      I am xhocked that not just the USA treats children as adults when it suits them but we do too!?!

      Why define children for some actions bit not others. Are they children or not?

      If they are children then they MUST be treated as children and not adults when is suits some pple in the justice system.

      This is WRONG, WRONG, WRONG and I am shocked that this is happening in my country - a civilised country no less.

      Australia is a signatory to the Convention on the Rights of the Child. We need to ensure that children and young people are given the rights they deserve, especially as they have the responsibilities of adulthood (ie going to jail) but not the rights (ie voting)

      Its just so abhorrent that a country like Australia can get away with breaking international laws and look away from such obvious human rights abuses and blatant racism and torture against young ppls regardless of what they may or may not have done

      Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Apply the Golden Rule bureaucrats and politicians.
