bed with him, but had the gun loaded and ready to go before the light was switched on to see who was at the door.
Think about how often people get arrested and how often trials are held every year, let alone everyday. Oftentimes, innocent people are accused and charged for a crime that wasn’t there fault. This was the case for Adnan Syed, an innocent guy who was put in jail for a murder case. On January 13, 1999, Hae Min Lee was murdered at the age of 17. The evidence for this case was very unexplainable, but of course, the state went after Hae’s ex-boyfriend Adnan who really had nothing to do with the murder.
The main argument expressed in the article "Greg Ousley is Sorry for Killing His Parents. is that Enough?" is that juveniles/kids should not be sentenced to prison for long term, even if they commit severe crimes, and they have the ability to rehabilitate themselves, so they should not serve this long term sentences when they are showing improvement. An example that gives the author is the case of Greg Ousley, a teen who killed his parents at the age of 14, and that now with a age of 33 years he still serving the 60 years sentence. The author Scott Anderson interviewed Greg during a few sessions.
On October 7, 1998, Matthew Shepard, a gay 21-year-old college student, was abducted by two men who took him to a remote area, tied him to a fence, severely beat him with the butt of a pistol, and left him to die in the cold of the night (Matthew Shepard Foundation, “About Us”). Matthew Shepard’s death became a symbol for the deadly effect that prejudice can have on an innocent, young adult, and it gave people a chance to begin to understand how to accept people of different sexual orientations. However, 18 years later, America still hasn’t learned from Matthew Shepard’s death, and that is most evident in the Orlando night club shooting. June 12, 2016 brought upon a new era of anti-gay hate crimes when 49 people were killed and 53 were injured
