Youth is not a crime

Having been a youth some decades ago, I can say with authority that I would likely be a convicted felon if I had been caught doing the things I was involved as a youth, if not for Scouting and the MIT Highschool Studies program.

Most of us, particularly males, had similar experiences.

It’s well known that the human brain doesn’t fully develop till mid 20’s.  Unless our legislators are not human, they had similar experiences.

We should encourage our legislators to recognize this, and not treat most youth miscreants as criminals. We would want them to learn and grow and turn into the future citizens of character in our country, if possible.

God Bless America
