Pack of wolves

If you go along to any estate and see the age of kids marauding around like a pack of wolves, you'd see that reducing the age of criminal responsibility to eight or nine would be vital; that is according to Lawrence Lee who was solicitor for Jon Venables, one of two 10-year-olds who murdered two-year-old James Bulger in 1993. Why? Almost 3,000 crimes were committed last year where the suspect was too young to be prosecuted, the BBC has learned. Figures show there were about 1,300 incidents of criminal damage and arson, and over 60 sex offences where suspects were under-10s in England and Wales.

The number of children who commit sex crimes is on the rise. Campaigners say youngsters at risk of offending need more help, but why are they behaving in this way in the first place? As a proportion of total crime the numbers are small. But children murderers and offenders? Isn't it very terrifying of what has come to the children, (and their parents) these days? Such innocent creatures turned into wolves from what misguided mind they have. Those years are very critical for their learning minds, they should be shielded from the criminal environment, other perpetrating children, and media they are exposed to. "The best approach to serious child offenders is to deal with them as children who need effective care measures." For parents it is always taking time training up a child in a way he should go, for when he is old (and even still young) he will not depart from it.
