We should lower the age of criminal responsibility and also stop this nonsense of not naming so called minors who have in many instances committed major crimes – name and shame (although I have to say there is little acceptance of "shame" in our current society).

Why is this idea important?

It is a travesty that so called "children" (some approaching 18 years of age) get almost automatic anonimity, irrespective of the seriousness of their crime.

At the other end of the spectrum, "children" DO know the difference between right and wrong, even those at primary school level, and so should be held to book for their actions.

It is also accepted that young children are being used more and more to move drugs around because if caught there will be no actions taken because of their age.
