The name of the 16-year-old girl, who is from Tokyo, is being withheld because she is a minor.

Seriously? So she can commit violent crimes (or help in some way), be a fugitive along with 3 older and horrible girls, but they're gonna treat her like a child? She made the conscious decision to go along with them to do what they were going to do.

Seriously? So she can commit violent crimes

While I don't have the inside information, I seriously doubt that the intention behind not releasing the name of a minor is not to assist them in committing violent crimes.

they're gonna treat her like a child?

Well yes, she's a child.

She made the conscious decision to go along with them to do what they were going to do.

Which is why she will be punished. Just not as an adult, since she's not.

Adolescent. Unless you are the type that considers anyone much younger than you as a child.

What will it take for an "under-aged" person to be charged as an adult? Because I've read some gruesome and muderous things people under the age of 21 have done but escape through the backdoor because "in the eyes of the law, they're seen as children!"
