The practicability of Youth Offenders should be Imprisoned
Debate Rounds (3)
1st point It will not reduce crime rates
So for starters, children/teenagers are becoming so blindly immature these days it's ridiculous. I think it would be a great idea if youth offenders would get a taste of what will happen when they are older if they continue to offend the law in such ways. It will teach them to grow up, to put it bluntly. There's a saying, 'spare the rod and spoil the child' If people really love their youth, then this law will be put into place to help them the hard way. It's harsh I agree, but necessary in order to straighten out these people's lives.
Ha, quite hard to argue against what I want to argue for
So you say that it will violate the youths' rights, well the whole argument is '...youth offenders should be imprisoned' so if that's the case then it's not violating their rights because it will be the new law that any youth that offends must be imprisoned.
And for the record, no-one is innocent, even children. For your school work you could, if you want, pull a quote from the bible saying that we are all sinners, and not innocent. :)
There is this 12 year old guy who shoots his uncle and he said he thought it was only a toy. They are young to understand things like this. Have pity for them. They are innocents.
They will rebel if they would be put into prison.
They will be traumatized and will affect their values.
Remember, we are talking about youths here, not 6 year olds.
Again with the 'innocent' thing, I thought I told you already that no-one is innocent; especially a youth, who is at that period in their life where immaturity, cheekiness, the feeling of invincibility and devious plans are all that is in their brains (no offense). A small amount of pity is due to them therefore, as of the amount of trouble and mischief that youths get into, but it certainly isn't going to kill them let alone traumatize them to lock them up for a while to break that rebel inside of everybody.
