There are some things I don't know. Like what it says about our species that we live in a world in which 13-year old children join gangs and kill people in cold blood. Seriously: I don't know what to make of this.
But there are some (more limited) things that I do know. Like when a 13-year old boy being interrogated by the police says "Could I have an attorney?", that's a request for counsel under Miranda.
The Court of Appeal understands that as well.
