I think that if a kid deliberately plans out to kill their parents or plans to kill someone like a serial killer then they should be treated just like an adult. They should have to deal with the consequences of their actions.

Con

Only living for less than 16 years isn't enough to understand life. I honestly believe that the parents are to blame for their children.

Pro

i think that no matter the age the child should be held responsible for brutally killing someone. if a child had plotted to kill someone and followed through with killing them then they should be responsible

Con

So with that logic. 6 year old kids that kill their own parents on accident or on purpose should be killed off.

Pro

no if it is an accident it is totally different they have to plot and have a plan to murder someone. then if they go through the plan then i think that they should be held responsible

If you commit one of 19 capital crimes under God's Law, you should face mandatory execution. One of those in murder and there is no exception for age.
