This is why child soldiers should not be granted amnesty. First and foremost, child soldiers are killers. They are trained for anything. They can kill in an instant and are a danger to society. Innocent people don’t deserve to die at the hands of murderers.
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.”
This evidence from Armed & Underage explains how so many of these child soldiers didn’t have any choice. They’re forced to fight, forced to kill, and many are forced to die. Why should we punish those who never had a choice? Furthermore, child soldiers should not be held morally responsible for their
Together with his followers they tortured the young woman and assaulted her with stones before Drew broke her neck with his bare hands and decapitated her. The violence continued even after this, Drew did things to her headless corpse that are too disturbing to chronicle here but whatever you’re thinking I assure you, it was far worse. In 1981 he was given a life sentence without the possibility of parole. 5
Gacy was so scared about what his father would do he chose to keep quiet. John Wayne Gacy was guilty of killing 33 people mostly teenage boys and burying them under his house. He got most of his victims by dressing up as pogo the clown. In conclusion I fully believe that that abuse and bullying have a lot to do with how a person reacts.
Waiting years to see your family again just to see them killed is truly depressing. When Ishmael started to train as a boy soldier, he soon became determined to avenge his family. This is shown when the lieutenant was brainwashing Ishmael, telling them to kill the one that killed their family. Everyone then “got angry and drove [their] knives in and out of the banana trees” (Beah, 112). Ishmael became so bloodthirsty afterwards, and justified it as avenging is family.
Thus, numerous refugees experienced and are experiencing similar losses because it does not matter why or how they became refugees; they all experience the universal refugee experience. These shows how there are always wars that made refugees who they are. All refugees go through painful changes to turn “inside out” but most managed to get their lives “back again” as they settles in their new homes. Anne, Ha,
In Death Without Weeping, the author Nancy Scheper-Hughes explains the everyday life of sickness, and death of children in shantytown called the Alto de Cruzeiro. She continues on to explain how most newborn babies are left alone to die without any care. In our culture that is extremely looked down upon and most people stop and think, how could you do something so horrible to an innocent newborn baby. Again, this article is a prime example how cultures differ in so many ways possible that most of us don’t even realize.
They had very good intentions but unrealistic expectations, most of the kids were placed into bad homes and had to go to multiple new homes until they found on that was good for them. Three kids in particular, had many not so good events and homes before they choose a family that was right for them. When you think of “not so good events” little things come to mind like your dog dying, losing a friends because of drama, or getting grounded. These things are nothing compared to the things that happen to Molly in the
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.
Therefore, making it evident of the before and after of the war, no one at that age would be disrespected before the war, which made the effects of the social norms evident. They are continuously reminded of the rebels that killed their families and that they are inhumane. The theme of the horror of war is prevalent throughout the novel as Ishmael and the other boys face
Sylvia had playmates that she often played dolls with. One day, one of the girls she played with and was very close to disappeared. Nobody knew what happened to her or where she went, but they were sure the soldiers had something to do with it. The soldiers just kept shoving more and more thousands of jews in this harsh community. People often died of starvation, or freezing to death in their apartments, because they didn’t have heat.
Many young children under aged have been taken in by the government. They are being held captive tell they are drugged enough and brainwashed to go out and kill or to be killed. They are forced to train to kill under the influence of drugs and they are hardly aware of what they or doing. Child soldiers should be given amnesty because of the absents of their minds and them not being able to process what they are doing. These children are often seen as targets because they are under aged and not able to take responsibility for their actions so they are targeted to be able to kill without punishment.
Child Soldiers Deserve to be granted with amnesty as long as they don’t act violent. These underaged soliders are forced to act violent. They are also drugged, leaving them no choice but to do what they are told. On the other hand, many argue that they shouldn’t be given amnesty. They say the child solider do have a choice between saving themselves or others, but in kids are too young to expect themselves to save others instead of themselves.
