lawyers for man featured in the document tree series asking a murderer, asking the supreme court to review their case. >> good luck. >> you are the most dangerous individual ever to set foot in this courtroom. >> the legal team wants the justices to review a lower court decision, the confession to helping his murder, was voluntary. lawyers argue investigators took advantage of the youth and disabilities to coerce them into falsely confessing, now serving a life sentence. a chilling new netflix series explores a very dark question. >> can social compliance be used to make someone push a living breathing human being to their death? welcome to the push. rob: the push put an
unsuspecting man in the middle of a massive hidden camera scenario. actors try to convince him he has no choice but to kill, netflix says it shows a terrifying truth that our natural instinct is to obey without question. the truman show was funny and silly. that is not. for some young voters donald trump's went over hillary clinton was too much to handle. but now one liberal college professor wants to drop the voting age to 16. is that a good idea? here to debate a political analyst with media dc ron myron democratic strategist, thank you for being here but i want to read the tweet from lawrence tribe which he writes teens between 14 to 16 have far better
bs detectors on average than adults 18 and older. wouldn't it be great if the voting age were lowered to 16? just a pipe dream i know but -- that is tough to read. sorry, the way they wrote it on the prompter. let me start with you. we all know by and large democrats are the youth, folks democratic. is this a ploy to get more in the base of the dems? >> a strong word here. this was not a serious proposal. what the professor is getting at, cities have had success lowering the voting age to 16 but really the point of this moment is young people are being mobilized and away we have never seen before and it seems to me they are the only ones with common sense in the room, people hold power that continuously watch mass shootings and refuse to do simple things like pass
background checks and then assault weapons we are seeing repeatedly in the school shootings. weather is a serious proposal are not, a sharp contrast with people who actually hold power and students mobilizing to make a difference. >> young people are definitely willing to have lots of conversations but this is an attempt that if you can't win elections you change the electorate. if you think the american people are too stupid or young people more educated or whatever he is trying to imply, have better bs detectors you try to change the electorate, they have a history of trying to do that so the question is should the voting age be 15? some people are ready to vote when they are 16. the idea is when you become a legal adult, start paying taxes, that is when the right to vote comes. that is what has made sense for many years and if you do 16, no reason you shouldn't go lower than that. the republican party, time for
youth empowerment, or elected officials under the age of 30 in the republican party than the democratic party in the last 5 years by leaps and bounds. >> we all agree, to get reaction than reality. i'm trying to put this into a realistic context. forget the politics here. do you think 16-year-old or 17-year-old has the wherewithal and time, when i was 16 or 17 i barely had enough time to get my schoolwork done much less delve into the political issues of the day. what do you say about that? >> you can make the same argument about people over the age of 18 the jews not be responsible or participate in civic engagement. what this is really about is expanding access. we should be doing more to make it easier for people of color by rolling back superstrict voter
id laws, we should empower people to same-day voter registration and have election day be a national holiday so everybody who wants to vote has no barrier to doing so. i don't think this is whether people are 16 or older. it is about making sure people who have the right to vote are not encumbered by anything standing in their way. >> the biggest difference is look who is trying to empower young people versus pandering to young people, democrats want to pander to younger voters, republicans are electing younger voters. a couple years ago only a handful of elected officials under 30 in the entire country, now there's a handful in every state. age 28, i'm not even the youngest elected official in my own county much less the commonwealth of virginia so we are seeing the republican party saying we need younger voices at the table and the democrats are electing younger people so that is the voice of the future.
