Many child soldiers are born into poor families where they do not get any food, so they are encouraged to go fight because they get food and shelter when they fight in the army and children who are not forced to be soldiers volunteer themselves because they feel social pressure. Despite the fact that people think child soldiers should not be given, I believe that child soldiers should be given amnesty because they are forced into fighting, the commanders give them things that influence them to kill people, and they should not prosecuted and put into rehabilitation. First, child soldiers are forced into fighting for the armed forces. Most of the time they do not have a choice in whether or not they get to fight.
Some believe that kids should just walk free without any questioning. Many children are told to kill or be killed. Many children are scared for their life and only want to live. As a community we don't understand that their are so many kids that they are coming in like an endless flood. With so
Lost Innocence Contrary to popular thinking, child soldiers are not always as innocent as they seem. In fact, a large number of child soldiers escape their crimes because of the belief that they are victims when frequently they are the perpetrator in this detailed situation. In fact, Many child soldiers quickly adapt to the unhealthy lifestyle, are not held accountable, and fail to resist, yet they are dangerously and wrongfully allowed to be released into society. One main reason that child soldiers are not as innocent as they seem would be how quickly they adapt to the unhealthy lifestyle. In one article, the author describes how fast the children’s innocence is lost and how children accept the style of brutality.
People are expected to believe the government wants, no questions asked. An example of how the government uses propaganda is when Montag is wanted by the police. They use media and television to show that they have killed Montag even though he is not dead: “They’re faking. You threw them off at the river. They can’t admit it.
In the article Child Soldiers Should Be Prosecuted, it states “ In Sierra Leone child soldiers committed acts of rape, mutilation and mass killings of civilians.”(na some people will think that they should be held against their crimes but they were forced to kill by the commanders they would have not done any of these stuff if they weren’t forced to do it they were kids and believed in everything so when they got taken the commander could have told them he's their dad so they look up to him as a leader and do everything they say so they will also do it for food because they don’t get to eat if they don’t kill and go out to war. Also, it must be said that they are just little kids and they don’t know what is right from wrong in the article armed and underage, it states, “He is shouldering an automatic fully loaded rifle.”
“Most of the kids are forced into fighting”. This tell me that there were actually kids that were forced to join so they can fight. “ Their choices are minimum they are just following orders,rather than making their own choices.” This tells me that they might be afraid to make their own choices that’s why they do what they are asked to because if they don’t do what they are asked to they might get killed. “Children are forced by commanders through false promises,drugs, and things which you can’t even imagine, to kill innocent civilians, other children and even their own families.”
This could be a solution to why he had become so violent and developed even stronger hatred towards society. By having such an unbalanced life had triggered him to want to get revenge to release his pain and hurt on everyone else. I believe Allan had just wanted everyone else to feel how he was feeling. Clearly he did not have the right coping skills and support to teach him how to deal with them. He took his feelings out on other people and their families thinking it was just a way of revenge and that it was normal.
The students and staff who suffered from this horrific encounter did not want to be hunted nor did they choose too. The hunter can pick and choose whom he/she wants to hunt, yet the hunted does not get to choose whom they are being hunted by. A school shooting relates to "The Most Dangerous Game" because like Zaroff, the shooter picked what school he wanted to take advantage of, and Zaroff chose to take advantage of the ship-wreak
The sound of a weapon that snatches the life of an innocent person. The worry of a mother to knows that his son will not return home. The tears of the children when they saw how the soldiers killed other people mercilessly. It would be better if we decide to change the racial hatred for the compression, the luxuries for humility, the missiles for helping the people who live in poverty. All these terrible things we can prevent by means of a passive dialogue.
and I wouldn’t be like I am now” (367). Basically, what he is saying is that he is a cruel person for being punished for something he claims he did not do. If he truly did not commit the crime, then he shouldn’t be killing an entire family. In this story, the author puts the men as cruel persons that do not sympathize with others. The family had an accident and The Misfit choose to kill them all, instead of helping them.
Lastly, killing people has become such a trend in America that many people fear to even walk out their
The child soldiers should be given amnesty as they don’t know what they are doing is wrong, that they are being manipulated into doing things, only that they are threatened if they don’t do as they are told. When we are kids the first thing we learn is what is good, and what is bad to do. Often the child soldiers parents are dead, or the parents are the ones who sent the kids to war. And at a young age without the schooling, or someone telling them what is good, they are taught that killing the enemy is good. The younger the kid the easier it is to train, and manipulate.
They were afraid that they would lose them or never hear from them again. With this fear and the addition of the draft that caused families to be split up. The draft also made it to where the men were being forced to serve even if they did not want to. There was a loss of younger children and older family members from the war and there was a hard time trying to communicate with one another. The lack of communication added an extra burden because there was no instant response.
For the Virginian Indians, their transition differed from other Indians. The Virginians had this test where they would see whether the boys were ready to become young adults. Young men would steal children to protect from the Guard while they are brutally beat however since the children escaped they were announced ‘dead’ to the village. Not being physically dead though, the children’s blood had been spared by the Okee (devil). Thus meaning that they have been sacrificed and have now lost their childhood which resulted in them becoming men.
Have you ever mentioned the subject of child soldiers in a standard conversation? Most likely not. Child soldiers are not an everyday discussion topic, but recently they have grown more and more popular. While in the past, “children were not particularly effective as front-line fighters since most of the lethal hardware was too heavy and cumbersome for them to manipulate” (unicef.org), weapons have become lighter, and younger infantries have followed suit. While childhoods usually don’t consist of shooting people, taking villages, and other awful acts of war, they can, and this physiologically impacts a child.
