A crime is a crime, whether it is done intentionally or accidentally it still is a crime. Juvenile crimes have been presented always. There has been a lot of controversy about a Juvenile committing a server crime should suffer life sentenced in prison. Age shouldn’t be a factor when a crime is committed, a crime has been done and there must be consequences to take. Life sentenced is appropriate based on Mental Instability, Age and Damage that person could have caused to family, friends and loved ones. Mental Instability: Mental Instability can be present in a crime.
Whether that person has brain damage or has suffered many traumatic situations growing up, shouldn’t impede the reduction of life sentenced. Crime has been committed if Mental problems are involved the best decision should be putting in that person in a Mental Instability facility for treatment. That person shouldn’t be set free or reduced punishment Just cause of that factor. It puts in danger the society that we live in. Age: Age shouldn’t be a factor of reduction of punishment. Whether a person is 13 years of age and has committed a serve crime isn’t different than a 50 year old committing the name crime.
Damage has been done to the society and the safety of people. However; people state that a 13 year-old hasn’t developed fully to know what’s right to wrong. But does that also apply to a 50 year old? They also have committed the same crime. Should there punishment also be reduced because they haven’t fully matured? It is a pretty absurd statement. Age shouldn’t reduce the punishment of a Juvenile. A crime has been committed and there are punishments for those actions. Damage to family, friends and Loved ones. Most of the people who encountered situations in where a Juvenile has committed a rime think they shouldn’t be sentenced to life.
But that person who simply reads articles or see’s it on the news, don’t know how the family feels about losing one of their loved ones. The damage that person has caused to a family member is something that can not be explained unless someone has suffered something similar. Life sentence is appropriate for the situation and doesn’t violate the 8th Amendment of the United States Constitution. Conclusion: Life sentence to a Juvenile is appropriate when he/she has taken a persons life away. Jail maybe can change that persons way of viewing life.
But not the way how the society view him. People may say that a few years in Jail is the correct, that it will Juvenile Justice: I agree on life sentence. By Vandalizing criminal. It would put in danger the society whether that person has changed or still remains the same we shall never know. A person wants the best for themselves and having an ex-criminal as there neighbors isn’t the right path, the insecurity the shall face.
