In 2010, 12 year old Cristian Fernandez beat his two year old half brother to death in Jacksonville, Florida.
Also in Jacksonville in 2010, Charles Southern, 17, and Connor Pridgen, 16, lured Makia Coney from their private school and shot her in the head in a nearby field.
The number of mass school shootings committed by children under the age of 18 has also increased.
When adults commit murder, it's easy to judge, convict, and sentence them to either death or life in prison. But when the offender is a child, can we really in good conscience do either?
