    13 years old boy committed a crime, Is he wrong?

    What if a 13 years old boy who live in a village or a small town without any good education committed a crime, do you think that's absolutely his fault?

    1) If it's his fault, what's your advice?

    2) If it's not his fault, what's your advice?

    Actions have consequences.
    If someone breaks the law they have to deal with the punishment that comes with it. The only other options are to fight to have the law overturned or simply attempt to runaway and start anew somewhere else.
    Lots of people come from toxic environments but do not break the law. In the U.S.A. a 13 year old and even younger can be tried in court as an (adult) depending on the crime that was committed.
    Nevertheless it's always a possible that a (great) lawyer and a (sympathetic) jury may elicit a favorable verdict.
    It's really a roll of the dice.

    Depends on fully what he has done. If he has killed another human you should have a sense of knowing thats wrong regardless of how you were raised. If you ever try to take something that isnt yours from a father, mother, or someone else they react hostile and smack your arm/hand so you should learn that it is wrong to steal from others. Most laws can be learned though simple means in small villages and outside real citys/towns that enforce rules. Most places that still have these small arenas are slum/tribal areas in places like Africa, India, Russia, lots of South America and also China.

    If a child/person is not taught rules/laws than you can't hardly expect them to automatically know what those rules/laws are. However acts of anger/rage or sociopathic tendencies should be dealt with in a serious manner. I would think that most mentally/emotionally sound individuals wouldn't hurt someone/thing unless as an act of self-defense.

    I know of a 13 year old boy who killed a four year old boy.  He was tried as an adult and was given life.  I agree he got what he deserved.
