I think punishment of young criminals plays a key role in reducing crime rates.Knowing that there is a swift action against committing crimes,makes them to think carefully before engaging themselves in any unlawful act .on the other hands it is not the only solution governments should rise the awareness of youngsters through media and social services.

I believe the young people who commit the crime , themselves are people who has been suffer or may have been abused by their guardian .
Another reason that may have effect on the criminals related to the gens.
So they are not the only people who should be blamed for that. By considering these parameters
the society should provide a way to keep them in line.
so instead of prison we should provide correction center that they give them proper education to help them to come back to the society.

Juvenile justice must improve to a more sensible implantation, where nowadays crime was acted by a child or teenager. Here in our country ‘Philippines’ common crime suspect was a child. The laws here are always siding on them regardless of what heinous crime they’ve done. We know that giving them a second chance is a moral act, but if you will check the crime tally from the previous year, and compare it today- it’s shocking to know that it increases more.

I’m not saying that punishing a child like what they normally did to an older or more mature (a person who knows what they’re doing), are exactly what our government do to any crime offender regardless on their age. However, I still see some changes that our government did these past few years of the Aquino regimen. I hope that they will come up with a refurbished law that will teach these child to learn what they’ve have done.

i think is good idea send them to prison, they have to paid the bad actions that they do,or maybe it's better to put them in rehabilitation center.
they can do social works or something like this.
