The least of them is neglect by the parents, which forces them fend for themselves and exposes them to many dangers. Another is cruel punishment given to children, making them scapegoats for the mistakes of others. Infanticide is an extreme form of child violence as in Beloved. The female child is particularly vulnerable to oppression at home. She becomes the target of incest at times culminating in rape and resulting pregnancy.

As their puzzled father ,Samuel Parris, observed the two mysterious little girls creep under chairs and spin around on the ground he pondered where this weird behavior was coming from. In Salem there were two little girls who were envious of the rich, so they made it clear that they could make people tremble in fear if they did not like you or wanted what you had. Everyone in Salem was terrified because there were so many people being accused of witchcraft. 22 people were hanged because the two little girls were pretending to be afflicted. The Salem witch trial Hysteria of 1692 was caused by two poor, young girls who claimed to be afflicted because of jealousy.
10) Charity kidnappers Workers at French charity Zoé 's Ark were imprisoned and fined for the attempted kidnap of more than 100 children - all in the name of charity. Aiming to re-home children who had become orphaned in the Darfur war, Zoé 's Ark organized for hundreds of French families to pay the charity up to $6500, in order to adopt a war torn child. However, the charity workers were arrested before their plane full of children could leave for France. Investigations discovered that the majority of the children who Zoé 's Ark had sourced were not in fact orphans, nor were they from the conflict region. They had actually been taken from their parents by the charity under false pretenses.
There, she found a farmer who helped her, and called the cops. All three men were caught, and charged. The incident started on August 8, around 10 p.m; when the girl was lured away from home by Thomas Baker, her friend’s father. Baker told the girl he needed help with his son, and being an innocent 15-year-old girl, fell into the trap. The men tortured the girl not only with rape, but attempting to drown, hang, and drug her.
The second reason why the claim holds true is because the problem of genocide causes many people to either get killed or have to reinvent their entire lives. As I recall back to my time when I past by the factory where children were doing hard labor, I was trying to think back to other times in the world where other problems involving the welfare of humans, but I realized that no matter what happens, someone will always get hurt, because someone can die, or they can drive themselves insane due to the amount of hatred they have for a place. Consequently, without having anyone know about the mental and physical effects of humanitarian problems, the problems might never be addressed, which means the past will just always repeat itself, and that alone could potentially drive someone crazy. To preclude anymore people from hurting themselves in the inside or on the outside, there should just be no more events that result in the killings of people, but because that it almost impossible, the least that could happen as a solution to this problem would be to try and make sure child laws aren’t being broken, or illegal crimes aren’t going
What do thousands of kids do when they are scared that they will be charged with war crimes if they escape from there battle? That is what child soldiers across the world, ask themselves every day. Because they do not know if they should risk their lives to get amnesty that is promised to them, just to be thrown in jail. Because there are rules that the child soldiers don't even know, so it is a gamble they have to bid their lives on.. Child soldiers deserve amnesty because they are drugged and brainwashed, they are kidnaped or forced to join, also they are killed and abused for little to no reason. On top of that almost all child soldiers are drugged, to subdue them so that they will do what they are told without hesitation.
The community received an offset of terror when three young girls, 9-year-old Elizabeth (Betty), Parris, 11-year-old Abigail Williams, and Anne Putnam began having fits, including violent contortions and uncontrollable outbursts of screaming. After a local doctor examined them he diagnosed bewitchment, and suddenly other young girls began experiencing similar symptoms. The young girls accused Tituba, a slave, along with Sarah Good, a homeless beggar, and elderly woman Sarah Osborn of bewitching them. The three accused witches were social outcasts
One of the main reasons is that conflict diamonds fuel civil wars; some rebel forces used conflict diamonds to purchase weapons and arms, in addition to facilitate some illegal activities. As well as these rebel forces make it difficult to trace the origin of the conflict diamonds once it hits the market, therefor others can no longer distinguish conflict diamonds from legitimate diamonds once they are polished. Second reason of why we should stop conflict diamond is that it lead to human suffering; The civil wars in West Africa have taken their on native people in this region, for example, as a result of war and poverty, thousands of children have been forced to live in the dangerous streets, struggling to stay alive while they are homeless, and living through the help of some organisation such as the UNICEF, foreign organisations do their best to provide food, clothing and classes for these destitute children. by 1995 the number of such children reached to 10,000 nation wide. Moreover, young girls are forced into prostitution because it brings in more money than any other job, and they were threatened by death if they tried to escape.
Gender is one dimension of social status that determines how an identical behaviour is differently labeled. The justice system reinforces patriarchal authority and therefore systems of inequality. Just Mercy brings attention to the phenomena that sees the majority of women incarcerated for nonviolent, low level drug crimes, or property crimes. Women like Marsha Colbey are put on death row after unpredictable circumstances and lack of means to access resources. In the case of Marsha, she was convicted to life imprisonment after her son was stillborn due to a miscarriage.
The most alarming aspect of the children of Rwanda was that yes, many were victims, but others were perpetrators as well. Many children were used as tools of the genocide since they were the most vulnerable, and persuasive-compared to a Rwandan adult. They participated in the genocide as members of the Rwandan army, because soldiers killed, burned and destroyed, regardless of sex, ethnic group and most importantly age. In almost all cases, children were forced into committing crimes, or joined rebel groups/the army because that was their only option if they had become an orphan as a result of other mass
Justice Fried knew that the mass hysteria of child molestation had in fact affected the case. He also admitted that the children had been asked questions in a way that elicited a certain answer, one that confirmed the biases of all the prosecutors. To make matters worse Justice Fried also knew that the children 's testimonies were unlikely and knew how the defendant 's constitutional right of confronting their accusers had been violated. In the end Justice Fried’s position in the case was predetermined, it seems as if he did not even give the Amiraults a chance to prove their innocence. I think that Justice Fried was very biased and was not impartial at all and he did not adequately do what he was supposed to do in the situation presented to
