    According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIH): "The parts of the brain responsible for more 'top-down' control, controlling impulses, and planning ahead—the hallmarks of adult behavior—are among the last to mature." Of course a 17-year-old should know it's wrong to hit anyone, but I'm sure he was shocked that his impulsive act resulted in death. I trust the court; I don't trust the media's motives; they love sensation and controversy.

    SCOTUS and a local court aren't in any way the same thing. Between SCOTUS, all Utah courts, the News Media, and the comments found on news articles... the most sensationalized BY FAR... is the comments.

    I'm just saying Janet's point isn't out of the ballpark.
