Danielle Jackson Carlton - 5 English 11 1 March 2018 The Broken System we call Foster Care Yes foster care is an essential system used to provide loving homes to children, but unfortunately these systems have become broken and can no longer keep kids safe under their care. Everyday children are being placed in foster homes facing abuse, unloving parents, and even death. The system has only progressively gotten worse leaving behind children traumatized to a point where no amount of love or therapy can fix them. To inaugurate, the biggest issue with foster care is the inadequate placement of children in the system. Children are placed into homes based on cases of availability and not what their unique needs call for.
Also having no recess will make middle schoolers feel even worse. To explain more middle schoolers friendships can be hurt because they can 't talk. One example of that is when I was in 5th grade one of my best friends and I got to talk a lot during recess but when they took that away in middle school I could not talk to him that much
During this stage, children start to interact more with peers in school. Through interacting with other kids, children will not only practice their social ability but gain a sense of initiative through planning things themselves as well, thus to feel confident in their ability and decision-making. It is important for children to explore and plan activities by themselves to achieve the feeling of control, yet Genie was not able to decide or try anything in her early childhood. On the contract, she got beaten by her father whatever she did. Therefore, combining the autism and the lack of confidence she expressed after the rescue, we can assume after the fails of the previous development, Genie was apparently not an initiative child.
One of the disadvantages would be the risk ran if a student got hold of a gun that a teacher was supposed to have in a secured spot or location. According to www.debate.org, they say, “ if the teachers keep it somewhere easily accessible, a student could take it and shoot up the school.” This is very true, sometimes kids aren’t as dependable or trustworthy as adults think they are. It only takes one unstable kid to kill tens of hundreds of his/her classmates. Also, according to www.debate.org, they said, “What if children are too scared to go to school, because of guns?” Well, there's no telling how students will truly react to guns at school, until it is tried. But, this point is true.
Earlier this month, a “sexting ring” at Canon City High School in Colorado was uncovered by school authorities. Involved were minors and legal adults, who had scandalist pictures and images of naked minors. This has brought upon the question of, “How do you prosecute and punish those involved in these acts?” Those responsible for these acts must take the punishment which they are served when the time comes. The judge is gathering the information and having the ones involved questioned. He is debating between the prosecution of sex offender or just a misdemeanor.
A 12-year-old boy and his 10-year-old sister were sentenced to 40 years in an adult high-security prison, for convicting a murder. To someone who doesn’t look at the age of these kids 18 years does not even seem long enough for murdering someone, but when you think about a child who just started middle school and is going to be in a jail with older criminals who have been committing crimes there whole life they are put in a traumatizing event that will have high consequences in the future. Like many children, these kids have problems with themselves or in their life that they couldn’t get help. While committing the crime the kids probably didn’t even realize what they were doing or what the consequences could be. These kids like are other kids who are put into high-security prison have no chance of fixing their life once they get out and are 45 times more likely to become super predators and commit worse crimes in the future.
Juveniles should be charged as adult not only because of their age but because of the crime they committed. According to all cases of teen killing there is 1,300 that has been sentenced as an adult to life. Is not right to put a child behind bars because they're brain is not fully developed so they're not mature, but a crime is a crime. At the young age of 12, 13, 14 even younger kids most of them are expected to know what they want to commit themselves to to make a living. If kids are given that much responsibility and such a young age, then why can't they comprehend the consequences of violent crimes such as armed robbery and murder?
Is that good enough.” published on July 19,2012 Scott Anderson explores the story of 19 year old Greg Ousley, who killed his parents and is now reminiscing on the events and is now telling his side of the story. Scott Anderson mentions that, “ his is or was a teenage boy who planned and carried out a crime so unthinkable that to most people it is not just a moral transgression, but almost a biological one.” (14) This comes to show that some teenager already have the capability to bring out a horrendous crime and should therefore be punished with the sentence they
Why gun control laws don’t work How do you feel Knowing your kids are not safe at school or if you are a student how do you feel that you know you are not safe at school. According to Aaron Bandler ”The Crime Research Prevention Center determined that since 1950, nearly 99 percent of mass public shootings have occurred in gun-free zones. The terror attack in Orlando, FL and the shooting that murdered singer Christina Grimmie in June also took place in gun free zones. The reason is obvious: deranged murderers want to be in a position to murder as many as possible, so they target areas where they 're least likely to find armed resistance, which happen to be gun-free zones”. This shows that gun free zones are targeted the most like schools which shows that gun laws don’t work because of the amount of mass shootings in these restricted zones.
In an age where juvenile crime has escalated from simple truancy to more serious crimes such as mass school shootings some would agree it is time to abolish juvenile courts or modify the system at the very least. Because of the seriousness of juvenile crime in this day and age, most states have already lowered the age limit for juvenile court jurisdiction from 17 years and are prosecuting more children as adults depending of the seriousness of the crime. Some criminal justice and child welfare scholars argue that younger children do not have the mental capability or experience to weigh the consequence of committing a crime and much less understand the implications of a criminal record in their future. Furthermore, they note that most juveniles grow out of criminal behavior as they mature out of the system and in
