sometimes yes, they should be sent cuz. tengeers nowadays are more realize and counciuse if we compare them to tengeers in past.

tengeers nowadays have more technology and watch volince around a day so they realize what's going on so they should pay more responsibles about thier deeds.

I think to respond to this we need some clearer guidlines on what this underage child did.
Lets ask a few uncomftorble questions. Did the teen murder classmates parents, or maybe they raped a child younger then them. I am not taking either side at this point and i could be convinced to go either way.

I work as a youth councelor with teens and I see the real things that happen. So lets just say the teen raped another child. Jail Or Not?

well,
firstly, i want to thank for posting such an important topic here. it is a real growing problem.

children or people below 18 years are commiting crimes increasingly.

for me, i think they must be sent to prison, not because they commit a crime, but to save the society from them.

then they can discuss what should be done to him, like should he stay in the prison or not?

of course based on expert people opinions.

Why only from adults? Camp like Jails are very likely schools for criminals. If there's something they still lack as criminal, then after coming out from there, they're very likely graduated and ready for crime criminals as well. :wink:

It's called juvenile jail where they'd be raped by jail guards just like any other kinda jails.
