Talk:Federal crime in the United States
|WikiProject Law||(Rated Start-class, Mid-importance)|
what crimes are considered federal crimes?
what are the usual penalties for committing a federal crime?
should minors at the age of 16 years or older, be able to tried as an adult and be punished in a federal prison for committing a federal crime?
1. minors would be very susceptible to things like rape in a federal prison, even at the age of 16 or higher
2. should we be trying to give them moral guides instead to show what is right or wrong, instead of throwing them into jail.
3. is this the wrong solution?
1. would this make minors more responsible for their actions, and not want to do something like that again?
Why the globalize tag?
- It is in Germany and Austria AFAIK, and almost certainly elsewhere - an educated guess would be anywhere that is a Republic or Federation. Hohum (talk) 23:04, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
- Just as a nitpick: As a German, I have never heard of any German equivalent for "federal crime", so I don't think it's a term widely used in Germany. At any rate, in Germany almost all criminal law is federal law, so "federal crime" is usually an pleonasm. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sleske (talk • contribs) 15:35, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
