Agreed, however I'll see ya that and raise you a; If you can be charged as an adult under the age of adulthood. It defeats the purpose of labeling them children. Therefore go back to the way things were for centuries, 12/13+ is adulthood (physiologically, mentally is debatable, but I know way to many older folk that keep thinking they're indestructible as if they were teens, so mentality isn't really an argument on that). This way, they really can do adult time, not to mention we attack the criminality problem at an earlier age. PLUS it means ridding ourselves of the pathetic child labor laws so these bastards can start work earlier and prevent criminal activity sooner!
