  • Within limits it is

    Juvenile offenders should be punished for their crimes - an entire court system exists purely in order to do this, and they can't simply be released after committing any crime. Still, the punishments in many countries are far too harsh, and the focus is too set on punitive measures, rather than rehabilitation.

  • Someone has to teach them.

    There is nothing wrong with punishing juvenile offenders. If the juveniles parents are not going to raise them someone else is forced to do so. All too often that someone else is the juvenile court system. Children need to be taught right from wrong. The Bible tells us that if we spare the rod we will spoil the child. All children need discipline. If this doesn't happen at home it has to happen somewhere else.
