Green: Death penalty for 15-year-olds

Sometimes, when you're a legislator caught up in the scramble to be tougher on crime than the guy in the next seat, you can get pretty far out on a limb.

If you give him the benefit of the doubt, that may be what happened in 1995, when Congressman Mark Green was State Rep. Mark Green and wanting to make his bones on the juvenile crime issue.

Green actually proposed the death penalty for 15-year-olds.

Surely he doesn't still think that, does he?

Perhaps some enterprising reporter will ask him.

But probably not.
