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.

When people commit crimes, there should be disciplined no matter what. Juveniles need to learn that their behaviors have consequences. Why should kids be given any less of a punishment for committing the same crime? According to one author, “Taking a life is murder regardless of the age of the offender, and the penalties to be imposed must not discriminate. After all, the victim’s life will never be returned, and the family will permanently lose their loved one” (“7 Top Pros and Cons of Juveniles Being Tried As Adults”).

Even the innocent get sentenced major years for crimes they didn’t even commit. Lately sentencing has been crazy, so at this point in time sentence reforming is relevant in this case. To begin with, sentence reforming needs to take place because people are getting way to many years for petty crimes they didn't commit.

From the early days after Davis snatched Polly from a Petaluma slumber party, Klaas has been a highly visible advocate for strong laws to protect the public, especially children, from career criminals and predators like Davis. He had come to the San Francisco Chronicle with other opponents of Proposition 34, the ballot measure that would end California 's death penalty and resentence California 's 700-plus death row inmates to life without parole.

Also on that same article it say “ Nathaniel Brazil , now is fourteen, charged as an adult with first-degree murder. He returned to Lake Worth, Fla middle school and shot to death and English teach, who would not let him say good-bye to two girls on the final day of class.” This quote explains on how Brazil stately killed his teacher because of how he felt he let his inner feelings control and that is mostly how some teens commit crimes. Although, some facts backs up on why juveniles should go to jail my claim is true enough more important that they shouldn’t because it states how kids are kids they see things and learn from it.
Mike LoRicco English F In Criminal minds season 10 episode 22 Protection Daniel "Danny" Lee Stokes is a schizophrenic serial-turned-spree killer and vigilante who appeared in Protection.

Additionally, the fact stated “If juvenile
Ironically enough, Kinder eggs were banned because they are a choking hazard to children, but the gun that killed 20 children and six teachers at the sandy hook shooting in 2012 is still very legal for “protection”. I guess it 's also a plus that our government doesn’t kill people! Canada officially abolished the death penalty in 1976, but no Canadian inmate has been executed since 1962. By contrast, the U.S. put 23 prisoners to death so far this year, and has 3,002 prisoners waiting on the death row (death penalty info). Clearly America has a problem; they punish killers by killing them, I mean technically executors are also killers so shouldn’t they be killed to?
