Should juveniles under 18 receive life sentences?

  • The world is ending

    Why do we need to be talking about this kids should not be even htinking about killing others, yet here we are talking about whethr or not to try minors for life sentences. None the less kids are still killing people, we need to stop them, and imposing a life sentence would.

  • They should be

    If they are too young to go to prison cells then i believe they are too young to commit that crime which led them to the cell too. They are kids, yeah. But arnt they kids too for committing the crime. So i believe they should be definitely imprisoned for what they did.

  • Yes, they should be sentenced depends on their reasons of them doing crimes.

    Due to the existence of this rule that Juvenile should not be sentenced, it had indirectly encouraged the youngsters to do crimes. They do not care whether they are thinking rightly or not and they just do what they feel like doing. This rule saying that juvenile should not be sentenced had become their rights and motivation for them to rob, rape and murder fearlessly as they will not be sentenced even if they do so. If they were jailed as their punishment, some lucky ones may have realize what they did is wrong, but if they do not realize of their past mistakes, they are just growing in an environment with anger and will revenge some day. Therefore, to eliminate these people in the world and also to reduce juvenile crimes, juvenile should be sentenced to alert them for their actions.

  • Yes, they should

    The victims' families need to feel some sense of justice for what they have lost. Even though juveniles brain aren't developed at that age they should be able to differentiate what is right and what is wrong. They can't just be let off the hook because they are young. They need to learn from that mistake. Even if you take into consideration what they have been through and the diseases they have they still need to get punished at that age. Another persons life was taken away from them by force so why should the juveniles that committed the crime be free.

  • There NEEDS to be an avenue...

    It is safe to say the teenagers may commit any type of crime that an adult may commit. Of course, it is already taken into account that the teenager's brain is not fully developed and they also have not experienced many life lessons that an adult may have experienced. For this reason, teens and adults are not tried under the same circumstances. However, there needs to be a way to keep harmful people that are not able to function in a normal society, in a predicament where they are able to contribute to their environment and their life in the most positive way that they are capable. Therefore, it can be concluded that a life sentence may be necessary in order to keep everyone safe. It is in the constitution that EVERYONE'S rights should be protected. This is a way to do so.

  • NO they shouldnt

    Under developed brains have very hard times assessing consequences and it severely hinders the brain's decision making process. Of course a child should not go unpunished for a crime (especially one that deserves a life sentence for an adult) but I do believe that for a child to commit such crimes, there must be emotional trauma or poor role models in their lives but someone who has lived 18 years and younger has a good chance of being rehabilitated and should not experience the rest of their life behind bars

  • Kids, Not Adults

    Kids are different from adults. They act differently, they do things differently, and so many more things.

    What's the point of making kids suffer in prison for their entire life if they haven't grown up yet? Their brains aren't fully complete and they still needa learn things throughout their life.

  • They should not

    Its stupid to think that the people under 18 will be able to achieve anything in the cells of a prison. They will just make criminal friends and get into trouble in jail and get more time or parole. They should just be put in a detention center or go to military schools and get parole. They should not be served such a big punishment, i mean, most adults dont even get life sentences.

  • No there should not

  • No they shouldn't.

    Minors have a under developed pre-frontal cortex compared to a fully grown adult. The pre-frontal cortex is a part of the brain that controls logic and reasoning. Minors can only think with emotion due to this handicap. The pre-frontal cortex is not fully developed until the age of 21 or sometimes longer.
