In the criminal justice system everyone has the right to be treated equally regardless the age they have. This society that were living in believes many juveniles offender are being treated differently regard to what age are the juveniles and there brain is not fully developed is injustice the court of law has the right to treat the juveniles the same way as a adult.

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.

What will happen if a teenager commits a violent crime and doesn’t get punished justly for their committed crime? Teenager are on the edge of being adults so they should be treated like adults. They must know the consequences for the felony. They just shouldn’t be warned for what they have done. What would happen if they commit the crime again and again and again and still nothing.
This theory means to punish the offenders in the system. A crime is a crime and for that reason Juveniles who commit violent crimes should be tried in the same way as older adults. If minors who commit violent crimes were tried as adults and punished the same as adults, the number of violent crimes devoted by minorities would decline. The drop that occurred in most of the U.S. during the past decade resembles with the fact that most states now permit minors to be tried as adults for violent crimes and all states have a procedure for transferring juveniles to the adult criminal system.

The minor had the ability to know right from wrong, but he still chose to commit the heinous crime anyway. Choosing to commit this violent crime means that the minor chose to act as an adult and must be held accountable. Once the minor has made the decision to act as an adult, they must be treated as an adult. If we do not teach minors that what they did has consequences they will never learn. Arguments can be made that minors should not be treated as adults and while these arguments do have merit, they are not my beliefs.
However, juveniles are committing violent crimes because they believe their age will get them off easy. “In order to provide justice to victims and their families and to prevent more and more juveniles from committing violent crimes, the United states must hold criminals accountable; regardless of their age, and impose a tough punishment system. To that end, juveniles should sometimes be tried as an adult.”(Mary). This shows juveniles are manipulating the justice system, and in fact old enough to take responsibility for the crimes they commit. In today society.

Trying Children as Adults for Criminal Offenses Should Juveniles be Tried as Adults? Violent crimes are committed in the United States everyday. Almost one-half of them are committed by teenagers ages 13 through 17 ("End of Line" 484).
