Video Bibliography:
Every day on the news there are reports of crimes across the world, unfortunately, many of them involving youths. The documentary Juvenile Justice highlights four teens who have committed crimes ranging in severity that put them in the position to potentially be tried as adults, despite them being under the age of eighteen. While many people look at youths and feel as though they are young and unable to control themselves and fully understand their actions, some feel that they are quite aware of their behaviors. The teens in this video, like those in the real world, are in a spot where they must take responsibility for their actions. By studying various facets of each individuals case, a distinction can be made on a case by case basis, rather than simply grouping all youths committing various offenses into a category of people who deserve to be tried as adults. Looking at things such as the community’s kids are coming from, their present individual case, and their background or records can help to make the right distinction for punishment that fits a crime.
