The United States is one of the only countries

in the world that allows children under 18 to

be sentenced to life without parole. Human

Rights Watch and Amnesty International report

that more than 2,000 inmates are currently serving

life without parole in the United States for crimes

committed when they were juveniles; in the rest

of the world, there are only 12 juveniles serving

the same sentence, according to figures reported

to the United Nations' Convention on the Rights

of the Child. In When Kids Get Life.
