When I was asked to write a paper on this topic I was excited to see what you guys thought! I would love your feedback.

I'm arguing that teens who murder should be tried as adults and sentenced to death.

Con

Teens who have commited murder should not be tried as adults for one simple reason. Their crontal love, which controls desicion making and morality is not fully developed. They should instead be given maximum sentence of 20-30 years, as a suggestion.

So, I had some autocorrect issues last time . Basically, I meant 'frontal lobe,' not 'crontal love,' so sorry. But I would like to add that the frontal lobe isn't fully developed until about 25.

Well, since pro made no arguments twice, I do not think he has an argument to make. Please vote Con!
