In Re Art T. (Cal. Ct. App. - Feb. 11, 2015)

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.
