Have you heard fo the new piece of legislation (RA9344 - Youth in Conflict with the Law) by Sen. Pangilinan? It automatically de-criminalizes a juvenile if he is 15 years and below, no matter how heinous the crime. Whlie I'm for the protection of juvenile offenders, I feel that the problem before was the state of the prison system, where juveniles are mixed in with hardened criminals. That was the problem that should have been addressed, not the de-criminalization of heinous crimes. http://www.lawphil.net/statutes/repacts/ra2006/ra_9344_2006.html Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
