In the eyes of the general public, “once a criminal, always a criminal” but this is an unfair assumption to make. For years the getting tough on crime approach has been very popular among politicians because criminal activity is looked down upon by virtually everyone in society and politicians use this to try and gain support for their party. When you think about getting tough on crime, things like longer harsher sentences are ways to crack down on offenders but there is no real evidence that increasing the penalties for crimes actually works to prevent them from happening. Overall getting tough on crime does not work because harsher sentences do not impact criminals, it costs the tax payers a lot of money and our society today does nothing to prevent crime in the first place. The first reason why getting tough on criminals does not work is because for the most part, they are not deterred You must Login to view the entire essay.

Teenagers should not be issued credit cards as they are unable to fulfill their finanial responsibilities due to the fact they first need a solid education and strong credit history, and that teenagers turn to reckless spending that drains their economic resources. Credit card companies target teenagers as many believe that credits cards teach them about financial responsibility; however, the fact is that credit cards often increase teenagers' likelihood of being financially irresponsible. The teenage reality revolves around behaving irrationally for the sake of maximizing one's personal pleasure. This fact illustrates that teenagers frequently ignore their personal responsibilities as they are too preoccupied with having fun. The recent national economic collapse illustrates that reckless behavior was the cause of many problems due to how a large majority of people failed to pay their debts.

This is wrong; states usually have a preference to a certain party and your vote could sway that preference and alter the distribution of states to candidates (State Political). As American Citizens we have to remember that voting is the only say that we have in government. We can influence the way tax money is spent to the healthcare that we receive. By not voting, each citizen is stating that they do not wish to influence what happens around them and to let things carry out “naturally”. Another issue is the age group of voters.
All humans are equal so we should all have the same rights. You say ‘I don’t even hate the Taliban who shot me’ but that man could have killed you and you wouldn’t have made the speech. People like him are preventing children from getting their education, so surely you should hate the Taliban. The next generation won’t have the same education as us, and they will not be taught about life and respecting others. How can there be peace in the world if people don’t have rights?
The reason why Gun Control is Insignificant in America In the past several years, the topic of gun control has not been brought up since there was nothing to be afraid of in America. Now, due to school shootings and an increase of crime due to guns, the president alongside the government are trying to ban and control guns. The reason why gun control is insignificant in America is that even if guns are taken away from law abiding citizens, others who own guns illegally will still own them, regardless of what the government says.

But the question is whether parents should shave the right to check their teens social media accounts. Teenagers want their privacy, especially from their parents. They want to have conversations and inside jokes that belong only to them and their friends. Teenagers do not want to feel like they are sharing everything in their lives with their parents. This is why I believe parents should not be able to check their teen’s social media accounts.
