thanks, Melanie

I also read the comment about changing the policy on 16 year olds, and was quite concerned. tha Fagan believes she can change that from the DA's office and is using that as part of a platform for her campaign should give everyone great pause. it means she either doesn't understand to juvenile law system, how laws are changed, or she has an ambition that goes beyond serving the people up north eastern North Carolina as the district attorney

HUH?

"She also wants to change the policy in the District Attorney’s Office of trying 16-year-olds as adults." That is not a policy; it is a presumption written into the law by the Legislature. If Ms. Fagan would like to change that presumption, it'd suggest she run for an office other than District Attorney. It's not the DA's job to overcome that presumption; that is up to the defense.
