Kansas Charley : The Boy Murderer
Most Americans regard ?kids who kill? as a bane of modern society, but the tragic tale of ?Kansas Charley? reminds us that it is a long-standing issue. Charles Miller was a fifteen- year-old killer who was hanged in 1892 for the murders of two young men. Kansas Charley vividly brings to life a thought-provoking chapter in American history and in the history of the juvenile justice system, shedding light on our contemporary predicament and encouraging us to think about what it means to continue to uphold the juvenile death penalty in the twenty-first century.
