Even the Locke Foundation thinks “raising the age” is a good idea

It doesn’t happen very often, but every now and then some of the folks over on Right-wing Avenue do, to their credit, get something right. Happily, it seems to have happened today.
The Locke Foundation released a report this morning that once again calls into question North Carolina’s absurd and archaic system of automatically treating 16 and 17 year old kids accused of crimes as adults. In this regard, it remains one of just two states to have such a law.
In weighing in on the issue, the Lockers seem likely to give added impetus to the ”Raise the Age” movement/campaign — long spearheaded by the good people at Action for Children NC .
Good job guys. Wish you could keep it up.
