Which comes in, why kids shouldn’t be try as an adult. Most of us teens act pretty much like kids when were still 15-17 years old. In Adam Liptak’s article “Supreme Court to Rule on Executing Young Killers” published in The New York Times quotes “And jurors may not necessarily accept expert testimony concerning recent research showing that the adolescent brain is not fully developed”. Jurors have to accept the fact that teens brains aren’t develop and still may act like little kids. Also the fact that teens are so rough towards one another there brains aren’t thinking on what can happen if there physical towards people violently.
It's also wrong. While young people must be held accountable for serious crimes, the juvenile justice system exists for precisely that purpose. Funneling more youth into the adult system does no good and much harm. Juveniles are not adults, and saying so doesn't make it so. Besides, we don't really mean it: When we try them in criminal court, we do not deem them adults for other purposes, such as voting and drinking.
Jennifer Should minors be tried as adults in the court system? Should teens be tried as adults? People argue that teenagers don't know what they are doing when they commit a crime and are too young to comprehend what is right and wrong. I totally disagree. I am old enough to know that committing a crime is wrong and that if I commit one, I will be punished.
To some extent I agree with the idea that juveniles should be tried as an adult when they commit murder or any other heinous crime resulting in the life of another person; however, I disagree that all juveniles should be tried as adults due to the fact that their brains aren’t fully developed in the sense that the crimes they may commit are out of spontaneous action. Proposition 21 talks a lot about adolescents and whether it is right to try them as adults. In the case of many teens they commit crimes that may or may not be worth the adult punishment.

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
The youths that are being tried in the adult courts should be offered to better themselves as for they are not fully developed at the ages under eighteen. Punishing a teen by taking away their rights for life is not helping the betterment of society.

Herrera, Amy Period: 3, Expo. Comp. December 4, 2011 Should juveniles be tried and sentenced as adults? Juveniles accused of violent crimes shouldn’t be sentenced as adults, because they are incapable of property defending themselves in open court. There are certain facts and examples that make us understand the main point that kids cannot be tried as adults.
The facts clearly indicate that juveniles are incapable of holding their own in a counsel defense due to their lack of knowledge on how to navigate the judicial process. It cannot be denied that the developmental, social, and historical circumstances of adolescents show that their capabilities to work with their defense counsel and comprehend long-term consequences are limited. In addition, those who are incarcerated in adult prison facilities reenter society with more criminal-like features than before they were imprisoned and are more likely to be rearrested for yet another felony mainly because they were not offered rehabilitation during their crucial developmental adolescent years. Juvenile justice should be focused on rehabilitation and reform of character rather than condemning those who are convicted to a life of
They do not have or take the time to learn about life and what is good for them. These teenagers need to change their life around and they need to understand that there is something called “law” that needs to be respected and follow or there could be serious consequences. “The wrongdoing among children has become so outrageous and such a frequent factor in day-to-day news , not only in the United States but also in nearly all parts of the globe, that some people have reached a state of alarm that makes them think the word “juvenile” is inseparably joined to the word “delinquent” (Roucek 1961).
