Kids Are Kids

Lionel Tate was twelve years old when he beat to death a six year old girl. Is he a man or a boy? They say kids are kids until they commit crimes. In Texas they wanted to put a stop on it so they wanted to change the voting age to 14. Their was many examples with other kids who have committed crimes and have indeed went to jail. For example, Thomas A. Preciado who was fourteen when he stabbed a clerk. They say they're not adults kids should be treated like kids and adults like adults. In my opinion kids are kids. I don’t think they should be go to prison for their whole life. I do think they should pay for what they've done just not so harshly like adults. If they can’t see kids when they haven't committed any crimes why should they see them

    “Kids will be kids,” they said, but they stop believing that statement when a youngster commits heinous actions. I strongly agree with not sentencing juveniles or charging them as adults, they do not have the capacity of reasoning their actions. A brain is not at its full development at a young age. As for an adult, their brain has been through more development and should be mature and conscious of what is that they are doing. We are not considered legal yet until we turn 18; and it is for the same…
