    Too young to be arrested? That's insanity.

    (I have a student who, when he was 9, a policeman came to his door to tell his mother about an incident in which he was violent towards another student at school. The police officer told the boy that since he is 9 years old now, he can not go to juvenile. But when he turns 10, he can be held accountable. This is why he was so upset on his 10th birthday, according to a family member, when I asked the child why he was not happy about his birthday.)

    Our criminal justice system is way too soft. Young does not necessarily mean innocent.

    If society wants to consider a 10-year-old too young to be arrested that's one thing. One wonders why in the world we aren't getting this boy psychological help. Like in patient, intense, psychological help.
