I think it depends on the situation.If it's heinous crime (murder,robbery,rape)he should be isolated from society.
If he is not punished he will become more bold in his actions.A person should understand that requital will come for all his acts.And it will serve as an example for other people.
But if a child steals bread because he is hungry than not he but the president of the country should be sent in prison.

If it was up to me, I would send the whole government to prison.

Maybe.It deepens from the kind of crime.For example if a person under 18 kills someone (s)he need to bo in jail,but for any smaller crime I don`t think that they need to go in jail.
If you don`t like me remember it's mind over matter..I don't mind and you don't matter..

I think it shouldn't send the young criminals to the prison.
The prison environment in my country is complicated. They can grow abnormal in that environment.
And after prison time, they can be worse criminals...

I think that they should send young criminals in the special-school ( the school with a special system education and special teachers such as police, patient teacher, volunteers... )



We are all born for love...
