A Drunken Ride
The article, ?A Drunken Ride? brings to light many questions about the legal system of our country and its apparent leniency. In the article, a boy makes the decision to drive intoxicated with four other friends in his vehicle. As the night progresses he ends up in a collision and as a result, many people loose their lives.
One of the biggest issues here is to what end do we need to punish our children when they make mistakes. Are their minds still open to change Are they able to recognize that they made a mistake and make amends, or do they need to be punished long into their adult life for a mistake that was made while the law still considered them unable to make decisions for themselves The law does not recognize a person as being able to make a major decision for themselves until they reach the age of majority, which in most states is 18, however, more and more minors are committing so-called adult crimes, like Tyson Baxter.
