video of the victim being choked and kicked while unconscious, and police found unauthorized charged to victim’s bank account for online video games and charges from McDonald’s. The second article I found is about a 10-year-old boy who was charged with homicide in Wayne County. Tristin Kurilla was at his grandparents’ house, when the he got angry with his grandmother Helen Novak and beat and choked her with a cane. She ended up dying later that day. Kurilla was originally being tried as an adult, but his attorney filed for the case to be moved to juvenile court and it was accepted. Kurilla says he had been honest and remorseful about the entire case.

In conclusion, after reading about both cases, I agree that both deserved to be charged only as juveniles. Both cases, yes indeed were morally wrong, and all the defendants knew what they were doing wrong, but being their ages, I think all of them have time to redeem their selves and can change to be on the right as they get older. I also know, that peoples brains aren’t fully developed until later ages, which in fact does hinder their ability to think rationally and 100% know the difference between right and wrong.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
