Children to judge children.

This new proposal that children should judge other children is interesting. Read here.

Luckily for the victims it's sentencing is limited to paying cash, clearing up their vandalism or writing a letter of apology to their victims. You see unlike these out of touch judges kids are very much into crime and punishment. If it wasn't off the table then the death penalty for stealing someones pedal bike would probably become a common occurrence.

Although if I was a judge I would be very concerned about being seen as one of the establishment. Clearly they are going to have to be very picky about who they choose. Are they all going to be high flyer's destined for private schools?

It will be interesting to see what sort of sentences these people give out and if they have to conform to stringent guidelines defining justice.
