It is 10 years old in UK

I think that criminal responsibility or whatever should correspond with age of consent. Can you have sex with a ten year old in England?

Catholics are not responsible for their actions before God until about 12/13. I think it would he a good idea for 12/13 year olds to take sine sort of civic training and oath at 12/13.

I disagree with anyone who says people should be killed for their crimes. It doesn't matter to me  ...

I agree. Death penalty is primitive.
My problem is simple: I just know better than everyone-else!

I think it all depends on the severity of crime. I do agree that juveniles should be excecuted if th ...

Chinese children these days mature faster compared to their parents, hence the outdated law must be amended to take that into consideration, and lower the criminal responsibility age to 12!  Many school children have been exposed to porn and violence on the internet, influencing them into bad behavior and crimes at a young age, so lowering the age to 12 is fully justified.  Many junior high students have even been seen smoking after school, so they are not as young and innocent as people imagine!

This discussion has gone in the wrong direction; too much talk about death penalty, when in fact many juvenile crimes other than murder are committed!  The criminal responsibility age should be lowered to 12 so that juveniles from that age are held liable for their crimes.  Society must be protected from these criminals; age should not be used by them to avoid their responsibility!
