Today the Supreme Court started to hear a case about kids who committed crimes and were sentenced to Life in Prison with out Patrol. Here is the question is it to much? At what point do you think that you can rehabilitate a minor or is it Cruel and Unusual? Where do you drawl the line at this crime is so bad it deserves Life and this one doesn't?

Here are some examples of REAL cases where kids received life in Prison:

In 1989, Joe Sullivan was convicted of breaking into a Pensacola, Fla., house, stealing jewelry and coins, and raping the 72-year-old woman who lived there. He also had 17 prior offenses - he was 13 yrs old at the time.

Terrance Graham, who was involved in armed robberies at 16 and 17, he is now serving a life sentance in Florida.

Lee Boyd Malvo a the age of 17 was sentenced to life for helping out in three-week shooting spree across Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.

The Wall Street Journal posted:
A July study by Florida State University's Public Interest Law Center estimated that nationwide, there were 111 inmates in seven states serving life-without-parole sentences for non-homicide crimes committed as juveniles. The overwhelming majority, 77, were in Florida prisons.

So what are your thoughts?
