  • Yes they should

    When a minor has an extremely long streak of crimes it's time to start charging them as an adult when they haven't learned from the first 2 criminal acts. Clearly they know what they're doing by now and believe they will keep getting off easy. So they should be charged as adults.

  • Yes they should

    In many incidents,children commit crime of adult such as murder,rape,robbery,child molestation and etc..).For the most serious crime such as murder,rape,and child molestation they deserve to be charged as an adult because these crime are very serious.So i would say a person age 14 should be charged as an adult,yes they.

  • Violent Crimes are Violent Crimes.

    Anyone that commits a crime like premeditated murder, rape, or other violent and destructive crimes, should be charged as adults. This does not mean that thievery and petty crimes should be charged as adults. Major violent crimes deserve a proper punishment, so that we can get those kind of people off of the streets. Would you want a murderer playing with your children after a short sentence from juvenile court?

  • Sometimes, Minors Need to be Charged as Adults

    In certain cases, minors commit crimes that are too heinous to result in a juvenile punishment. Certain offenders that are minors should be charged as adults so that they receive the stiffest punishment possible. We can't allow children to commit terrible crimes and then receive a slap on the wrist just because they're young.

  • Sometimes Minors Act Like Adults

    I believe it is best for youth to receive a second chance by going through the juvenile justice system. I think it is important because youth are apt to making mistakes and bad judgments. However, if they do not learn and grow from that second chance and continue to break the laws, then I believe they should be charged as adults.

  • Minors should be charged as adults.

    Minors should be charged as adults. Depending on what kind of crime that they commit, I think that if they are going to do something bad then they should expect to do the time. It should not matter to the court system the age of the individual that is found guilty.

  • Yes in certain situations

    The courts should be allowed the ability to charge a kid as an adult. It should not be the norm but should be allowed. In most cases there is no need to treat them as an adult but if the case comes up where they should then it should be allowed to do.

  • Yes, Depending on the crime...

    Minors should be charged as an adult if the crime they committed is heinous. It is not much of a difference between an adult and a minor who commits the same crimes except their age. Plus kids should already know that in every thing they do their will be consequences.

  • They should depending on the charge and their age

    Let's say it's a day before you turn 18 and you get your hands on some alcohol then jump behind the wheel of a car and kill someone. Well you are adult enough to be charged like an adult.

    Now let's say you are 11 years old and you are playing with a loaded handgun and you shoot it off killing your sister, it's still pretty bad but we are talking about a preteen that never should have been playing with that in the first place so in that case no.

    It depends on the crime and the age of each minor.

  • Lack of Brain Growth.

    Studies have proved that a person limbic system doesn't reach maturity until the age of twenty five. When the emotional side of your brain isn't mature, the decisions you make are unable to be rational thought out to a full extent. So sequentially a minor cant be fully responsible for their actions.

  • No. Minors shouldn't be tried as adults!

    In no other situation would a child be considered an adult. A child cannot buy tobacco, lottery tickets or other things, no matter what! They are to be considered minors. Why is it any different with court? These are children, they don't fully understand what they've done, how could they when the brain is not fully processed until the age of about 25 I believe.

  • Only For Felonies

    Minors should be charged as adults only if a felony crime is allegedly committed. Assault, robbery, manslaughter, rape and murder are all heinous crimes that deserve harsher punishments than can be doled out in juvenile courts. When serving time, minors and juveniles shouldn't be subjected to adult jails because they'll get beat up every day and their safety is at risk.

  • No they should not.

    Minors should not be charged as adults especially since many minors do not fully understand what they did or really meant to do it. Maybe they just took a joke too far, or were out having fun and did not realize they were causing problems for others. There is too many variables in the situation.

  • Let me rephrase that, should your child be charge as an adult in any circumstances?

    We’ve all had our rebellious moments as teens. Of course, everyone’s mistakes differ in many varieties of levels. One teen smoking weed while others killed for different reason or motives that could have been persuaded under the influence or were simply brainwashed into gangs and obviously there’s those weird, mentally ill kids who commit a massacre because he or she needs mental help trying to cope with life. The point is who we are as teens should not determine where or who we should be in the future or for the rest of our lives because it is the stage where we are still learning and growing. How will we proof to society that we have grown and learned from our mistakes when we are sitting in a cell facing time without a chance to show (positive) growth potential. The young mind is easy to manipulate so why not manipulate it to change for better than to punish that child severely.

  • No, a minor should not be charged as an adult.

    Children, even children who commit crimes, need to be protected. What could we as a society gain from putting minors in prison with violent adults? The goal should be to stop the criminal behavior, not put them in an environment where they will learn worse behaviors. In addition, children in prison with adults will surely become victims of unspeakable crimes.

  • Minors Should Not Be Charged as Adults

    Minors should not be charged as adults. Simply put they are minors because they are not considered adults. They do not have the maturity or life experiences to behave as an adult in some cases. We can all look back at our pasts and come up with an instance or two we would shake our heads at. If the minor commits a serious crime, it can still be dealt with effectively through Juvenile Justice. Minors do not have the same rights as an adult, why should they be charged as an adult?

  • Undeveloped.

    No, minors 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.
