Furthermore, excluding young offenders from society is denying them the opportunity to meet positive role models and mentors. . With other trouble people is simply perpetrating the problem it is teaching them bad behaviour and excluding them from all of the positives influences they would experience in normal society they need to be able to experience different things and develop positive goals because if they have a sense of purpose they will become better people in the future.

In most juvenile homicide cases, they are automatically put into the adult justice system for committing the adult-like crime. Some of these children are receiving punishments such as life in prison, even life in prison without parole. Although, the kids may have committed the “adult” crime it is unethical for youths to be tried as adults. Youths should not be tried as adults because they are too young to understand the adult criminal court and could receive cruelty from the state penitentiaries. Also, instead of sending the juveniles
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
preventative detention and continued detention where sex offenders under the "Serious Sex Offenders Act 2006 (NSW) could be held in custody after their sentence has been served - as well as 2 yrs monitoring of sex offenders under the Sex Offenders Registration Act -then I concluded with young offenders - how whilst the community does push for rehabilitation/welf Here is one of the most difficult places for law enforcement to balance the opposing goals of the "best interests of the community" vs. the "rights and freedoms of the individual." The community wants the police to PREVENT crime -- to stop criminals before they get a chance to do harm -- and not just wait around for a crime to take place and then try to solve it. (Even if they do solve it, it would still be better if it had never happened.) So inner-city cops "stop and frisk" bad-looking kids, suspicious characters, etc. 1) If the search of the suspects reveals nothing (no weapons, drugs, burglary tools, stolen goods, etc.
Unit 12 – Crime and Effects on Society Assignment 2 P4 - Describe the effects crime has on communities and the individual • Teenagers – Teenagers are affected by crime in different ways, they can be involved in fights and they may be targeted by looking at a criminal in a wrong way. The main way they will be affected by crime is that they could be judged by other generations for being criminals, giving teenagers a bad name. As a result of this, they may pick up on anti-social behaviour as they don’t think it is fair, or to fit in with the other trouble makers. • Children – Children are affected by crime negatively as they are very easily into manipulating, they can be brought up to be a criminal just from living next to one.

Although politicians claim that the public demands tough policies, moral panics tend to dissipate when the crisis passes. Many around the country would argue because of more serious crimes committed by adults has fashioned an umbrella on the juvenile system which imposes robust crimes for the juvenile themselves. Now when a juvenile has committed a crime, the next step is the procedures of handling the juvenile physically and mental status. Following the arrest of a juvenile offender, a law enforcement officer has the discretion to release the juvenile to his or her parents, or take the offender to juvenile
As such, the best way to deal with them is through rehabilitation rather than punishment. The Time U.S magazine ran an article in 2001 titled, “Should the Law Treat Kids and Adults Differently?” Reasons why they should not treat kids and adults differently stated by the article were: • The juvenile prison system can help kids turn their lives around; rehabilitation gives kids a second chance. • Children don’t have the intellectual or moral capacity to understand the consequences of their actions. • Children should be able to get deadly weapons in the first place. Adults who provide kids with guns used in violent crimes should be held accountable.
The Purity Knight case will be used as part of that section. Everyone knows the saying, “one picture is worth a thousand words” is true with crime scene photography.
