Willie Bosket is considered by many to be New York's most dangerous inmate. His life is a constant rage, and Willie is kept in near-solitary confinement within three cells, incarcerated for a term of five years for a casual double murder on the New York City Subway at age 15. But he is serving essentially the rest of his life in prison, for a number of violent attacks on guards and staff. The story is documented in All God's Children: The Bosket Family and the American Tradition of Violence.
Willie is the reason children may be tried as adults.
