Personally, I am for it, if the criminal has reached the age of accountability. Which can be determined by extensive studies from multiple Psychologists and Criminalogists and so forth. The age of accountability can be at any age. I was 4 when i learned that killing people and doing wrong to others is a terrible thing to do and shouldn't be done. Some are 7, 13, 18, and so forth. There is no set age of accountability.
