A 16-year-old Fresno boy accused in the beating and robbery of a World War II veteran will be charged as an adult.

up2-21‘s insight:

Another juvenile is about to lose the most of the rest of his life, by going to prison for a lonmg term sentence by being tried as an adult. Once again, we are talking about a teen (16 year old) not an adult. What this kid did was heinous, but he still deserves tro be treated by the courts, as he is, which is a juvenile. To put this kid, or any kid intoan adult situation, one they can’t handle is wrong. Their brains are growing until their mid-twenties, so to me if they are still growing mentally, they should be treated as someone who is not fully grown mentally, which is a juvenile.
