If gang members are going to act like savages, perhaps it's time to take the kid gloves off and treat them like savages.

I can see trying to rehabilitate a wayward youth, but there is no rehabilitation for people who can commit a crime like this.

Seriously. Fuck gang members. I mean, yeah, a lot of people turn to gangs when everything else in their life is shit and they really have nowhere else to go, but once you start BURNING people, my sympathy for you is gone. At least SF is doing a bit more about it. All the gang injunctions and whatnot.

We need to start treating children who do commit violent crimes as adults. If the kids know they will spend the rest of their lives in jail for these acts, perhaps it will be a deterrent. We used to treat these violent cases as an adult crime, but haven't for about 20 years.
