Should we raise the age of criminal responsibility?

  • It is supported by the pres.

    Young Filipinos would be responsible for their actions.
    Lowering the age of criminal liability is part of the legislative agenda of President Duterte as a means to ensure that the Filipino youth would accept responsibility for their actions and be subjected to government intervention programs, " he said in a statement.
    The latest Pulse Asia Survey showed that 55 percent of Filipinos preferred to keep the minimum age of criminality at 15 years old, Up to which age they would be spared from criminal penalty.

  • To be enlightened

    Here are very many people who is arguing it but somehow there is no really correct answer or even a final answer. My answer is yes, maybe you may be asking why because I am also between the age of 9 - 15.
    9 years old children may be too young to go to jail or to be punished but somehow they need to be responsible with their words and actions. It does not mean that you are a child then you can already do something that is not included in the law. Some lawbreakers uses children to do bad things since the children will not be affected anyway. We should now prevent the cases from which the adults use the children to commit crime. There are some children who at a very young age have criminal record.

  • Research have been made

    Juvenile justice system doesn't say imprisonment automatically.., on further researches my team have done, it aims to lower delinquency acts happening or to completely wipe it out and for those violators there are assigned sanctions depending on their cases. It also aims to correct how minorities should act right and live right.

  • Not to imprison but do some correction...

  • My opinion due to a debate I had in class.

    My class voted within the debate about the fact that the criminal age should be 12-14. We discussed that the age should be hired due to children not getting a sence of maturety untill thet are in highschool (UK). This causes the effect of realisation on the fact that you could be sent to a juvinial center because of offences and that it would be a wake up call. OR we could simply teach young children to learn law in Primary school and teach them about it and the awareness of danger within a community and crimes.

  • Age doesn't matter

    Why should we look at the age why not look at the mental state of the children.We should not blame the society around us cause we our selves chose what we do.Being minor is not an excuse from doing such acts. The reason why we have criminals today is because they don't fear the law so I think it is right to lower the age of liability criminals for that at an early age they'll have the fear to commit such crimes.

  • No. There needs to be punishments for actions.

    Our current age of criminal responsibility can be seen as appropriate because typically children at the age of ten are in the last year of primary school and will then go on to be independent form their parents in secondary school, By having the age as ten it will allow them to fully take of responsibility for their actions and could encourage them to think before they do. It is an appropriate age to be legally responsible because at the age of ten you can choose your religion and open an account at a bank to start saving money, Also at that time of maturity, Parents are more likely to allow their children to use and carry phones. This shows that even the parents are trusting and relying more on their children at this age. Modern technology is developing and does have an impact on today’s children, More and more are creating social media accounts. This pushes the age of responsibility lower, Which makes the age of ten fit the maturity level of the child.

  • Crime is a need

    If there is no poverty in a particular country, Then lower the minimum age of criminal liability and see how crime rates will change. If there is a n equal distribution to every people and there are no corrupt people, Then we will no t come up to this issue. Humans are naturally evil. They will do anything to survive even the most dangerous and risky ways.

  • Discipline, Not imprison.

    Children should not be treated the same way as adults. If we imprison children, They will be labelled as criminals from a young age by our society. We robbing them their chance in our society. They are our hope, Not our enemy. Instead of tackling the fruits, Why not uplift the roots?

  • Life is hard enough

    Life is hard enough and especially we are talking about children within 9-15 yrs of age they are still figuring how the world works in which that itself is hard enough. They too are still figuring out where they belong to the society and were to judge them for that?

  • No it shouldn't

    18 you are legally an adult. In all honesty I even feel like 18 is a little too low to be considered an adult. You've only lived 18 years and most 18 year old are coming out of high school and just figuring their life out. When you're 18, you don't think like a 45 year old who has lived a longer life than you. So why should we raise the age of criminal responsibility?

  • I don't agree with that..

    Kasi it the influence of their family or other people near them. If they did any mistake like stealing why not blame their parents so their parents should discipline them. There's still a chance to reform their behavior because they are not still matured. If they teaches a good behavior they may have a good future.

  • Age of 10 should stay the same.

    I think that by the age of 10 most children understand what is right and wrong.Just because of their age it doesn't mean they do not receive a fair trial .By the age of 10 you can get a criminal record ,children the age of 10 who commit crimes are victims of circumstance.

  • Decrease the age to teach lessons.

    We should lower the age of criminal responsibility. This is because too many crimes are done by juveniles and they need to be taught lessons early on. If we don't they will continue to break laws. If we don't punish a 16-year-old for theft, he will think that there are no repurcussions and continue the behavior.

  • No, the age of criminal responsibility should not be raised.

    18 is plenty old enough to be charged as an adult. By 18 a young adult should have been taught that criminal behavior is a punishable behavior. Term of imprisonment could be lessened since the kids are likely to mature more in the near future. When society has not been able to teach a kid that criminal acts are wrong by age 18, it is necessary to show that there are real consequences.

  • I think the age should be lowered

    For some reason, in today's society we want to allow individuals to get away with crimes based on their age. This is unacceptable. There is no reason why a 13 or 15 year of kid who commits the act of murder, rape or theft should be allowed leniency just because of their age. Being young is not a license to act against the law. And they know it was wrong and most assume because of their age they WILL get away with it.
