This as many other reasons ,such as, mental illness, parental abused, social status and much more are the main caused by murder.This is why teenager commits crime, aside that our brain still hasn 't fully develop and adults see that if they did the crime they must make they time. There are other ways to teach them a lesson, but not to locking them for their whole life. Not let them roam freely, but give them the chance to see the outside world and make the realized what they done to lose that freedom they once had
Teenagers should learn from mistakes that they might see around, wether it comes from family members or others. There is no excuse to committing these crimes because in my behalf I know committing is an insane thought. All crimes should be treated in the same regard, whether they are teenagers or adults. A crime is a crime, when tee...
Without a solid foundation of what is right and wrong, these minors will grow up believing that their actions are the norm. For this reason, minors need to be held accountable. They need to be taught that they cannot get away with their crimes. In 2007, courts with juvenile jurisdiction handled an estimated 1.7 million delinquency cases. Delinquency cases include vandalism, shoplifting, robbery, and murder.
Juveniles who commit violent crimes know exactly what they are doing, and they also had the intent to kill. Families want to blame it on violent movies or violent TV shows, but violent acts are all around us, and we are taught right from wrong at a young age. Perhaps if we start trying juveniles as adults, minors would then think twice about committing crimes in the first place. Even though many states allow juveniles to be tried as adults, other countries still have restrictions against it. Juveniles that commit heinous and malicious crimes should be tried as adults, as long as they have the understanding of what is right and wrong (Juvenile Justice 2008).
I think it starts from the family and how they were raised and what family members influenced them to criminal things. Not only do they learn that from family, but he or she could have picked things up like that from friends they have been around or maybe off television shows. Some juveniles are gang related and most crimes involves people losing their lives over it. Somehow, juveniles can maybe get it easier than someone that has already turned 18. Juveniles should be held until their court date or bond release just li... ... middle of paper ... ...all over the world should be tried as an adult because a crime is a crime no matter who committed and what age.
What Happened to Juvenile Justice? There is a great deal of controversy over the trying and sentencing of juvenile offenders today. Many will argue that because the severity of Juvenile crimes has risen, the severity of its consequences should rise; however, no matter how serious the crime is, juvenile offenders tried as adults receive far worse than they deserve. The majority of Juveniles tried as adults are hardly given any form of human rights. Adult jails are not the environment children should have to experience, especially those sentenced for misdemeanors and nonviolent crimes.
In addition, these young criminals have not fully developed their moral capacities, in which causes these criminals to grow up with the morals they began with, which may only be fixed through putting time and kept in cells, away from innocent civilians. Although, there have been rare occasions in which the defendant is sent to rehabilitation centers to improve these behaviors, however, further research is needed to put this counterclaim to rest. Therefore, there is no room for young criminals to roam the safe homes of people with their horrible acts of crime, and so they must be tried as adults and take full responsibility of their actions. Juvenile justice is a case that is being fought frequently in court due to juveniles being tried as an adult. In the case of Chancy Luna, Edwards James, and Michael Jones, three teens ruthlessly killed Australian Baseball player, Christopher Lane, by shooting him in the back with a .22 revolver.
Honestly, the juvenile system needs to be diminished. All offenders need to be persecuted at adults. This is the only way we can ever get any criminal back to being a productive member of society. I am a kid and most think that I would want to keep our system this way, but without my solution, the people that were competent enough to commit a crime will no longer be considered competent at all, criminals will get off of their crime because they are “too young”, and our juveniles will continue to disrespect all of the rehabilitation opportunities we are throwing at them. And I say to you, without my system…there go the Anarchists.
Youthful offenders have a reason for the crimes they have committed. Past life trauma is one of the most common causes for youthful offenders to stand in a criminal court. But the big guys seem to not understand the development of children/teenagers are going through. No matter how critical the crime has appeared, everyone should stop for one second and stand in their shoes. Up until today, youthful offenders, no matter how young they are, they are being treated as adults.
Life is precious and we live it only once, however, what we do with it is to our own discretion. It is a shame that many people at young ages decide to live a life of misdeeds and become what we call juvenile criminals, but, every action has a consequence and to deal with these unlawful adolescent we have the Juvenile Justice Department. The juvenile justice system is a network of agencies that deal with juveniles whose conduct has come in conflict with the law. These agencies include police, prosecutor, detention, court, probation, and the Department of Juvenile Corrections. However, when young offenders commit a series of crimes, constantly being in trouble with the law, they are waivered into Adult court where they will be subject to any
