Many Americans argue that teens should be tried as adults for the violent crimes they commit. Teenage murder rates have been increasing over time. Yes, there are people that think these teens shouldn't be tried as adults because of how young they are. However, I disagree, these criminals that get released are mainly the juveniles who committed adult crimes. I believe that teens should be tried as adults for many reasons.
Teens Tried as Adults Teens are the future of our society. They are the ones who will soon run the world we live in today. People make mistakes and no one is perfect. From these mistakes people learn, however some do not. Most of the time when a teen makes a bad choice something gets broken, they screw up in class or hurt someone's feelings.
Why should teen felons get to spend their jail time in juvenile detention centers for committing the same crimes as adults? In today’s world, teens are increasingly committing violent crimes and being put in juvenile detention centers. Teens need to be tried as adults because it helps to bring justice to families of victims, and it also teaches the teens accountability. Charging teens as adults will also help reduce crime in the United States. Although many people feel that teens should not be given severe punishments because they are immature and innocent, they have not considered the problem teens are creating by committing these crimes..
Juvenile Offenders Are Not Innocent Children A teenager kills his parents, another even younger boy kills his teacher by bringing a gun to school and fatally shooting him. Do these juveniles deserve a second chance? The simplest answer is, no. There are juvenile offenders that have rehabilitated and maybe do deserve parole.
Juveniles should be charged as adults in murder cases. First of all, the juveniles know exactly what they're doing in a situation like that. The second reason is, because they are able to commit a crime like murder, they are considered very dangerous. A third reason is, most of the time teenagers who commit crimes such as murder get a shorter time in jail just because of their age. Juveniles should be charged as adults in murders cases.
We see how juveniles are a big part in law enforcement today. How they are treated differently than adults who are in prison. We looked at why troubled youths commit crimes and end up in juvenile detention centers. How we aid them and try to rehabilitate them in the process. People 's views play a big role in juvenile justice though, a lot of people are for juveniles being tried as adults.
At Least 65% percent of 18 year olds don 't have jobs nor go to school. However, at age 18 you are supposed to be considered an “Adult” but are are you really mature or responsible? In my opinion we should not be considered an adult at 18 because, many people still have their parents buy them clothes, shoes, ect and they don 't do anything with their lives but go out and do drugs, Instead of going out and look for a job. Furthermore, we should be considered an adult when we can pay our own bills maintain a job and be independent.
In this society, it is known that if one commits, there are consequences we have to pay. Adults are known to commit crimes like burglary and murder. For our society, it is normal to see in the news that an adult commits murder and as adults they know that there are consequences. However, when a minor commits a murder, the whole country, and maybe the whole world, turns the minor that committed the crime. Who would believe that a innocent looking minor would commit such a crime?
When juveniles commit serious crimes they often only receive a minor slap on the wrist, possibly probation. These juveniles then continue to commit worse crimes as well as damage countless lives until they are put away for life as adults. The juvenile system is a place for minors who commit crimes, it has less harsh punishments and is easy going. In this system, there is a multitude of programs for minors to receive help, such as rehabilitation, psychiatric hospitals, in addition to counseling. Minors who have gone through this system come through multiple times due to the fact that they do not learn their lesson or receive the help they need.
In my opinion the film is biased, but I do agree with the fact that the kid prison system is corrupt. I disagree with the fact that at the age of 16 or 17 you can be tried as an adult in adult court, there is a reason that they have a kids court. On the other hand, I disagree with the film and the fact that there was so much talk about racial discrimination. There are over 54,000 kids in jail, and most of those 54,000 kids are not even in there for a crime. Skipping school, missing curfew, not obeying guardians rules, sneaking out, etc. are all reasons that kids are sent to jail.
What are juvenile delinquents? Juvenile delinquents are basically teen criminals. In other words, they are young kids that commit crimes that defers from the normal criminal justice system. These young delinquents have different punishments then adults do in the criminal justice system. the criminal justice system is different from children than adults mainly to prevent juveniles from committing more of deviance and to give them a chance to turn their life around.
