If nobody puts a stop to the teenagers that are committing crimes than more and more teenagers are going to start committing crimes. When a teen doesnt get big punishment they believe it's okay to continue doing what they're doing. If you don't correct or point out they are doing something wrong then they will never fix it. Imagine living in a world with not so many teens committing crimes. It will be a better world to live in not only for the teens but also for the smaller kids they will have better role models.
Minors should not be treated the same as adults when it comes to committing crimes. The consequences may affect the minors negatively. Minors have a higher chance of rehabilitation if they are tried through juvenile court so that they can become better members of civilization. Despite that, some people think that minors may not learn their lesson if they are put through juvenile court, but minors should not be treated the same as adults. Minors should be treated for their age, not their crime so that they have the opportunity to change and become a better member of
Once a child is tried as an adult they are isolated and do not receive the attention they need. Trying them as adults will only make matters worse due to their inability to interact with society once set free. The opposing side displayed that research suggested adolescents squeezed through the adult system are more likely to come out as violent career criminals than similar kids handled on the juvenile side (Lundstrom 88). This is false, due to researching more about each child it has came to my knowledge that a majority of kids released had a tendency to go back in to jail for committing other crimes such as theft or assault. Speak of Alex King, whose’ story of “Angels of Death”,
Because of this, Some people would argue that with public shaming a punishment is extended beyond the sentence. The reason they argue this is that with the inclusion of social media, a criminal and their family could be harassed after the sentence has been served. Public shaming is very different from public harassment. Public shaming “is ostensibly a moral exercise intended to enforce certain social norms” (Suzy Khimm). Also, Although they may be harassed, the criminal did commit a crime and is entitled to a form of
Children may think that their parents are evil for not letting them do something or not letting them go somewhere, but in reality they always have a good reason for saying no. In our world today and in the stories we read, there are people who are more evil than anyone 's parents. In each of the stories “Cask of Amontillado” and “The Most Dangerous Game,” the two characters Montresor and General Zaroff are both very evil and two faced. General Zaroff is more evil of the two men because he does not value human life, he makes his prey feel comfortable while they are staying with him, and he gives his prey no chance for survival. First of all, General Zaroff is the more evil of the two men, because he does not value the human life.
When the child says, “Please let me out. I will be good!”(LeGuin, par.8) it demonstrates the readers that He doesn't even know the reason it is suffering. He thinks that he did something wrong and that is why they suffer him. Readers can also see inside the text that people in this community have no emotion about the child, and even the ones that feel sorry are scared to speak. This fear and numbness of characters let us know that Omelas is a dystopian society.
I sometime believe so, because people believe many time even if the people know first they justify their action until they believe that it’s ok. Other people believe that it is ok even when they know they are wrong 7) What do you think are the reasons for the apparent increase in dishonesty? There are so many reason why people increase in dishonesty. People are becoming more and more dishonest because they believe that if they will definitely be punished, but if they lie there is a chanced they will get away with what they have done. When the social-conflict approach looks at white collar crime versus regular criminal behavior, it suggests that the inequality of consequences for breaking the law shows how justice is not blind because power and privilege make a difference in the court process and
In today's society there are more kids committing horrible crimes that people see as a crime that only an adult can commit due to the age difference. Whether it may seem as if it's just a kid being a kid there are many factors that take play into the reasoning of the kids actions like not fully developed, mentally ill, family abandonment, easily influenced, not raised right or not a stable home. I believe that children should not be prosecuted as adults for many reasonable reasons considering more than the way they are portrayed. Youths are often taking after others without them realizing if that person does the right thing or not, not even thinking about what the consequences may be. Therefore, a child should not take full fault of the actions
Also, according to the Invisible Children Association, “...child soldiers are often forced into fighting through false promises. They are also forced into fighting through drugs and alcohol.” This shows how they are forced and they think what they are doing is okay because they are brainwashed. These children are being misled and sometimes threatened to commit horrible acts, that they wouldn’t do if they knew what was happening. But these children were never taught what is right and wrong. Also, there are better things than
