Do you believe youth offenders of the law should be treated the same as adults? Why?


All I'm asking is do you believe the government should be more soft when dealing with youth offenders?

    Here in Canada, the Youth Criminal Justice Act provides a softer punishment to youth, depending on the crime and past convictions. If it's a first time serious offense, they get a punishment such a community service and get counselling.

    I want to clarify my answer. I must have read the question incorrectly the 1st time. I believe we have a responsibility to help our youth be well and make better choices, regardless of the crime they committed. Children learn what they live.

    Your idea of how youth should be treated is perfect. I agree with you on every aspect of this.
