    Awe another case of zero tolerance where common sense and understanding are forfeited for a sense of power and condemnation. Forvthose cases where actual harm is intended, then prosecute the juvenile in keeping with juvenile offenders. No use in ruiining a life for imature boneheaded decisions of youth. If these prosecutory standards existed 20+ years ago, prisons would be full of people who ate a gun shape out of a sandwich or pointed their finger at someone and said pow. Stop the hysteria.
