michele larsen started this petition to Australian Parliament

To the President and Members of the Legislative Council of Western Australia in Parliament Assembled.

We the Undersigned support - as a result of the gradual increase of Anti-Social behaviour by children under the age of 14 who cannot be charged of a criminal offence because the law enables them to use as a defence "Doli Incapax", or 'defence of infancy', to avoid criminal prosecution in certain situations.

We therefore as the Legislative Council to recommend to the Minister for Education that the state Government via the Ministry of Education into School Cirriculum a Course designated to formally educate children between the ages of 10 to 15 years of age about their conduct,rights,roles and responsibilities as law abiding citizens in particular their understanding off committing an offense,and the impact such offences have on victims,and the wider community.

Children so formally educated about committing such offences would not be able to use as a defence " Doli Incapax" the defence of infancy.

And your petitioners as in duty bound,will ever pray.
