  1. Referring to the young perp as a “peer” of the victim is an odd choice of words unless the victim was also a thug, gang banger or crew member.

  2. I suppose I meant it in the “same age group” sense of Merriam-Webster’s “a person who belongs to the same age group or social group as someone else” definition.
