When a young person commits murder they face the real possibility of a life sentence in a state run correctional facility. The thing with young people is that sometimes they don’t take into account the consequences of their actions, actions which are in most cases, inspired by the phenomenon known as peer pressure.
There are multiple victims in these cases where minors are found guilty of killing someone.
The main victims are obviously of friends, family, and loved ones of the person who lost their life at the hands of the juvenile offender.
Other victims in the case are the offender themselves being at a young age and running their lives due to a temporary mistake that carries massive penal consequences.
The other victims, who are often not given consideration, are the friends, loved ones, and family members of the offender. These young people also lose their lives. Although they are not murdered, their caged like animals for life terms, and in some cases, they are killed in jail by other inmates.
We believe that if you do the crime do the time. We also champion the death penalty. However, some consideration should be given to minors who make mistakes at a young age.
