remove all children below age of 16 from the criminal law provision

Why is this idea important?

we must deal with children and young persons in a caring child centered way and not push them through the meat grinder of the criminal law. Even in exceptional cases there are better ways to deal with young persons other than incarceration and stigmatisation.

 

It would be a sign of maturity and civilisation to deal with children under 16 in a diferent way than we are currently doing.
