Too Immature to be Punished?

Yet another ridiculous liberal policy proposal—from Scotland for a change—to stop sentencing criminals under the age of 25 to prison is obliterated by the good doctor over at Law & Liberty.

The idea that a man’s brain is so immature before age 25 that he does not know that all manner of crimes are wrong would suggest a revision of our electoral laws, for if a man can neither distinguish right from wrong nor control his impulses, should he have the vote? Should he, in fact, be considered of legal age? Should he be allowed even to choose his own career?
