5 children, 40 felonies and counting.

Those five poor, underprivileged inner city children, who have beaten an old man to death, have been sentenced to a combined 40 felonies, one of them still has a later court date.

What was all of that, of how it is guns that allow young kids to do horrible things?

The older ones are looking at life in prison ... at 15, that's going to be some serious hard time. The younger ones, two "children" aged 13, are facing 12 years at most. I find age to be a very artificial border, it just seems strange to me that being born 600 days earlier would be the difference between juvie and life in prison.
