Keep in mind, these are just the crimes that got them convicted. It’s hard to believe that if we want zero tolerance, all non-violent offenders should serve time in prison, as well as complete community services. All drug offenders should be held accountable for the crimes committed. Secondly, it sets a harmfully negative example for kids when the drug offender get off easy and are not punished. We open the door to potentially violent drug crimes due to people who are high on drugs who use poor judgement, and could easily hurt someone or possibly injure or harm themselves.
Nobody is supposed to be exempt from this, so what should be done when one breaks this rules? Specifically, when this is done by a teenager. Should they get harshly punished, or do they deserve a second chance? Juveniles who commit crimes should not be given life sentences. Teenagers do not deserve to get life sentences because their brains are not fully developed yet.
If you change the word to monitor, parenting, or oversight it’s still spying. In line 8, Amanda Rodriguez changes the word and it still sounds as bad. In lines 35-36 they say “change the word spy to monitor with a child’s knowledge and you get more agreement on the part of parents that its an entirely appropriate thing to do so” just that alone is bad because it’s just changing the format and you agree. In this story a lot of parents just switch the name so they don’t feel as bad, for example Harley LeBon says “I would refer to call it oversight” Last, children should be treated as children and young adults as young adults. The examples seem that parents don’t treat children as kids.
So we need to enforce ways of keeping all the sex offenders known after the first offense. And we need stronger measures to keep them away from the public. I believe that the punishment for sex offenders should be far more severe, than they are
“ A child’s mental abilities are not fully developed. He should not be punished in the same way as an adult.” Do you support juveniles getting convicted as an adult ? They are just kids and shouldn’t be in a place where it is dangerous and can scare a child life up for good. Kids mimick off of things they see in their life and the parents should be responsible for their behavior. In the article “ Kids Are Kids” by Marjie Lundstrom says “A child was mimicking Tv programs about a little girls who rob a bank was given a 26-years-to-life prison terms.” This quote states how this child was watching something inappropriate changes a child’s mind and thinks it’s ok to do whatever they saw which makes them commit these
Many people think kids that commit massive crimes deserve to be put in a adult jail house but don’t realize that they are young immature human beings. There has been many cases of kids being tried as adults and being sentence to life in prison. We can’t continue to put these young kids in adult prison, they should be put in juvenile hails where they belong. Kids are being shown no mercy when it comes to being put in jails. Kids aren’t allowed to do certain things because you need to be an adult, so the same rules should be applied we it comes to give children jail time.
However, the dissenting side believe that keeping the there should be a life in prison punishment for juvenile who commit heinous crime regardless of their age. I agree that abolishing the mandatory part but not abolishing the whole Juvenile Life Without
In the order of criminal justice, a young child should certainly not be disciplined in the same manner as an adult. The immaturity of children, harshness of adult prisons, and the ability of juvenile prisons to efficiently rehabilitate child offenders are a few reasons why young children should not be sent to adult prisons.
Juveniles should be convicted as adults for violent crimes because it is not fair for juveniles to commit big crimes and get away with it so easily. If they want to act like adults, they should be treated. Some teens commit crimes and don't have a really good excuse on why they do it. In the article “On Punishment and Teen Killers” by Jennifer Jenkins she explains how the teenager that killed her sister, husband and her unborn child excuse of killing them was that he just wanted to “see what it would feel like to shoot someone”, which is no good excuse for what he did to this family. Another example from Jennifer's Jenkins article she states how “undeveloped brain” has nothing to do with teens committing these crimes.
