Should people under the age of 18 be able to be sentenced to the death penalty. Most teenagers are not as smart as they should be and sometimes do stupid things, that does not mean they should sentenced to death. They should be given a second chance and go to Juvenile Hall instead of ending their life.

No. It doesn't matter the age group. people mess up but no one deserves to die, i believe that they should sit in prison and rot for the rest of their life its a worse punishment in my mind because they don't get an easy way out

It is a medical FACT that the brain of juveniles are not fully structured anatomically in the same way as adult brains. The neurons are not wired the same, neurotransmitter effects are not entirely stable, not to mention the excess of various sex hormones. It is often cited that these differences are the cause of the average juvenile's inability to function rationally on the same level as the average adult.

It would not be fair to execute them for having the biological disadvantage of anatomical immaturity.

The exact same argument can be made for any age group.
