LOS ANGELES – The mortality rate continues to rise as the eighth minor was sentenced to death on Friday by Excelsior Academy’s out-of-school Teen Court initiative. Teen Court is a national program that consists of teen students hailing from top-notch academies, such as Excelsior, who come together and decide fair punishment for fellow teens who have committed minor crimes.
After a controversial ruling granted Teen Court the use of capital punishment last year, members of the court have had no problems going all in. When The Peacock asked Teen Court Rep. Ryan Spencer to comment on his intense sentencing history, he responded, “This generation doesn’t understand that their actions have consequences, and I’m just trying to turn things back to 1864 when it all made a lot more sense. If there’s anything I’ve learned from Principal Lazzaro, it’s that life is a privilege, not a right.”
If The Peacock has any words of advice to our teen readers, it’s to think twice before stealing that cheap H&M bracelet because narcs like Ryan might just freakin’ Tiki-Torch your ass.
