Won't. It. Is not against the law in the US to name someone wanted for a crime, regardless of their age

The little bastard was outed in the comments section. Pro Tip: If you name your baby Brionn he's going to end up on probation for robbery and an alleged rapist at 14.
 
2012-01-18 04:48:10 PM
According to numerous (non-CNN) articles, his name is Brionn Glasper.

One of many sources naming names- http://www.mercurynews.com/breaking-news/ci_19759328

And already on probation for robbery.

Boy, I bet his parents are proud of him.

He may be a rapist, but at least he knows his math!

He was arrested yesterday. Mommy is planning a $3,000,000 lawsuit for slandering the boy's good name. We will see how far that goes when the DNA tests are completed.

It was brought out in the local news (SF Bay) that he is African American. It was hinted that the victims were white, but if that's the case, it's certain that he will never be charged with "hate crimes".

It's never a hate crime to love those naughty little white girls, who almost certainly encouraged it and had it coming.

Could the women be charged with sexual contact with a minor? Leave it to some California prosecutor to try it.

Ugh. Some goddamned retarded parents named the kid "Brionn" instead of just "Brian." No *wonder* he turned into a rapist.

This isn't a "youthful mistake". If you commit a big-boy crime, you should accept big-boy consequences.

It is not a hate crime just because you commit a crime against somebody of another race.

It is a hate crime if you attack somebody because of their race, religion or sexual identity.

Most intelligent people can figure that out.

How stupid are these women?

He doesn't have a gun, just pretends, and not once while he's "raping" them does he remove both hands to show he's unarmed? Are these midget women?

Punt the little farker. Stop being scared, people. You're what's wrong with this country.

It isn't really just about them not understanding the severity of what they're doing.

Kids make decisions, biologically speaking, in a fundamentally different way from adults. They use their limbic system (emotional center) much more than adults do, which accounts for their general impulsiveness and desire for instant gratification, instead of having things like foresight or an appreciation of consequences. They're also very much still learning and forming their own personality and emotional / social understanding.

The point is that, with the proper attention, kids and young teenagers have a MUCH better chance of being successfully rehabilitated into functional members of society than adults do. If, on the other hand, they spend the next 20 years in a full-on prison with adult inmates, their chances of being socialized into a normal human being is essentially 0%. If you're going to put a 14-year-old into an adult prison for the entirety of their formative years, you may as well just automatically give them a life sentence.

I agree with you that the mind of a young person is much more impulsive than that of an older person, however, In this case, I would argue that the 14-year-old knew EXACTLY what he was doing, and would do it again, given the chance, since he did it twice already. This isn't a case of doing something dumb because he fell in with the wrong crowd.

Can he be rehabilitated? Given the systems in place, I doubt it. Sorry for being cynical.

i don't know where cnn is coming from on this because i have seen other news outlets release the names of minors involved in serious felonies (didn't even have to be a sex offense)

on a side note, my wife watches the A&E show "Beyond Scared Straight" I remember watching the movie back in the early 80's of course kids then and kids now days are much different and I told my wife with the kids today and their attitudes these scared straight programs don't really work. Now if the tagline was "Beyond Scared Straight: Now with more PITA" it might actually make some young teenagers wake up. Especially when the kids are brought in if one of the jailers says "one of you is gonna get traded for a carton of smokes, let's find out who"

wife doesn't think it's funny though

People who strong arm rape strangers like this are missing something necessary to function as responsible human beings. Keep in mind he was on parole at the time. A 14 year old raping two adult women does not appear to be a likely candidate for rehab. Unfortunately, it's likely he'll see little time, if any, and we can be almost certain he will rape and/or murder someone in the future.

I didn't disagree with that. In fact I said explicitly that it wasn't about them not understanding what they're doing. Of course he knew what he was doing. The point was that the adolescent impulsive thought-action process can more easily circumvent things like.. well... being a decent person. But it can also be more easily corrected than a less pliable adult brain can be. This isn't an excuse, more like a simple truth that must be understood and dealt with accordingly.

And I won't disagree that our rehabilitation systems aren't very good. But I still object to the idea that a 14-year-old kid needs to be locked away in prison for 25 years because "he knew what he was doing". At the very least that is the wrong reason to do it. If it ends up that we waste peoples lives that way because we don't put enough effort into the actual "correction" in our correctional system, that is a failure of our system as a whole.
