Supreme Court Ponders Life For Minors

The Supreme Court has agreed to re-evaluate laws stipulating whether juveniles convicted of murder can be imprisoned without a chance for parole. This is a continuation of a 2010 ruling prohibiting such sentences for teens not convicted of a killing.

In their evaluation, the justices will look to two cases involving men who are serving life without parole for crimes committed when they were 14.

As of 2005, no one under 18 can be eligible for the death penalty. Last May, the courts concluded that teenagers who haven’t committed murder can not receive life without parole bids.

The court will begin its re-evaluation process in 2012.

That’s cool but some of these bad lil M.f.s don’t deserve to see the light of day.

What’s your thoughts on this subject???
