  • If they can commit crimes like adults, then why a concession in their punishment?

    The question in debate is about having an option. Yes. It should definitely be there. If a juvenile commits a crime, which is way beyond the potential of others of his age to do, it logically means, that his level of mental development is much higher than his physical age - his physical age does not match his level of thinking. If there can be students, who at the age of 10 can clear high school and get to university, which is something commendable, on the negative side, it is not impossible to find children, with the criminal ADULT mindset. Now, if they are given a JUVENILLE type punishment, it would obviously not have an effect on them. To make them realize what they have done and to charge them for their crime, severe methods, equal to what are undertaken for adults, need to be adopted. The crime they have committed, is a reflection of the fact they are different from the rest of their age. A simple punishment wouldn't suffice then.

  • Yes it should

    Yes I think that our legal system should have an option to charge some juveniles as adults. I think that if the crime is heinous and violent, then the juveniles should be charged as adults. I think petty crime should still merit a juvenile charge, but violent crimes should bring adult charges.

  • For repeat offenders and for certain crimes, yes

    Not all juveniles should be charged as such. In some cases, it is appropriate to charge them as adults. For example, in instances where there are multiple offenses over a period of year, and a pattern emerges that shows no changes in the criminal behavior, juveniles could be charged as adults. Certain crimes also may warrant adult charges because of the severity and of the impacts.

  • The legal system should have the option to charge juveniles as adults.

    The legal system should have the option to charge juveniles as adults. I think that if juveniles had a harsher punishment then they would think twice before committing the crimes that get them into trouble in the first place. I think that the courts should be allowed to charge them as adults depending on what they did.

  • Yes it should.

    The legal system should have the option to charge juveniles as adults. If a young person who is under the age of 18 commits a horrible crime, there should be an option to charge them as an adult because they should know what they did is wrong and be punished so.

  • At some age they should have option

    There are many people who commit crimes thinking that they will get away because they are minor. Some people really abuse our legal system and find ways to get around them. If the judges had a option to over ruled some situations, i think it would help the minors crimes such as shoplifting and other crimes as well.

  • The case depends

    If the child is in the age of reason, or has knowledge of the crime committed, or is NOT mentally handicapped, then yes. The child should be tried as an adult BUT have parole and NO death row. If the child is mentally handicapped or does not have knowledge of right or wrong then no, he should not be tried as an adult.

  • No. i do not believe the legal system should have the option to charge juveniles as adults.

    No. i do not believe the legal system should have the option to charge juveniles as adults, because they are not adults. They are children, and they should be treated as such. Children make mistakes, and there should be some leniency for that. Kids deserve a chance to be rehabilitated with correct values.
