The student didn't actually have a big impact on society, and that student might just be playing a trick. Since he or she didn't really hurt anyone, they don't deserve to go to jail and be arrested. Young students, especially, couldn't have even thought about actually doing what they threatened about. Their brains are developing, unless they are college students, so their brains couldn't have possibly reached and thought beforehand about the consequences of threatening like how an adult can.

I accept this debate.

First of all, the people are doing bad things in the internet. It is unfair if we do nothing to these people who did not follow those rules. I think that we need some punishment of paying money, for the internet be a safe a communicated place.

Second of all, everything in the internet is not erased. That is why we should think.

T: True
H: Helpful
I: Important
N: Necessary
K: Kind

This is what we should always think before posting in the internet.

Thank you.

First, if a student is arrested, it shows we are not giving them another chance, and everyone deserves a new chance in their lives. We don't necessarily know for sure if they are really a bad person.
Second, hurting someone physically is very different from hurting someone with technology. It is not fair if they didn't really hurt someone, but they were punished physically.

Pro

If we give them a second chance, they can hurt more people. They get the hobby of this. If they do something bad, they will do it more times.

They should get some punishment for doing these bad things. Why would there be the equal rights for someone who did something wrong and also someone who did nothing wrong? We should make some punishments for these people, or else it is unfair and very wrong to have the equal rights.

Thank you. Vote Pro.
