I feel that juveniles should be tried as adults for the crimes they do for 4 simple reasons, reason one if you can do the crime then you should face the time that comes with doing the crime. Juveniles are not stupid they know what they are doing before they are doing it, if there mind is made up then they are going to do the crime. People are smarter then what you know with how fast the world is involving there are many things that juveniles can do to help them get away with crime especially with the help of modern technology. If a juvenile is his or her right mind and know what they are doing is wrong then by all means they should be punished as an adult. If the juvenile is pleading insanity then they should be evaluated to see if it true but if the test comes back clear then they deserve the punishment that an adult would get (debate.org, N.D).
juveniles act on emotions or wants, without thinking their actions through completely. Oftentimes, juveniles are being influenced by an adult in their life. Courts and judges should look at who made the juvenile the way they are, and the living environment that the juvenile is from. It should not be fair that a 17 year old should be treated differently then an 18 year old, if they are a repeat offender. No matter the crime or the brutality of the crime, they should still know that wont be okay in the real world so why not be made aware from an early
An adult knows what are the risks, and what is going to be like; when they make their decisions, but a child does what comes first to his/her mind, and they don’t think things over. “Research suggests that adolescents squeezed through the adult system are more likely to come out as violent career criminals than similar kids handled
Where specific protections exist for juvenile offenders such as suppression of an offender's name or picture or a closed courtroom where the proceedings are not made public, these protections may be waived. Trial as an adult is a situation when a juvenile offender is tried as if he/she were an adult. Where specific protections exist for juvenile offenders such as suppression of an offender's name or picture or a closed courtroom where the proceedings are not made public, these protections may be waived. There are several differences between juvenile court and criminal court in the United States. One of the most significant differences is the intent of the two systems; the focus of the juvenile justice system is on rehabilitation and future reintegration, while the goal of the criminal justice system is punishment and deterrence of future crime.
Youth that hang around people their age that are making bad choices and not abiding the law will involve in crimes with friends who are doing the same. Their environment can cause them to act out in negative ways, the lack of positive adults, abuse and neglect, and too much idle time and not enough planned activities. Children should not be tried as adults. “The United States Supreme Court has ruled that there are limitations on the punishment juveniles can receive even when they are tried in adult court. The law considers youth crimes to be less culpable than adult, therefore juvenile punishment should not be as severe as those available for adults, even for the exact same crime.” The punishment of a 14 year old, Arkansas teenager who wasn’t the triggerman at a video rental store that he and his robbed was fair.

Children who commit murder should not be tried as adults A child does not have the advantages that an adult does therefore a child should not suffer the punishment that an adult does. A child is not able to vote, buy property, and is not permitted many of the other privileges that an adult has. To make a child suffer the punishment that an adult suffers is a double standard against children. Unfortunately, it is true that some children have committed murder. However, to put a child on trial as an adult only furthers the crime.
The issue of youth justice evolved into the concept conferencing, which can be considered as an option if a young person has committed an offence that is covered by the Young Offenders Act 1997 (cwlth), but is too serious to be dealt with by way of police warning or formal police caution. The point of this is to keep young offenders out of the criminal justice system and rehabilitate them instead of sending them to juvenile detention for periods at a time. (b) Explain the problems in the current criminal justice system with reference to that issue The main problems in the current criminal justice system can be seen as: • the failure to address social and economic dimensions of juvenile crime • inadequate legal frameworks • high level of violence and abuse from police The failure to address the dimensions of juvenile crime arose due to a number of reasons, but common to a few key points. Firstly, in reference to the social issues, the general public and local communities did not feel as though the juvenile offender really understood how the crime they committed impacted on everyone; including the
