A Change in Ruling Could Mean Hope For Children in Jail For Life

US Supreme Court Positive Youth Sentencing Ruling

In the United States, there is an ongoing problem dealing with the issue of children who are sentenced to life without parole. This looks like it is beginning to head for  change. The United States is the only country to do this to its children, but the Supreme Court is starting to look at this and pointing out one aspect of a child that is changing everyone's mind. A child's ability to change over time and learn the lesson faster than an adult could. This seems to be a lucky break for these children with such bad luck. Do you support this statement about a child's ability to change over time? If you do what else would you say should be considered?
