    Jesse did not defend the rapists. What I read was if children that have been raised on social media make a bad decision should they be treated the same as an adult that does actually know better.

    •  I see. I stand by my point though. (0+ / 0-)

      If they do something evil like rape or murder, then they should be held accountable for it. Peer pressure or not, social media or not, wrong is wrong.

       I don't like the idea of going easy on kids/teenagers who commit crimes like that.

       I understand what JesseCW and Anastasia P are saying, but I disagree. Heavily. Whether a kid or an adult commits rape doesn't change the fact that they committed rape. It's wrong. Period.
