If an adult or elderly must use a diaper because of a condition that they have then it does not consider them a child therefore, a child that commits a violent crime does not consider them an adult. When children realize the violent crimes that have been committed by them it makes the adolescent feel guilty and horrid for what has been done. In some cases, the adolescents are curious and sometimes do not know what wrong has been committed. There should be a punishment for the violent act, but having the child tried as an adult is not the solution; that is why juvenile facilities exist around the world. Children that are tried as an adult and receive a guilty sentence will put the adolescent at risk, the child will not have a punishment limit, and the hopes of the child will be corrupted.
Next, it wouldn’t be right to let a juvenile’s go to jail where grown men sexually abuse other men it’s just harsh. Overall, I think juveniles should not be convicted as an adult because their children not an adults even if they made an adult decision. A child is a child at the end of the day and you should forgive but it will never be forgotten.
Juveniles Justice Juveniles who are criminals being sentenced to life without parole can be shocking to some people. I believe if a juvenile is able to commit a crime, then they are able to do the time. The article “Startling finds on Teenage Brains” talks about how the brain can be different from the time you are teens to the time you are an adult. After, considering both sides on juvenile justice it is clear that juveniles should face life without parole because they did the crime so they can do the time. Also I believe the juvenile’s age should not influence the sentence and the punishment give.
In this essay, I will be arguing that juveniles should be tried as adults in cases like murder. I believe juveniles should be tried as an adult because as human beings, we are in a state of mind, even if we are not fully developed, the victim's family will be in total grief and if they aren’t tried as an adult they will not understand the full consequence and will perform more crime and if they are tried as an adult will better themselves in prison. Juveniles should be tried as an adult because they are in a state of mind, meaning they know right from wrong even if they’re not fully developed age wise. Thompson states, “Even though normal teens are experiencing a wildfire of tissue loss in their brain, that does not remove the accountability”.
Those under the age of eighteen do not have the legal rights given to adults; since we do not treat them as adults, it does not make sense to sentence them as such. Biological studies also have found that teenagers make impetuous decisions and cause trouble because their underdeveloped brains lack the ability to look at future repercussions for their actions. Moreover, teenagers are still at an age that they are easily influenced by their environment. They succumb to peer pressure which can push them into doing crimes by the virtue of wanting to be accepted. Furthermore, they should be placed into the juvenile justice system, a safe environment in which allows young criminals to learn from the mistakes they make, rather than into adult jails, a place in which harden criminals could physically and mentally harm them.
“It is unlikely that prosecutions after the fact would have this effect. Prosecutions only happen after the war has ended so those who recruit child soldiers will not take this into consideration. Moreover, they are already breaking the law by using child soldiers so they are unlikely to stop using child soldier just because the child faces a risk of prosecution.” These pieces of evidence are from Child Soldiers, Prosecution. The first evidence makes a valid point, the second piece of evidence explains why that is a mistaken argument.
Juveniles should not be tried and condemned as adults because they do not have the capacity to perceive what is good and bad. There has been a lot of controversy towards the subject of juveniles in the Court Justice System because many feel that juveniles are to young to be entangled with the law. People need to consider the possibilities of what the Juvenile Justice system can do to help and rehabilitate these delinquents instead of sending them off to an adult court to be tried as an adult, even though they are minors. When Juveniles are tried as adults, people do not know what type of person is being sent to jail and what type of person they are going to release into society later on. In the end Juveniles should not be charged as adults.
Children are not Adults The controversial issue of juvenile crime is a frequently intangible topic. Naturally, most people find the idea of a young child committing a severe crime very appalling, as no one expects a wide-eyed child to engage in such a heinous act of misconduct. In the essay “Adult Crime, Adult +30Time”, Linda J. Collier affirms that children who engage in adult conduct should undoubtedly be sent to an adult prison (Collier 608). Clearly, a child should be penalized for a corrupt act such as murder, but, Ms. Collier’s solution is considerably harsh for a child of such a young age. In the order of criminal justice, a young child should certainly not be disciplined in the same manner as an adult.
A child doesn’t have the same standards as an adult has. A good example is children don’t get to join the military as an adult could they must be 18 years and older to join the military. Teenagers don’t make the same decisions as an adult would. “With appropriate treatment most children who commit crimes, even the most violent crimes, can be rehabilitated and become responsible adults. ”(Berger)
Should Juveniles be tried as adults just because they commit a crime? It depends what type of crime it is and what age is the juvenile. If juveniles are sentenced as adults they have to check on how bad the crime was and also what age they 're Ages 5-10 shouldnt be tried as adults because they dont know what they are doing. In another hand, kids ages 11 and up should already know whats good and bad, so that mean that they should be tried as adults, but it depends on how bad was the crime that they did.
How do that sound? A kid being charged as an adult for a crime, he was more and likely manipulated to do. Kids don’t just act out in such behaviors for no reason. Something’s either wrong, lack self control due to functions of the brain or influenced by our adults and were trying to send them away, instead of getting them help; he is just sentenced to life.
When should juvenile offenders be tried as an adult This is important topic because juvenile that commit bad crimes such as rape, murders and robbery should be tried Juvenile offenders should be tried as an adult at the age of 14 teen years old. A child at 14 is old enough to know right from wrong, and if they commit a crime at the age of 14 then they should go thought a adult court and be tried as an adult .If you're a juvenile and you committed a serious enough crime you can be can be tried charged as an adult ."if
Currently, in America, there is a debate about whether or not juveniles should be tried as adults. When it comes to trying teens in court as adults. Some say stop trying them as adults and try them as juveniles, others say they must be tried as adults when they commit adult crimes. I believe that teens should be held accountable for their actions and tried as adults. If minors who commit violent crimes were tried as adults and punished the same way as adults are, the number of violent crimes committed by the youths of our generation would decline dramatically.
Throughout the year, over 10,000 children in the United States are placed in adult prisons and jails. Children of any age depending of the circumstances can be placed in adult prisons surrounded with offenders who have done some heinous crimes. This can be a problem because the adults can delude the children between what is right and wrong. Juveniles should not be placed in an adult penitentiary due to the lack of morals being taught to them, the harmful effects that can occur to them mentally and physically, and the lack of education they will receive while being placed in a penitentiary. A juvenile offender's age could vary widely throughout the United States their are about half of the states have no minimum age requirement for a person to be tried as an adult.
