Yes, everyone feels bad that a thirteen year old is going to prison, but do they feel bad that the victims’ parents will no longer be able to see their son or daughter again? The families that are emotionally hurt have to live with the sorrow forever throughout their life, whereas a criminal is still given the choice to live, even if it is in a prison.The criminal’s parents are still allowed to visit as well. So why feel bad for the young criminal but forget about the victim and his or her family? Without justice, the world would be chaotic. If a criminal is given the chance change, how will one be completely sure if they did change or not?
Also I believe the juvenile’s age should not influence the sentence and the punishment give. At the same time their family and home environment should not be considered. Juveniles who commit a crime should not be given parole because they
In the article it states, “The court said that minors who commit terrible crimes are less responsible than adults: They are less mature, more susceptible to peer pressure, and their personalities are not yet fully formed.” In this quote the author is reasoning against life without parole because they are less mature and not fully developed. Although all crimes deserve proper punishment, juveniles should not receive life without parole because they are still developing and this punishment leaves no room for a second chance
Their lack of a bond could very well be the reason why Virgil doesn’t go to school, as latchkey kids are often psychologically affected in that they are more likely to create their own rules as no one is making them for him (Huff, Ken. "The Lonely Life”). If this is true, then it shows how the destruction of their culture has created a disinterest in one important activity such as school. He also lacks a bond with his mother and the rest of his family as he doesn’t get to spend time with them because they are not placing an importance on unity like most First Nation cultures do. This is further proven when Virgil’s uncle Wayne says, “Maybe it was the son of her’s what’s-his-name… Vinnie… Virgin…Virgil” (Taylor 34.)
Junice, who lives in poverty and has nobody on her side to guide her through making the right choices for the future because he mom is in prison. Juliet and Junice both are deeply in love with the man of their dreams, but to be able to be with the man of their dream
The younger generation officials simply look over her not paying taxes for years. They never did more than send a request for her to pay. Anyone else with a lower social status who would have committed this serious offence would have simply been made to pay or been sent to jail. Since the late Colonel Sartoris made the lie and Miss. Emily Grierson continues with it they will not dare accuse them.
In a murder case, there even remains a possibility of even a death sentence, whether or not the victim’s family/friends decide to be for or against it. If no death penalty presents, the villain attains mental health services the entire time they occupy prison. On the contrary, instead of mandatory mental health services, they become optional. Most of the time, the defendant will choose not to take these services, which results in conflict. The defendant never gets treatment.
All the things he did was a cry for help but nobody knew how to deal with him and how to help him. If someone had checked in on Nicklas Cruz then he would not commit the violent act that he did committed. All mentally ill people that have caused mass shootings do this because they did not have someone looking after them. There parents were not looking after them and neither was their friends. There should be programs that monitor and provide help to the mentally ill people so that they do not become violent
Juveniles convicted to life without parole aren't given a chance to change with rehabilitation that why it's necessary to help them so that they are able to change. In the article, "Juveniles Don't Secure Life Sentences" by Gail Garinger, explains that juveniles in the United States die in prison without even getting the help that could possibly help them change and become better people once sentenced to life in jail forever without any hope. Garinger writes, " these children were told that they could never change and that no one cared what comes of them. Denied access to education and rehabilitation programs and left without help or hope"(Par. 3, Garinger).
The life of another person truly does not matter to these people. They care more about having a “Safety net” to fix their own irresponsible acts. They have the choice to have unprotected sexual intercourse. The child did not make that choice for them, so they should not be allowed to make the choice of taking the child 's life away. By making the argument “My body, my choice”, you are implying that the fetus, is not a person, and does not have a body of their own.
