  • 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.

  • Yes they should!

    Most of you claiming that the "juvenile brain" is underdeveloped is on orthodox. The normal human brain doesn't stop completely developing until the age of 22. Does that mean that we should excuse anyone under the age of 22 of their crimes? I think not. Also, if a juvenile were to come into your home, murder your whole family just for the thrill of it, your decision on juveniles not staying in prison for life, would change.

  • Yes, there should be life sentences for under 18s

    Though I am 17 and a supporter of child rights, I believe when a kid, whether he's 4 or 17, he should be in jail for life. Even if it's a very young child, he should be in prison for the rest of his/her life and NEVER be released, no matter what. If it's 1st decree murder or mass murder, he should NEVER be out of prison. EVER!!!

  • They are kids

    You have to look at every individual case. People say, "well they are kids what do they know about killing?" Exactly! They obviously went through something. You have to take into consideration why they killed. Were they sexually, verbally or physically abused? Or are they just mentally unstable? Or just plain old crazy?

  • They grow up learning.

    In order for me to explain myself I need to give an example. If a pre-teen commits a crime in which he will possibly face life in prison who should be held responsible? A kid is not born with a killing mentality; when a kid is born he knows nothing, doesn't know how to walk,eat, or even speak. They are taught, if a kid has bad behavior and starts to participate in small crimes who should be held responsible for those acts? Who taught or gave him the motive? A teen murders his parents and is sentenced to life in prison because they think "there is no fixing him". Why put the kid through that? You can't expect to fix years of trauma by caging them in until they, that's why rehab is needed. Kids need time to be "rewired"

  • 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

    Because u are young and when u grow up u mature and realise in most cases that u did something wrong so no please no death penalty for juveniles lololololol I need more words so I'm just typing this ignore this no point reading it so please stop reading it
