I am shocked to read that a 15 year old boy raped a 7 year old girl and excused due to he is a minor. This kind of criminals must be punished even though they are young. The boy already made a lot of crimes and escaped from the law due to his age. Most of the countries don't put the young criminals in to the jail. The law mentioned that a person must be above 16 years to put in to the jail. Young criminals take this as an advantage and doing their criminal activities.
This kind of child criminals are deserved for the punishment. They must keep in a home and made them to realize their mistakes. IF the law excuse this kind of persons, they will continue their criminal activities and the count of child criminals will be increased in day by day manner.
This kind of little boys whoever involved in criminal activities must be guide in a good way. They must be punished a little while for their mistake after that they must guide in a good way to realize their mistake. Government should take care about this kind of young criminals and change their activities and attitude to avoid this kind of criminal activities.
