In my opinion, youth should not be subject to the death penalty. If they have to do time for the rest of their life for murder, I can understand, but death who are we to say so. In my belief, they should not be tried as an adult until they are 21. They cannot drink or buy cigarettes until 21, so why should they be tried as an adul?
