Many child soldiers volunteer for this line of work. So if they made their own decisions why should we treat them like they didn’t? The reason being that child soldiers are under the influence of drugs which leaves their undeveloped brains in a unresponsive trance. This trance leave them easy to brainwash which makes them want to stay. While it may also be true that these children kill everyday, it is not true that they can just kill their commander or run away.
Responsibility should fall on whoever knowingly, willingly, and with intent carried out or caused the crime in question. “Most children are forcibly recruited and even when they enlist they may not have thought carefully about their decision or made an informed choice.” (Child Soldiers, Prosecution, 10). In some cases, the children are not responsible for their actions because they are forced to perform them. In this situation the responsibility would fall on their commanders, but not all circumstances are the same. “Many children volunteer
Many child soldiers had gone through traumatizing events, but should be given amnesty. Child Soldiers have been the cause of the death of innocent people. They were put up to do that job and went through with it without question. Many people believe that child soldiers should not be given amnesty, but others think they should be forgiven. They did not choose to kill people, most were forced, drugged, and tortured into doing it.
In the arousing argument over child soldiers, the two sides have defined themselves as believing child soldiers to be victims of war or child soldiers to be perpetrators of war. It has been heavily debated whether these soldiers should be given amnesty, or whether they should be held accountable for their crimes. Though it is a valid claim to believe that child soldiers should be given no legal forgiveness, the belief that they should be given full amnesty is a much stronger claim, for they had no choice in the harm they might have inflicted upon others, many of them had been recruited by force, and the main focus should be on rehabilitation for child soldiers, not persecution. One of the first reasons why child soldiers should be granted
The commanders are taking advantage of these innocent children because the commanders know how easily influenced the children are. These commanders making the kids significantly less innocent. Another piece of evidence is "Children are often forced into fighting and have little choice over whether or not they enlist" (Child Soldiers Prosecution). They are usually forced into becoming a soldier, and don 't have much of a choose whether they enlist or not. It isn 't their fault that such terrible things around them.
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
Theme: Minor and punishment Topic: Should minor (under 18 years of age) be trial as adult in crimes General purpose: to persuade the audience Specific purpose: To persuade the audience that minor should not be tried as adult Central idea: Minor should not tried as adult because ]they are prone to commit more crimes and they cannot survive in the environment and the solution is to not try minor as adults Introduction: As a kid we tend to be immature and we look back at our past and think about our actions and why we shouldn’t have done that. But some kids aren’t as lucky. Some kids are put into prisons with adults for actions that they might have thought was cool or through peer pressure. Children as young as 13 are sent into adult prison
Spanking Makes a Parent Wrong, Not a Misbehaved Child Despite being commonly practiced throughout society, spanking remains a highly controversial topic. Spanking is analogous to abuse in nature- it involves inflicting pain (usually by hand) onto the rear of a child in response to socially unacceptable behavior. A 2013 study conducted by The Harris Poll revealed horrifying statistics that eighty-one percent of Americans believe it is “sometimes appropriate” to spank their children (Corso) in order to establish discipline. Although this is believed by many parents to promote good behavior, it in fact does the opposite. Parents should not have the right to spank their children because it is not an effective method of changing behavior, it is
Should Immigrant Children be Allowed to Stay in the U.S? Although, some people think that immigrant children should stay in the United States of America I disagree with this because they are causing trouble in the USA. In their old countries they would think that it 's fine to steal or cause trouble, but in the USA there are laws that prohibit this type of things. Another reason is that the U.S borders are watching the boards close enough to see if letting these kids into the USA is ok. Also some of these kids that are crossing the border on their journey here some die or have really bad injuries because of this they should just stay back. In conclusion, this is why I think that Immigrant children should stay in their countries.
Therefore, I agree with the decision. If the truth come out I don’t believe Boo would have gone to jail , due to self defense and protecting the children. However, I still agree that omitting the truth in this situation is what needed to happen. Boo needed the protection, he could not survive the judgement of the people and the trial.
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.
On this side of the argument, many people believe that children are not responsible for the action they been thow. Often children have no say whether they agree or not! They been brainwashed through the use of drugs and alcohol. All of that alcohol and drugs made the children more compliant enabling them to commit atrocities, which they would never have before. Besides, many children join with carefully not thinking and through about their decision.
