Is stricter punishment the answer to juvenile crimes?

  • Lets be real.

    Lets be honest we were all kids once or still are and we did stupied stuff but if you do a strick crime you have to know you are gonna have strick punishment. Say some one had a one time party and the got drunk and ONLY hurt some one not killed then you should be tried as a juvenile. But if you plan a murder then you might as well plan the time you are gonna spend in jail. I bleave everyone should get a sec chance for change.

  • Depends on what they

    If some kid can plan a crime then thay might as well plan the time they are gonna be in jail. If some one had a one time party and got drunk then strick punnshment is not the way but if some pland a murder then thy should be tried as an adult. I bleave everone should get a chance. Thank about it everyone was a kid once or still is and lets be real kids do some stupid but you still need punshed but for strick crimes comes strick punishment

  • Yass yass yass

    I really think that they should be punished for what they did because if they were not punished they might not have seen what was wright and end up doing it again like if they broke the law like if they drink and drive they should be tried as juvinials but if they end up killing someone they should be tried as adults

  • If you do an adault crime, do the adault crime

    Say you are in a car with a 16 year old driver with their license, your about 13-14 years old, you see someone with a firearm, they are using it on a random person in a car. You call the police, he goes to trial, he get 3 years probation, you see him the next day, driving with a cop. The person is 15 years old, no time in jail, nothing, just probation. Anyone who knows what happened is there feels unsafe, you go back to the police and ask what happend, 2 people died,3 injured and he paid his way out of prison. Everyone would feel unsafe, if you do something like kill or badly injure someone, if an adault did ot they would get jail time, if a juvinile did it, they would get jurry duty, communitty service, and probation, no jail. A perfect example would be Eathan Couch. Never heard of him, look him up, see if you like what you see.

  • This is the answer because the worse it is the less thell want to do it again

    If you stick a 16 teen year old kid in prison with a bunch of bad people like murderes or malesters to scare the crap out of them to the point where they dont want to be there anymore i doubt theyll do it again so that might stop them from making any more bad decisions

  • They should have worst punishments then the crimes

    They should no matter what, have teribble punishments. It doesnt matter how big or how little the crime was they should still get a bad punishment. And if they dont want it then they should have thought about it before doing whatever they were going to do. Also they probably knew if they got caught they were going to get in some serious trouble.

  • Stricter punishments will help keep kids out of trouble

    Kids today are already taking advantage of the youth justice systems. Kids are getting into more trouble when we try to rehabilitate them. Stricter punishments will help to make sure that kids know what they did is wrong. They wouldn't be able to take advantage of this because they would know better than to do this kind of thing again.

  • We don't need kids that want to kill.

    If a kid can plan and do the crime we don't need them in our area they need at least 25 year or life at max because kids should be planning for adulthood not killing. Also if they are rich they should get same treatment as someone normal not rich.

  • You do the crime you do the time.

    These kids either hurt or ruined someones lives, and you should pay for that. If they kill someone then this shouldn't even be a debate, GO TO JAIL. If you robbed someone armed, go to jail for at least 5-8 years. They don't need a slap on the wrist or a stern talking to, they need hard time to think about what they've done and pay for their crimes. We shouldn't try to save them for anything, we don't need people in this world who thinks it's ok to break the law, kill people, rob people, hurt people, or anything bad.

  • They Don't know or even care if their actions affects others

    Some of them commits the crime, because they think that it will make him or her the BIG DOG, or have a reputation. Because they are so selfish they don't care if their PARENTS, FRIENDS and PEOPLE are affected by the ugly behaviour. To harsher the penalties, they should learn ....

  • 2+2 is 4 minus one thats 3 quick maths

    I ment to pick yes but im too lazy what i think is juveniles should be given parole a argument would be well what if a convict was sitting next to you well i wouldnt care but you guys are stupid they should just do fairer juding did you kill someone when you were a kid i dont think so if theyre mature enough to commit adult crimes theyre mature enough o be in prison

  • No jail would make it worse

    No first of all they have there whole life ahead of them they shoulden't have to spend it in jail. Second of all their not as mature so they will make bad choises. Thrid of all there still developing so if they grow up around bad influnces they will be bad. Fourth of allthey might be scared for life in jail.

  • Juveniles should not be punished with adult crimes or stricter punishments.

    A juvenile is not an adult therefore why would they be punished with adult crime? They don't need a punishment where it wont make them learn their lesson. For example if you threw the kid in jail and slapped them with a bunch of community service hours, it'll just make them more angry. They need therapy and time to heal their mind. They certainly do not need to be thrown in adult jail.Z

  • Stricter punishments is not the answer to juvenile crimes

    Stricter punishments will not help espcially if you put them behind bars because since they are young there minds grow to know whats right from wrong and why not to do it but if its a crime were someone was killed by the juvenile then thats when you might have to put them behind bars

  • NO, we should analyse why they do it

    Firstly, we should stop any kinds of pushing for youths. For example, at school or in their social life they have a lot of problems and they can not manage it by themselves. Also, they are stressed, bullied and badly education by their parents, they have not enough money for entertainment such as going outside with rich friends or something like that and it is an important issue for them. So, adults should find another way, except pushing them harder.

  • Teens will lose their future in jail

    There are all kinds of bad things in jail. In jail, teenagers can learn how to be a REAL criminal from other prisoner. Or simply, they could get bully,beat up or anything that could happen to teens in that place and a lot more which no one can expect. The debatestops here.

  • Punishment is strict already

    Punishment is strict already in the US; any place where people, as children, can be completely controlled by the state for the majority of their young life for simple acts of drug possessions or petty vandalism is a place that already have far too harsh of punishments in place, and should focus attention elsewhere.

  • No it's not.

    Some people think that the harsher the punishment, the worse the deterrent, but that is often not the case. Juveniles do need punishments, but more than anything than need opportunities to reform their behavior so that they can be productive members of society. Harsher punishments will most likely lead to more criminal behavior later.
