Do you think that reducing the amount of juvenile offenders in prison would lower the crime rate?

  • You spare the rod, and you spoil the child.

    Discipline is lacking in this world today. They're only looking at the age and emotions and the future of the child. Be futuristic and strict. Stealing a candy is different from killing another people. A juvenile prison is different from adult prison. I believe children today are already rational beings and self conscious people, with technologies are also rising up. Children who are afraid and follows will turn them life upside down, they will strive for the better. They will not rebel if you teach them well, not to punish. PRISON is not only for punishment but also to rehab, to prevent, to teach while he is in the prison which is separated from adults. Be a leader to them don't make them leader to you. Because in the end they will be more effective than just spoiling and giving them what they want is a soft way. In order to make them successful they must learn in a HARD WAY. They will strive that they will not end up like an Adult criminal because they know the feeling of being in prison already.

  • Yes, they should be given education.

    Most of the juvenile offenders in the prison system should be punished but also educated and rehabilitated. If we do not put them into prisons with hardened older criminals, then the crime rate as a whole would most likely go down as the young people will not become indoctrinated into the criminal mind even more deeply.

  • They will be out to commit more.

    No, reducing the amount of juvenile offenders in prison will not lower crime rates, because the people will be more likely to out on the streets committing crime. Some people are always going to be predisposed to be unable to follow the law. These people should be disabled by being in jail, so that they cannot be out hurting other people.

  • Reducing the amount of juvenile offenders in prison would not lower the crime rate.

    Reducing the amount of juvenile offenders in prison would not lower the crime rate. I think that juveniles need to serve their time otherwise they would be out on the streets committing the same crime again. I think that juveniles should be held to the same sentence as an offender of an older age.

  • No, they would be out offending.

    No, reducing the amount of juvenile offenders in prison would not lower the crime rate, because most juveniles are already predisposed to crime by the time they are in prison. Letting them out of prison would only put them on the streets to begin committing crimes. At least they are disabled from committing crimes while they are in prison.

  • More Criminals on the Street?

    I do not believe reducing the amount of juveniles in the prison system would lower the crime rate. Essentially reducing the number of juveniles in the prison system, assumes that these individuals are going home, probably into the same situation that landed them in prison in the first place. This would essentially just put more criminals out on the street, but now they've learned they don't have to pay the time for the crime, making them more likely to commit more crimes in the future, because there are no punishments.
