Patrick T. Ott: Legislation declaring adults as juveniles is juvenile
|Published: 02-07-2024 7:05 PM
This bill in the Massachusetts Senate awaiting passage, declaring people 18-20 years old are juveniles, in essence is juvenile. The Democrats are grasping at straws, trying to manipulate our youth.
From one extreme to the next. Lowering the voting age to 16, which has been bandied about. Now extending the classification of 18- to 20-year-olds facing prosecution as juveniles? Our youth have endured quite a lot with the pandemic-related adversity. The Democrats in their “age” manipulating are doing disservice to young people in their journey from adolescence to adulthood.
