Coming back to the punishment for young offenders committing adult crimes. My friend from freeware email marketing software group (I know that it sounds strange, so maybe in short: in email marketing company) showed me another point of view. So the most important drawback is that young offenders are still children and it would be a huge wastage of their life. Equally important is that those people are immature to defend themselves. Moreover, due to this, they have a right to make mistakes because they often act of the spur of the moment. Finally, treating them like adults may come as a shock to them. In consequence, such a mentally and emotionally immature person can even take his own life. To sum up, punishing the young like adults has both good and bad sites. On the whole, it can be a real help to them (rehabilitation) but also can do harm. Nevertheless, this decision should be made for our all sake. Criminals should not be treated differently only because they are younger.
