Although that the possibility should also be there, there are a few that will completely rehabilitate. But most will not and should deserve to stay incarcerated for the rest of their life for taking a life or other monstrous crimes. These juveniles that commit horrible crimes are not brain dead, but the violence-loving culture that is a part of our society is a part of it. It is not a solid argument for juveniles that commit heinous crimes. Knowing what is right and wrong is not hard to grasp.
Child soldiers are found in many countries around the world such as Iraq, the Central African Republic, Afghanistan and many more. Many child soldiers are born into poor families where they do not get any food, so they are encouraged to go fight because they get food and shelter when they fight in the army and children who are not forced to be soldiers volunteer themselves because they feel social pressure. Despite the fact that people think child soldiers should not be given, I believe that child soldiers should be given amnesty because they are forced into fighting, the commanders give them things that influence them to kill people, and they should not prosecuted and put into rehabilitation. First, child soldiers are forced into fighting for the armed forces. Most of the time they do not have a choice in whether or not they get to fight.
The boy had been trained in the art of war since they were born and they had nothing else to do. These kids were taken from their family and sent to the camps at age 14. From this it was concluded that the people that fought the Mongols did not really have a chance against them. The Mongols had farther superior strategies and that is why they managed to kill so many people from the opposing armies. Even with all these things that they did they managed to try to make those empires great again but under Mongol rule.
Although some believe that child soldiers shouldn’t be given amnesty, they should because of their age, what they have endured in the past, and their mental effects. To start off, child soldiers should be given amnesty due to their age. Andrea Prasow, the Deputy Washington Director, stated, “They will never see the video of his interrogation by Canadian intelligence agents where he is lying on the floor crying for his mother. Nor will the prosecution present evidence of international law that required Khadr to be treated differently upon capture from other detainees because of his age.” Khadr’s sentence wasn’t reduced even though he was “lying on the floor crying for his mother.” Psychologically, the children’s minds are still
Children are not permitted the same rights and responsibilities an adult has. A child doesn’t have the same standards as an adult has. A good example is children don’t get to join the military as an adult could they must be 18 years and older to join the military. Teenagers don’t make the same decisions as an adult would. “With appropriate treatment most children who commit crimes, even the most violent crimes, can be rehabilitated and become responsible adults.”(Berger) The reason why is because their brains are still changing they are still going throw a change they are still growing.
‘Free range parenting’ can lead kids into not making the best choices and some people think that they live too independently. Free range parents are parents that raise their kids to live freely but not make them do something they can’t do. This parenting style can also prevent children from being abducted and murdered (The Pros and Cons of Helicopter Parenting). Although the chances of getting abducted and murdered are higher with free range parents, in general it is not likely that the child will be in much danger. More than ¾ of child abductions are caused by family members or friends of the child (Radford).
In the article Child Soldiers Should Be Prosecuted, it states “ In Sierra Leone child soldiers committed acts of rape, mutilation and mass killings of civilians.”(na some people will think that they should be held against their crimes but they were forced to kill by the commanders they would have not done any of these stuff if they weren’t forced to do it they were kids and believed in everything so when they got taken the commander could have told them he's their dad so they look up to him as a leader and do everything they say so they will also do it for food because they don’t get to eat if they don’t kill and go out to war. Also, it must be said that they are just little kids and they don’t know what is right from wrong in the article armed and underage, it states, “He is shouldering an automatic fully loaded rifle.” This shows that they are little and they are forced to carry the gun or they will be made an example of by the commanders or some of the commanders solder and then they will use that to have more control over them because they will be scared and they will know what will happen if they try to display him. This is why some people think that they should be prosecuted but they should be given amtey because they were young and they were forced into
Teenagers who commit adult crimes should indeed be tried as an adult. I believe they should be accountable for their actions and tried as adults. Babies as young as 6 months seem to know when they are doing something wrong or right. Many people don’t agree, but put it this way, if a teenager hurt one of your family members and there was no justice to what they did, but keep in my mind you will never see your child or family member anymore you just want to get justice for the person who dared to hurt your child. Many people use the phrase “ They inherit it from their parents” (Jessica p.1).
Likely, this also shown the principles in Waknuk have blinded the people terribly, people always think it is the punishment from God toward them but actually it is not. People in Waknuk are punished each other as well as from the belief spills of the “Old People” have left, however, these principles made the Waknuk society fall. Therefore, people in Waknuk should have acceptance to deviation and mutant people rather than send to the Fringes or kill them because they could lose talented people that could rise their
There are over two hundred fifty thousand child soldiers in the world today (Bleasdale, Child Soldiers)! Though, child soldiers are not prevalent in developed nations, children in developing countries are in danger of being kidnapped and being forced against their will to fight for a cause they know nothing about. There have been child soldiers since before world war one (Child Soldiers) which is still continuing due to their effectiveness. Effective child soldiers are those that do not have any qualms following orders and are willing to commit any act whereas regular soldiers allow their morals to control their actions. In addition, effective child soldiers are those that not only think for themselves, but those that are able to plan and
The rebels start to torture and taunt these children as Ishmael’s group watched. Therefore, making it evident of the before and after of the war, no one at that age would be disrespected before the war, which made the effects of the social norms evident. They are continuously reminded of the rebels that killed their families and that they are inhumane. The theme of the horror of war is prevalent throughout the novel as Ishmael and the other boys face
Child Soldiers should not be prosecuted, but should be rehabilitated. These are all the reasons why these children should not be prosecuted. Why I think these children needs to go to rehab is because that they are too young and they are not even mature enough. People who prosecute Child Soldiers Might be insane furthermore, children are not even an adult they might be influenced by drugs and think it is good. unless you are an adult, then you may need to be prosecuted, other than that children are too young to go to rehab and needs to understand life.
Robert Cantu, a neurosurgeon and colleague of Stern 's at Boston University who did not work on the study, said that young brains are more vulnerable to hits because they lack the coating on the nerve fibers, called myelin, that provides strength and helps transmit information. In 2011, Cantu began advising families with children to avoid tackle football and stick with flag football if possible through the age 14 (Farrey). These doctors have made good points on the subject, but how can parents tell their children they can 't play a sport that they love? A mother who 's son had a traumatic brain injury while playing youth football has no problem telling her other children no and spreading the word about the dangers of youth football. Debra Pyka wants children under the age of 14 to stop playing tackle football in youth leagues (Jones).
