During those years in jail they can learn and experience how life can officially be in a jail cell if they continue committing more crimes in the future time. When they are released out of jail they need to be sentenced 1-3 years in rehabilitation facility where juveniles under the age of 13 go to turn their life around. In Juveniles Don’t Deserve Life Sentences by Gail Garinger he mentions, “ These children were told that they could never change and that no one cared what became of them. They are denied access to education and rehabilitation programs and left without hope.” We should not throw their key to success without giving them a second chance to better them selves.
Others argue that curfew laws force teens to bond with their families, cause them to stay away from drugs and alcohol, reduce teen pregnancies, and over-all reduce crime rates. When the government tells people where they can and can’t be it brings into question civilian rights, and here in the United States more particularly, constitutional rights. In instances when a youth is out of home while a curfew law is in place, (s)he can be charged with a citation, that comes with a heavy fine. The problem with curfew laws is that they do not define the circumstances that allow a youth to be out of the home, rather, they ban all activities and circumstances after the hours defined by the law. “There are countless instances in which fairness and justice dic... ... middle of paper ... ...rights from children?

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.

That means that the courts now are also protecting rights of juveniles, which makes it even more impossible for prosecuters to convict the defendant. This then offers the child to get away with no punishment and now thinks that he/she have the right to keep on acting in a misbehaving or unlawful way which had brought him or
The only way I see to slow down the drug addicted population is to begin at an early age as the DARE program does, however, the program should continue past elementary school. I understand you can only tell an individual about drugs so many times before it loses its effectiveness. But a long-term program that builds a strong moral foundation as well as treats these young students as individuals instead of a mass entity would allow for a holistic approach to prevention. This I believe is what it will take for long-term prevention to begin within our society.
