The New Death Penalty Ruling

So now kids under 18 can't get the death penalty.

I've never really decided whether the death penalty itself was a good thing or not. I think the main question we have to answer indefinately is whether "justice" is the same as, or should serve as, "revenge". If we can figure out if justice and revenge are the same thing, or if they relate to each other directly, then we'll know if the death penalty is right.

I wonder if murders committed by teens will rise due to this new ruling. Only time will tell...
