    I'm thinking "Children who Kill".

    It's already been a lecture during this years module, but I'd like to expand on it and bring in more theories and information about it.

    I guess I will give a handful of examples but really focus on one or two (preferably one).

    Anyone got some ideas of points to make?

    Are you going to focus on one famous example (e.g. the James Bulger case/Mary Bell)?
    What would you define as a child? Prepubescent? Or throughout their teens (in which case, the Columbie School Massacre would be quite the example).
    Ideas I'd bring in would mainly be about things like what could drive these kids to do such things; so the social, biological, and environmental factors underlying their actions. But this sort of idea has been run to the ground enough times.
    What did you learn in your module about this topic?

    What could have prevented them from committing such a despicable act or you could do an essay on cricket on the village green?

    (An obvious aspect to examine is the debate around suitable punishment for minors who commit murder. This links into a bunch of fun legal/ethical quandaries, such as the role of age in responsibility for actions, accountability of parents, justice vs mercy, the aim of a jail sentence as rehabilitation or punishment etc. Though maybe that's a bit too off-topic.)

    Thanks.

    I'm including everyone under the age of 18, so indeed to Columbine attack. I already did another seperate presentation on it but focusing on video games, so it shouldn't be too hard!

    I'm going to run through the module presentation a few times... write down the ideas they've put and attempt to avoid them to an extent. I really want to make this feel like a new presentation.
