That article is BS. Heres why:
Title: Teenagers fail to see the consequences
Quote: The subjects had to judge whether each was safe or dangerous. Both groups took longer to decide a scenario was dangerous, but this difference was greater in teenagers. Adults took 1.6 seconds longer to reach a decision while teenagers took 1.75 seconds more.
All this article proves is that Teenagers took longer to process a situation and determin wether it was dangerous or not. It does not say wether the process is right or wrong or wether they failed to understand the future consequences of their actions.
In fact it can be inferred from tha article that the teenage group performed equally in assesing how dangerous the situation was as the adults, as their was no major descrepancies between the groups other than the time taken to process the event, and certainly not a faliure to understand the consequences.
Therefore Teenagers who commit murder are guilty of two things (Being mentally slower than adults by 1'ish seconds, and of killing a person) and are fully aware of their actions consequences.
Therefore they should fry.
