Because they are able to commit a crime like murder, they are considered very dangerous. Not to mention that they should be given an adult charge because otherwise they will get out of jail and do it again. By giving them an adult charge they can learn not to do any crime, and that crime is not okay because you will not get off easy. Juveniles shouldn't get off easy for doing something such as murder because they took someone's life. It also wouldn't be fair to the family that lost someone if they didn't get an adult sentence.

Advocates often repeat, but truly misunderstand brain research on this issue”(Jenkins). This matters because the teens need to act in a maturely matter if they don’t want to end up in jail for the rest of their lives. This means that the teens are being convicted as if they were adults because they are committing serious crimes. That being said, that is not good for the country because the death rate and the juvenile rate keeps on increasing which is costing many lives of innocent people.

Juveniles are aware of their wrongdoings and they choose to commit foul play on innocent lives.

Furthermore, if teen killers are tried as adults, they should also be given the opportunity of liberation once they turn of age.
