Perhaps you might think about the weight of the crime versus the punishment proposed. You suggest that they should be tried as adults, with several years of prison. What if this girl is okay (she sustained a concussion, and she might have lost hearing and/or vision)? Physically she will be fine in a relatively short amount of time. If those girls are tried as adults, they will still be in prison long after the girl has recovered. It doesn't quite seem fair if that happens. What if she fully recovers?
