But apparently I'm a prejudiced, bigot for suggesting a 21 yr is more likely to have a period of instability or engage in violent crime, murder, assault etc than a more mature candidate say 10-20 yrs older.
No, but you are profiling, and ultimately that's a touchy prospect.

You point out that younger men are more likely to commit violent crimes as a reason not to employ younger men in those positions. Well, I would suggest that you would find that African-American are more likely to commit violent crimes per capita than Caucasian men - should we not employ Black men in those positions? Where is that line?
