Summary: On June 3, 2016, a fourteen year old boy attended one of Donald Trumps political rally's in New Mexico. Prosecutors say that he was later charged with 2 felonies, and was tried as an adult for throwing a rock at the police. The police later stated "We don't want to make an example out of a 14-year old. We want to guide him in the right direction." It is clear that the governments idea of the penal system was to educate and rehabilitate juveniles so as to attack what were believed to be roots of juvenile delinquency-a lack of moral education and standards.
Connection: Throughout the U.S, the women march occurred as the First Step to take in action opposing the new president. Many civilians united by fear and rage that Donald Trump has caused people to stress. Just like the boy, people felt the right to rage and come together because of how they felt.
Question: Although the 14 year old boy was in the wrong by throwing a rock at authorities, do you think he should have been charged with 2 felonies and tried as an adult?
