Why should teen felons get to spend their jail time in juvenile detention centers for committing the same crimes as adults? In today’s world, teens are increasingly committing violent crimes and being put in juvenile detention centers. Teens need to be tried as adults because it helps to bring justice to families of victims, and it also teaches the teens accountability. Charging teens as adults will also help reduce crime in the United States. Although many people feel that teens should not be given severe punishments because they are immature and innocent, they have not considered the problem teens are creating by committing these crimes..
Initially named Marguerite Annie Johnson, Maya Angelou, the daughter of Vivian and Bailey Johnson, was born in 1928. From the ages of three to seven, Maya Angelou grew up with her grandmother, a great role model whom she admired for her strength, integrity, and faith and whom she wrote about in later life. When she returned to her mother in Missouri as a seven-year-old, her mother’s boyfriend raped her. The court found the man guilty, but strangely released him resulting in his murder by Angelou’s uncles soon after, which Maya Angelou felt responsible for, having supported his release by lying at his trial. Maya Angelou proceeded not to speak for the next five years in fear that others might die.
However, once this is revealed, all of these similar ‘heroic’ qualities turned dark. In a monologue before attempting to kill Sidney, Jill reveals that her plan all along wasn’t to just kill her, it was to “become” her. (Scream 4). She felt neglected all of her life because of her relation to Sidney, and believes the only way to get the attention she’s been deprived of is to kill Sidney and take on the fame she’s gained over the years as a survivor of the previous murders, ultimately replacing her. She confirms this when she says “do you know what it was like growing up in this family?
The Consequences of Betrayal “The saddest thing about betrayal is that it never comes from your enemies….it comes from friends and loved ones” (Ash Sweeny). Ash Sweeny’s quote can be considered true for many reasons. It applies to both to the situation of betrayal in “The Tragedy of Julius Caesar” by Shakespeare and with the death of Skylar Neese a 16-year old girl murdered by her best friends. Both of them were betrayed not by enemies but by loved ones and friends, which is where betrayal originates according to Sweeny. Julius Caesar and Skylar Neese were both stabbed to death and killed by their best friends, both of them being victims of the greatest form of betrayal and the both of them completely unsuspecting.
“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. The brain where it “regulates aggression, long range planning, mental, flexibility, abstract thinking has not yet been developed.”(Berger) In the article “Justice for Juveniles” a child is tried as an adult his parents don’t want him to go to jail because they say it is too big for him, and he wouldn’t last a day in there. The judge didn’t bother to
All kids should be given a second chance at life and that's why they created the juvenile court system so kids could have a second chance to life and maybe redeem themselves. In the article Juveniles don't deserve life sentences by Gail Garinger it talks about how juveniles do a crime the longest they an stay is until they are 18-21 years of age. With all this in progres we could work to rehabilitate half or most of the kids. In conclusion, kids should not be treated as adults because they don't know any better. Also if kids can't drink, drive, or go to R rated movies why can the be tried as adults it makes no sense kids will always be kids no matter the situation they are in you can't treat them as adults for one simple mistake that they made.
Juveniles that commit heinous crimes, such as murder, should be sentenced to life in prison because their mind is developed enough to where they are conscious of what they are performing. When juveniles commit crimes, people say they are not fully aware of what they are implementing. People also say that juveniles should not be sent to life in prison because they haven’t lived their full life and they need to experience more within the world. What they have not noticed is that they need to somehow learn from their mistakes. How are they going to learn if they supposably “do not” know what they did
Also on that same article it say “ Nathaniel Brazil , now is fourteen, charged as an adult with first-degree murder. He returned to Lake Worth, Fla middle school and shot to death and English teach, who would not let him say good-bye to two girls on the final day of class.” This quote explains on how Brazil stately killed his teacher because of how he felt he let his inner feelings control and that is mostly how some teens commit crimes. Although, some facts backs up on why juveniles should go to jail my claim is true enough more important that they shouldn’t because it states how kids are kids they see things and learn from it. Next, it wouldn’t be right to let a juvenile’s go to jail where grown men sexually abuse other men it’s just harsh. Overall, I think juveniles should not be convicted as an adult because their children not an adults even if they made an adult decision.
