Growing Pains On Teenage Brain

- Growing Pains In America’s society today, trying juveniles as adults is seen as a just punishment. However, trying juveniles as adults for their violent crimes is unreasonable considering how immature a juvenile is compared to an adult. Therefore, juveniles accused of violent crimes should not be held accountable on the same level as an adult due to lack of maturity. When an adolescent commits a violent crime, it does not mean that they are destined to lead a life of crime. Such actions are not a sign of things to come....   [tags: Crime, Juvenile delinquency, Criminology]

Kai Erikson argues that the events of catastrophe such as the flooding of Buffalo Creek Virginia cause a syndrome which includes pains such as numbness, reliving of the event, familial loss, loss of community as well as many others.

One of the more commonly used sets of labels is that of perpetrators, victims and bystanders. These are generally used to separate and identify the groups present in human tragedies, such as in the Holocaust or the Rwandan genocide. While this arbitrary ascription could perhaps serve a purpose in simplifying, what is certainly a convoluted and enigmatic period of history, it fails to take into account the fluidity and complexities of personal experience in Joseph Stalin’s Great Terror of 1937-38....   [tags: NKVD,soviet union, growing pains]
