  • Yes, They know the difference between right and wrong.

    When kids hit the age of at least 10 they should have been taught the difference between right and wrong. They know fully what they are doing and they also know they shouldn't. If they have the mental capacities to think of a murder and follow through, they have no right to be tried as a kid because those thoughts are very mature.

  • Yes of course, they knew what they were doing.

    They knew what they were doing when they committed the crime, and they also knew there would be consequences behind their actions. What if a group of children tied your child on rail tracks and didn't have reason to do so, it was just for fun. Now your child is dead, killed instantly. You wouldn't want life for that group of children?

  • I am a Ten year old

    And I believe that depending on the crime such as rape, assault, murder, sexual abuse, and property destruction like burning or breaking SHOULD definitely be tried as an adult because even though the law is that you have to be at least 18 we shouldn't be letting kids get away with those sort of crimes because Juvenile Detention Centers do not give the same punishment as a prison or jail does. But I do wish the government would use Circle Justice more.

  • Yes, and the reason is

    Well...I didn't think I'd get this far soooooooo just like this like. Okay now I have 29 more words to go, so now I will just waste not only your time but my time to get likes out of this. So, how is everyone's day going? Good? Thats good. Okay I'm done. Thanks. Like this.

  • They should be tried

    When i was 10, I knew that if i was to even steal a candy bar i would go to jail like everyone else. It's idiotic to say your brains don't fully develop until your mid twenties and by the way, your brain has developed 95% to its full potential at 16. SMA.

  • No!!!!!! They should NOT

    Kids are young, do you think that they would be able to survive mote than a YEAR in prison? If a kid commits a SERIOUSLY bad crime like murder, then HELL YEAH, but otherwise, NO WAY! If we did that, well, I couldn't say much for our species.
    SO NOOOOOOO!

  • No, that's an outrage.

    Kids' minds are not fully developed and some kids come from a broken home, just like Robert Yummy Sandier. He was a kid whose parents were always coming in and out of jail, and nobody gave him any attention. Kids always take after their parents, so Yummy kept on going to jail.

  • No never, why does mankind think this?

    It's not right I negate that juveniles charged with violent crimes should be tried and punished as adults. To ensure there are no misconceptions in interpreting the resolution, I will provide the following definitions. Merriam-Webster's Dictionary of Law defines juvenile as an individual who is under an age fixed by law at which he or she would be charged as an adult for a criminal act. Many state justice systems consider 17 and under a juvenile. In North Carolina, a juvenile is fifteen years and younger. Black Law's Dictionary defines violent crime as a crime that violates the rights of one's person or property. Thomson Gale Legal Encyclopedia defines an adult as a person who by virtue of attaining a certain age, generally eighteen, is regarded in the eyes of the law as being able to manage his or her own affairs. My value will be Sanctity of Human Life, which is important because every human has rights, dignity, and value. This value relates to the resolution because by trying and punishing juveniles as adults undermines the value of today's youth and what they could become. One mistake should not ruin the rest of a fifteen-year-old boy or girl's life. My criterion will be the protection of rights. This criterion is important because the rights of juveniles in the justice system, such as confidential records and rehabilitation services, are kept in place to help juveniles continue with their future. This criterion achieves my value premise because how well one's rights are protected can have a big impact on the sanctity or worth of one's life. My first contention is that juveniles are not capable of meaningful participation in his or her defense. A Criminal Justice Magazine article states, "Just as the capacities of some adults are limited by their mental disorders so, too, may some youths' participation in the legal process be limited by their as-yet underdeveloped capacities." The article goes on to address the juvenile's understanding of the law and ability to assist counsel makes them less capable of participating in the defense than the average adult defendant. Even though youths may develop the capacity for understanding rights early in adolescence, it often takes additional time and life experiences before their capacity influences their actual understanding. Knowing the difference between right and wrong is different than understanding long consequences. A Miranda Rights Study showed that the ability to comprehend legal information is poorer in adolescents of low intelligence than adults of likewise low intelligence. The same study also suggested youth have trouble separating the defense attorney from court authority. About a third of them (compared to about ten percent of adult offenders) believed the lawyer could decide to report the defendant's guilt to the court or whether to "let him go or send him up.

  • Kids should not be

    I don't think that kids should be tried as adults because they are not usually use to things like this and there brains are not fully developed so it not all there fault also kids are also tempted to do things because of peer pleasure and it is not there fault

  • No, kids should not be tried as adults.

    If a kid were to commit a heinous crime, I would be much more worried about his/her psychological well-being and his/her home life than in making sure they are punished. According to neuroscience, the brain does not fully develop until our mid twenties. Though our understanding of right and wrong has surely been developing for many years before this time, we cannot count on a child to truly understand all aspects involved in committing a crime.

  • Just Kids.

    Kids should not be tried as adults. They are still learning how to become a good member of society and should be able to make mistakes without fully facing the consequences until they are fully able to make the right choices. That takes time, and children need to be given that time.

  • No, except in extreme cases.

    Trying children as adults assumes parents are not responsible for raising them, that it should be on the shoulders of "the village" to rule and enforce corrections. If a child exhibits adult-like planning in a murder, for example, he or she should absolutely be tried as an adult. But mostly, I believe the parents/guardians of children should be tried for the bad seed they helped raise.

  • Its just no

    Because thy are just young and their brain is still developing and that why is children being tried as juveniles parents will complain because they are just young they don't know anything about these things and they don't know how to survive in jail and yeah that's all i got.
    Please like this, thanks.

  • No I do not believe all kids should be tried as adults.

    Because they are KIDS. Some kids do not know right from wrong because parents arent doing their jobs. Some kids have been influenced by the street and just need some rehabilitation. In some cases where you have a 17 year old shoot up the school yes i do believe they should be tried as adults because at 17 you know right from wrong!

  • I say nooooo

    I don't think they should. It also matters with the crime that they committed. If the murdered someone then yes. If they stole something then no. They shouldn't but it matters on what crime is committed. If they think it is funny yes. If they are sorry for what they did then no. It also matters with the crime
