The three white teens accused of vandalizing a Confederate monument in Montgomery, Alabama will be tried as juveniles. Leonard Wilson, state commander of the Sons of Confederate Veterans is not pleased:
Since these men
are all 17 years old, they are responsible enough to be subjected to
facing adult charges," he said, "and it’s in the greater interest of
the community to do so because this act caused great emotional harm to
thousands of Alabama citizens.
I would suggest that if you really want to punish these kids force them to sit through one of Wilson’s history lessons. And while we’re at it let’s throw in H.K. Edgerton to boot.
