The death of Elizabeth Olten is a supposely 15 year old girl who is sister of her Elizabeth's friend. It was a premeditated murder. Since it was found in her diary. What do you think should happen to her? Tried as an adult or as an adolescent. I believe since it was premeditated she needs to be tried as an adult. At 15 years of age you know right from wrong. What are your thoughts or comments?

Of course she knew right from wrong & i think she should be tried as an adult. Things like this are happening way too much.

That is so sad. I think she should be tried as an adult. What in the world would set a young girl to do something like that? That is so sad.

I wish I knew what would process a 15 year girl to kill an innocent 9 year old . It sickens me and I just can't imagine what the family is going thru. I'm sure they knew this girl. Thank you for responding.

Dear friend, I could see that the violence has so much impact in the coming generations. May the lifestyle and the changes in society, the media all this would have make an impact on the present generation. Crimes would increase if the people become much materialist. We need an education that give importance to humanity also.

I think she should be tried as an adult, too. This is so awful! I wonder when it will all end?! It is so terrible to take anybody's life no matter what the age, reason, etc. I think if she's tried as an adult, she will see the consequences of her crime. Kathy.

Things like this just sometimes really surprize me, and it makes me wonder why someone this young could ever do something like this, and could they have really have planned it alone? But personally I think if she also wrote about it in her Diary, especially before it happened she should be found guilty of premeditated murder and charged as an adult. But yet it makes me wonder how someone this young can do something like this, and what kind of thing would make someone this young even want to do something like this as well. This is truly SAD.
