We have to consider all the aspects of the child soldier cases and not deal with them in a binary way. “The aim should not be punishment of child soldiers but rehabilitation. There are alternatives that achieve this aim better than prosecution.” (Child Soldiers, Prosecution, 11). All child soldier, irrespective of their guilt, need to be rehabilitated and reintegrated into society. Child soldiers should still be prosecuted, but without black-and-white thinking.
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
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.
The child soldiers are aware that they are killing but may not be morally responsible for their actions due to their age, culture, and the conditions that led them to be forcibly turned into juvenile soldiers. Given their youth, the questions is raised about whether they possess mens rea, the guilty mind, to know beyond a reasonable doubt whether they are innocent. In the haze of war, there is no time to know whether the child soldier is acting freely on their own will and in control of their actions. To be viewed as a non-combatant, these juveniles must be unable or unwilling to defend themselves, while these juveniles are able to kill. "Consequently, decision makers in conflict zones, unavoidably, rely on normative and socially constructed conceptions of innocence and vulnerability (Gade 238).
Esperanza being hurt by the boy isn’t all Sally’s fault because the boy hurt Esperanza but Sally set up the situation. Girls can be mean on their own and so can boys, but when you put them together you can have an even worse situation on your hands. If Esperanza hadn’t rushed to grow up she wouldn’t have been hanging out with Sally and most likely would have avoided this whole situation.When the author wrote about this it really showed her lesson of don’t grow up too fast, you can only be a child once because it shows how hard it is to be an adult but it uses kids to show it. Since the author did this it was a very powerful statement, if she hadn’t used kids you would have just thought that was a thing adults do, but since she used kids it showed what happens when you grow up
I think it was his eye! Yes, it was this He had the eye of a vulture.” (page 381, Poe) The man had thought to kill the man because of the look of his eye, though he said he loved the old man because he had never wronged him. For a prosecutor that wants to put him in an institute, they could argue that he was sick and had a disease that sharpened his sense to destroy. For instance, while he was planning to kill the old man he had felt an awful drumming, a hellish tattoo. A further example can be, when the officers had come in he had become anxious, nervous and all these mad thoughts filled his head.
When these kids fall into a life of crime and violence they know the risk and the punishments. The states and psychiatrist want to be able to rehabilitate these kids. “Sadly, many states have ignored the crisis and dysfunction that creates child delinquency and instead have subjected kids to further victimization and abuse in the adult criminal justice system.” This is what the court system wants and this is what I agree
Both the Janissaries and the modern child soldiers share similar circumstances of their respective recruitment. Both Janissaries and modern child soldiers were recruited through the kidnapping of children, but also included children who joined willfully for a handful of other reasons. Many did so to escape an abusive household, generate a little money, or fight for a cause they strongly believe in, so not every member was attained through malicious means. Both were taught to use weapons at an early age, and they have been effective at killing because of it. Child soldiers, whether the Janissaries or the modern ones, were risking their lives for a cause they might not even believe in.
Sometimes you have some kids your in your grade that are bullies and try to take advantage of the kids that are smaller than them or even younger than them. Bullies can literally ruin some ones life. Multiple people around the country have killed themselves because they are being terribly bullied by someone. When situations like this happen, it 's not all the kids fault, sometimes his parents might hit each other o his parents might hit him and he just takes t out on the kids at school which is not helping nothing. So if you set a rule to enforce extracurricular activities that bully can just take his anger out the sport he is playing.
I believe sheltering children from violent media with the fear of them becoming violent or desensitized is the wrong thing to do but we should educate our children on the difference between right or wrong then exposing them to something that fake Therefore Gerard Jone doesn’t prove that violent media is actually good for children. Although people need to know and realize what actually doing to their child. He use logos in his article to convince his reader of his side of the argument. For example, he use a trouble girl that uses rap music for inspiration in expressing herself. He makes a point that nobody should ever deny a child to express themselves in any way
If they would’ve had said no they could’ve been killed or tortured to death. In most cases the group leaders only want strong soldiers who follow all commands and don’t hesitate to kill a person. If a child refuses to kill, the leaders could torture them for as long as they desire. The Child Soldiers cooperating with the leaders and doing what they are told to do will put them on their good side and won’t put their lives at stake. Doing what they’re suppose to do and showing how they’re not
Spyware is helpful because parents can protect their child from bullies and help them from people who want to harm them in real life. People who are harmed physically can impact them by causing psychosis and or Post Traumatic Stress disorder. “One friend of mine, using spyware to monitor his straight A, college-bound daughter, found out that she was using drugs and sleeping with her dealer” (paragraph 13). This father could have lost his daughter if
But ironically, when these regular citizens gain an inch of separation from their peers they immediately become the thing they despise. Nelson qualifies this idea with her inclusion of BlueServo in her essay. This was a venture to crowdsource the “looking for ‘illegals’” (Nelson 302). Initially, BlueServo was a way for citizens to serve their country, but quickly it became an easy way for damaged citizens to live out their sick fantasies. For their whole lives, people of a higher level of influence have told them what to do and when.
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.
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
