This one is easy

Supreme Court To Decide If Life In Prison For Juveniles Is "Cruel And Unusual" HuffPost - http://bit.ly/4nKhgf

The question: Is a life without parole sentence cruel and unusual punishment when applied to juvenile offenders?

The answer: Yes.

Florida has done this a lot by all reports. Just what is it with the good people of the Sunshine State? Has exposure to all that UV burned out any semblance of rational thought?

Florida put a 13 yo boy in prison and threw away the key, and now SCOTUS gets to wrangle with the question regarding cruel and unusual punishment.

Did anyone offer to slap the parents that produced a 13 year old rapist? Did anyone offer to indict the society that would set in place conditions to produce such a teen?

Surely Florida can do better than this, especially now that Jeb is out of office.
