Juvenile offenders should be especially considered for rehab because they are young and deserve second chances. They aren’t fully
In society, when the words “sex offender” are brought up, the public usually has the same image in their mind. They usually would see this image of an older male that unceasingly tries to get with children. They public also has a stereotype for this image, that once your sex offender, you’re always a sex offender. Sex offenders are seen as among the most dangerous kinds of offender in terms of both the impact that their wrongdoing has on victims’ lives and because of concerns about their risk of reoffending. However it has recently came to question of whether this perception of dangerousness is supported.

Child abuse crosses a wide line or racial, economic, and cultural situations. Most abuse occurs inside the walls, and in most cases are hidden from the outside world. People go by the saying, “Don’t trust a book by its cover.”, and in these situations, it uses the saying in a great use. Lastly, people believe that, “Abused children always grow up to be abusers.” (Segal, Smith, Siasan) In some cases, it may be true and the cycle has not been broken, but most abused children grow up to have a reason and motivation to break the cycle. Most survivors of abuse actually grow up to help make a difference, break the cycle of abuse, and become excellent parents.
Everyday juveniles are being tried in adult criminal court. Between 1992 and 1997 forty-four states and the District of Colombia passed laws facilitating the transfer of juveniles to the adult system. Senators are steadily weighing tougher standards for juvenile offenders, partly because of massacres like Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. The juvenile system, which started in England, was invented to re-teach values and morals to the young, rehabilitate them, and give them a second chance at a happy life (Glick 25). Juvenile offenders should not be tried as adults because they will suffer physical and psychological damage, endure societal alienation, and possibly reoffend the law.

Diana Penuela Professor Leano English 1A 10 March , 2011 Capital Punishment Currently in California the death penalty is allowed. Capital punishment lowers the value of human life and it is based on a need of revenge. It also sends the wrong message to our kids and society by asserting that violence is the only way out. Teaching that killing is wrong by killing creates a culture of violence because it is only based on getting back at the prisoner by using violence. Capital punishment does not deter crime; instead it increases the murder rate and there is a chance of error.
This period is when one can either make it out to become a great adult in the future or become a total mess all together. This is as a result of the kind of groups that people tend to associate themselves with. Peer pressure is very common among the youth and therefore parents and guardians are required to guide their kids so as not to fall in the wrong group. However, there are children who are not lucky to have stable homes and therefore they get involved in antisocial activities that eventually lead to criminal acts. Some of the children end up being arrested and being sentenced to juvenile prisons.
