We the people propose & call to action the effective petitioning & enactment of
JUNIORS JUSTICE ACT:
The Protection Of Minors from Gang Violent Assaults, Committed by Adults & Inflicted On Minors Act.
In the JUNIORS JUSTICE ACT, we seek to protect all “Juniors” (Minors) from becoming victims of Gang Violent Assaults by proposing that when a Gang Violent assault is committed by an adult and inflicted on a minor, the 1st degree charge yield a CLASS A felony, & the 2nd degree charge yield a CLASS B felony and be held in the same Strict Liability Crime standards as Pedophilia & statutory rape where the offender doesn’t have to necessarily have to have knowledge of the victim being a minor —- simply committing the gang assault on the minor alone would be a violation of the proposed law —-
In criminal law, strict liability is liability for which mens rea (Latin for "guilty mind") does not have to be proven in relation to one or more elements comprising the actus reus (Latin for "guilty act") although intention, recklessness or knowledge may be required in relation to other elements of the offense. The liability is said to be strict because defendants will be convicted even though they were genuinely ignorant of one or more factors that made their acts or omissions criminal. The defendants may therefore not be culpable in any real way, i.e. there is not even criminal negligence, the least blameworthy level of mens rea.
If you #StandWithJunior join us as we #StandWithJustice and effectively petition for and enact the #JuniorsJusticeAct; penalties of which may serve as deterrents from gangs not only committing Gang Violent Assaults On Minors, but Deter gang recruitment of minors because of the higher penalties enforced on crimes committed on “Juniors” (Minors).
