They are unaware of their actions, they were manipulated by rebel groups to kill. The child soldiers deserve amnesty, rehabilitation, not to be locked away. Being incarcerated could cause them to become even more dangerous than they already are. Child soldiers need help and attention instead of being forced behind bars and forgotten.
Many people think that these games will not have a major impact in a student or teens life that teens will be more prepared to face the real world an all its dangerous. But I say that yes these games might teach kids that the real world isn 't always that safe but I believe that these games show kids to be violent and reckless. To conclude this is why many parents and government officials believe that kids should not be allowed to play violent role playing games.By not letting kids play these games we can prevent more horrible and tragic shooting involving
It’s been well documented that these children have used guns and war tactics, and committed various illegal and illicit acts of violence. However, what they’ve done doesn 't come with the fact that child soldiers live with rugged conditions, drugs, the influence of others. Even though some people believe that child soldier’s shouldn’t be given amnesty, overall, it becomes clear that these children should be given amnesty because many adults influence their actions, they live in inferior conditions, and children who enlist as child soldiers enlist for multiple reasons other than violence. First, in many areas, it can be clearly seen that child soldiers are influenced by their superiors. No one is ever born dangerous, it’s always their parents and environment that shape a child into who they are.
A piece of evidence that reinforces my point is that if you give these children no chance to change or to open their eyes to what they did wrong. A point that the other standpoint could make is that being a child soldier doesn 't mitigate murder among many other crimes made from these children like torturing other soldiers. For example if you were fighting a war with your soldiers and child soldiers were fighting them and torturing them I don 't think you would want those child soldiers in your country. A point that could be made against this is that you can have these children be in rehab to change them to regular people to add to the economy. A piece of evidence that reinforces my point is that some of these children have been turned from rehab and are currently working jobs and sustaining
This has an adverse impact on their mental, social, and physical health. Many may presume that once the child’s gun is confiscated, the problem is solved; however, this is far from reality; getting a gun away from a child is one objective, and the rehabilitation process is another. Amnesty International is running a campaign to raise awareness of this major underlying issue. The problem starts with society. According to source 1, the poor and less educated become the victims due to the lack of insight on this major scam offering the children some
At the end of William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, the children whose actions were chronicled in the book committed atrocities like murder and torture. Regular children somehow did things worse than anything that they ever could have imagined back at home. This begs the question of what prompted what once were normal children to snap: the circumstances or something that was inside of them all along. The answer in my mind isn’t as simple as one or the other. A winning combination of both spurred average boys into becoming killers, because without something dark being triggered in some of the boys, no one would have even thought about the horrible things that ended up happening.
Finally Beah is forced to experience violence in a very monumental way. Beah becomes a child soldier which results in my opinion the biggest loss of innocence in his life. He is forced to kill without fully understanding what he has done. Beah also must do this with the use of drugs which results in him not being able to tell the difference between right and wrong. Beah’s experiences should stand as a lesson to all in showing the importance of innocence and family as a
Some kids were just getting incarcerated for not going to school. The relationship between crime and deviance has started to become blurred in the eyes of the justice system. No one deserves to be incarcerated for being a deviant but if a crime is committed then they have to be punished for it. Other options than mass incarceration is to put the deviants in special programs to help them and if they do not follow these programs and do what they are told to then you can incarcerate them for violating the rules of their program. Mass incarceration has become a big problem in America with over two million people currently incarcerated, but non violent crimes can be dealt with in other ways and these people do not need to be immediately incarcerated once they do something
They select their victims wisely and ensure they were not likely to tell, such as the child molester who would abuse his girlfriend 's daughter because she was a “wild kid”. To the general public, these criminals were seen as normal and decent members of the community. However, the most powerful revelation from the video is how likely society is to reject the notion of a sexual
Kids think because they’re not adults they can get away with murders but that is not the case. Many kids try and solve their problems with violence and end up making federal crimes. The law was created equally towards everyone and giving people who commit serious crimes a break would leave the streets dangerous. Kids feel that when something doesn’t go their way they want to kill the person or hurt them. Everything has a consequence and juveniles should be tried as adults.
There are many victims of unfortunate circumstances in the world today, yet some of these results could have been easily avoided. In the novel, Just Mercy, the author Bryan Stevenson addresses many cases in which children under the age of 18 are incarcerated within the adult criminal justice system. By treating children as adults in the criminal justice system their innocence and undeveloped person, become criminalized. These children become dehumanized and only viewed as full-fledged criminals and as a result society offers no chance sympathy towards them. Stevenson argues that children tried as adults have become damaged and traumatized by this system of injustice.
Child soldiers both girls, and boys go through abuse, manipulation, and sometimes sexual assault. The kids , once they realized what 's happened, want to get away and get a better life. So child soldiers should be given amnesty, as they have no idea what they are doing is wrong, are being manipulated, and are constantly
Being in an environment where there’s death all around you and all you see is killing and blood will alter a person 's’ mindset and change their behavior dramatically. Furthermore, Skeptics may say they volunteered to eliminate hundreds of lives. To demonstrate, it says “Many children occupy command positions in their armed group/military and are responsible for planning or ordering the commission of war crimes and human rights abuses.” ( Dave, 2016). Although children volunteered or were told to hold these positions they had no choice. If they would’ve had said no they could’ve been killed or tortured to death.
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.
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.
