Have you ever had an opinion on if child soldiers should have consequences on their actions or have u ever thought that it is not all their fault? Many people say the kids should be prosecuted because they know what they were doing while others think differently. I believe that it is not the kids fault, the first reason i think this is because when kids are kids they can’t tell grown ups what they want to do. The second reason i think that they should not be prosecuted is because while they are being recruited they get drugged. The last reason i think that kids should be set off free is because when the children are fighting they can be in serious danger.
In war terrible things happen and one of those things is child soldiers. Children who are recruited and forced to be soldiers in violent conflicts are most definitely victims that deserve forgiveness and should be provided with help. Children are often forced to kill and are used in terrible ways, for example “Iran, which used boys as young as 12 to clear minefields during the Iran-Iraq war. Clearly children don’t want to kill or clear minefields risking their own lives, most of the time in poverty ridden countries parents have to sell their children to survive. Once sold they are exploited in any number of inhumane ways which children should never have to deal with, which is why child soldiers should be given amnesty and are victims.
How would you feel if you lived in a country that made you fight in a war at the age of 12 and you'll either get forgiven or send to jail? You should be sent to jail if you joined for fun and liked killing.But if you joined to protect others and to do it for a good reason then you should be forgiven. I think kids should be forgiven because maybe they were forced to, they did it for protection, and they did it so they won’t hurt them or kill them, and because they needed a shelter, food and because they were poor. One reason I think child soldiers should be forgiven is because maybe they were forced to join and kill. “Most of the kids are forced into fighting”.
I have a motto: Everything is a spectrum. I find that it is true in many cases and it helps me see things not as black and white, but as a gradient between the two. The issue of child soldiers’ prosecution is complex and doesn’t have an easy answer. Child soldiers must be assessed individually for their responsibility for their actions and their threat in the future and should be given options other than freedom or prison. Responsibility should fall on whoever knowingly, willingly, and with intent carried out or caused the crime in question.
This clearly shows that child soldiers are victims because they don’t have a choice to be a child soldier and kill people. Since they are trying to not disobey the leader so nothing bad will happen to them. I personally think that adults taking children out of their own house, taking them away from their own family members already makes them a victim. But when they are training and listening to their leader to make sure they are safe makes them an even more victim than they already
Despite the fact that some people believe child soldiers are replicas of child criminals, child soldiers should be given amnesty because they aren 't morally responsible for their actions, they are forced into fighting, and the goal should be to rehabilitate the child soldiers and not to punish. First of all, child soldiers should not be held accountable for their actions during war time. While it is well known that children make imperfect decisions all the time, there is a scientific reasoning to this phenomena. Studies show that “the section of the brain known as the frontal lobes controls decision making and only fully develops well into your 20 's. Children simply lack the ability to think of the long term consequences of their actions” (Invisible Children).
Child soldiers were victims in many ways here are they ways why child soldiers were victims. They should be granted amnesty for what they did. Here I will explain 3 reasons why child soldiers should be considered victims and should be granted amnesty. They were victims because they were drugged and had guns in their hands and they didn’t know what they were getting into but they couldn 't get out alive if they tried to escape they would be killed. They never got a childhood besides being drugged and then being in war their parents died in the video.
It will be more beneficial to society as a whole if we abolish double jeopardy, to correct the mistakes of the justice system and essential for progression. Double jeopardy is the sole reason why some criminals walk free. The justice court is fallible: ineffective representation or perjury testimony would ultimately cause a wrongful conviction. Wrongful convictions are a concern of everybody, the families of the victims or the lawyers
Tran’s subjective diction portrays her thoughts about child abuse in the U.S. with phrases such as “physical punishment in Asian traditions is not considered child abuse” and “Western culture and customs has destroyed the Vietnamese family structure very quickly.” In Asian countries, it is okay to strike your child to discipline him or her. It is a tradition and it is part of the hierarchy. Children must submit, obey, and respect their parents.In the U.S. striking your child is illegal. Asian parents now have make the decision to change their ways of discipline or go against the law and strike their child. If they change their ways, that means their culture is gone.
When the bully takes it too far, the victim snaps and retaliates by fighting him/her back physically or verbally. Not many victims does this for fear of retaliation; nonetheless some victims are brave enough to fight back. The effects of bullying will affect the victim’s future as they grow up to become adults. If this issue continues, he/she has a right to report the incident or fight back their bullies. All forms of bullying, including cyber-bullying, are considered intolerable and criminal at school.
