LGBT groups urge prosecutors to try Lawrence King's killer as a juvenile

In a joint statement, 27 LGBT activist groups, including Lambda Legal, The National Center for Lesbian Rights, GLSEN, and The Transgender Law Center, now urges the DA to try McInerney in juvenile court:

"We are saddened and outraged by the murder of junior high school student Lawrence King. At the same time, we call on prosecutors not to compound this tragedy with another wrong, we call on them to treat the suspect as a juvenile, not as an adult.

"The facts in this matter seem clear: one boy killed another in a climate of intolerance and fear about sexual orientation and gender expression. The alleged perpetrator, who turned 14 years old less than three weeks before the shooting, should be held accountable for his actions.

"But we support the principles underlying our juvenile justice system that treat children differently than adults and provide greater hope and opportunity for rehabilitation. California law does not require District Attorneys to prosecute 14 year-olds as adults, even in circumstances such as these, and we oppose them doing so.

Seems very empowering to our young adult children don't you think?

I think it is funny that Pastor Hutcherson is planning his big attention getting circus for 10:00am on 4/23. The students will be in class then. That allows him to hold court outside unchallenged and have the media witness his theatrics.

I want the students at Mt Si to know there are other "Prayer Warriors" who support the GSA and the Day of Silence that do not feel the need to circle the school and call attention to themselves. We do not need to show off and grandstand.

I think it is pathetic that he asks his "Prayer Warriors" to pray for him as he is interviewed on a radio station in another state. He is so transparent. He is trying to brag that he is being interviewed about the issue.

We should plan a protest of Antioch church services.

Stand across the street with signs that say;
