Are you pro death penalty for juveniles? If so, why?
Personally, I am for it, if the criminal has reached the age of accountability. Which can be determined by extensive studies from multiple Psychologists and Criminalogists and so forth. The age of accountability can be at any age. I was 4 when i learned that killing people and doing wrong to others is a terrible thing to do and shouldn't be done. Some are 7, 13, 18, and so forth. There is no set age of accountability.
There shouldn't be a death penaly for anything - or anybody - anywhere.
Courts make mistakes - the wrong people get convicted.
When you execute an innocent man/woman you become a murderer.
no i don't. we have to draw the line somewhere and i draw it at youth. i made a lot of mistakes as a kid that i would never make as an adult though even then i new they were wrong. i also don't agree with putting juveniles in prison for life, they can chage a lot easier then an adult. kids do things many times without thought of the outcome because life hasn't truly showed them what it has to offer.
