INPUT: What they did is inhumane! It was an adult act of a cold blooded killer, therefore they should be tried as adults!!!
Juvies who committed premeditated and brutal murders should remain incarcerated!!! I say NO to parole within 15 years of incarceration… I don’t believe in redemption and as well as rehabilitation – what another 2.2 million from taxpayer$ monie$?
The United States is the only country that sentences juveniles to life in prison without parole, and Pennsylvania has about 450 juvenile lifers, more than any state, according to studies on juvenile sentencing.
For more than two hours inside City Council Chambers, committee members listened to testimony on the bill, which would allow current juvenile lifers the chance to appeal their sentences and grant convicts parole hearings after serving 15 years of a life sentence, and every three years thereafter.
Supporters said its aim is not to provide free passage out of prison, but to allow for a review of cases years after the offenses. They said life sentences without parole for juveniles are inhumane.
