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.
Many adults are left with ptsd, but what about kids, if these experiences can leave adults debilitated, what about the children. Children’s brains aren’t fully developed, so it can become much worse, which is why child soldiers should be given help instead being prosecuted. “More than half of the country’s health facilities are out of service, water facilities have been destroyed and more than 15 million children are in need of water and sanitation facilities.” In desperate times people may do desperate things, as long as the survive, people will do anything; same goes for children. Another example of requiring aid involves a child soldier, Omar Khadr, held at Guantanamo Bay.
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.
Child soldiers join the military and are valuable assets, as their minds can be easily intimidated. Child soldiers can be as young as eight, and they serve in government forces. They fight in the front lines, participate in suicide missions, and can act as spies, messengers, or lookouts. Although some believe that child soldiers shouldn’t be given amnesty, they should because of their age, what they have endured in the past, and their mental effects.

Readers can imply that being repeatedly beaten and tortured at a very young age makes the child live in fear and agony. Also, certain incidents such as being taken away from your parents at such a young age can leave behind pain, sorrow, and will definitely affect the child’s life in the future. “Indian Horse” successfully proves to readers that abuse can mentally destroy a person’s future and leave behind brutal memories, which will never be
A problem that is constantly brought into the limelight is violence. Violence has been a problem that society has struggled with since the beginning of time, and it is a problem that we still struggle with today. Child abuse Child abuse is lawfully defined as,”Any recent act or failure to act on the part of a parent caretaker which results in death, serious physical or emotional harm”(Website 5, bullet 1). Repeatedly throughout the story, “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn”, we see our main protagonist beaten by his father. ”But by-and-by Pap got too handy with his hick’ry, and I couldn’t stand it.
They’d all just rot in Hazarjot where they belong,” (Hosseini 41). Assef, a Pashtun repeatedly encourages Amir to refrain from befriending and supporting Hassan, a Hazara. While Amir is aware of the social differences between himself and Hassan, he had never been in support of the “‘Ethnic cleansing,’ Assef murmured, tasting the words,” (Hosseini 244) that other members of his ethnic identity had supported. At this time, the minority of the Hazaras were persecuted and targeted for their ethnicity. This inequality standard represented the struggle Amir faced throughout the novel.
Victor decides to rebel with the creatures demands and sacrifice his own well-being, because he realizes that the danger to the world is much bigger than the danger to himself. In present day, people do the unthinkable when they do not get what they prefer, so they then seek revenge. Throughout high school, many scenarios between couples proved the power of revenge between love. A handful of teenagers in today’s society come to one similar conclusion when they realize they have been betrayed. Getting back at a loved one, just so they can feel the hurt that they made them go through is often a primary choice of many illiterate adolescents.

As Ender gets pushed around, he hits a hard blow and gives no mercy to the boy if he ever wanted it to end. Surprisingly, the people in commands recognize his unfound talents and decided to train him in a school every boy would want to attend.
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.
Should Child Soldiers be prosecuted? Picture this, your family is killed by terrorists and you have nowhere else to go. A gun is forcibly attached to your hand, and you as a 9 year old is given a duty to kill as much people on the streets as you possibly can. This is horrific. Child soldiers soldiers shouldn't be prosecuted without a doubt.
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.
