With the rise in crimes being committed by juveniles, what are your thoughts on stricter, harsher punishments given to younger children? Should the law be changed to include 15,16 & 17 year olds in with the adults? Do you think it depends on the crime as to what the punishment should be?
If they did make harsher punishments for lesser crimes, do you think it would steer the younger offenders away from 'a life of crime' or would it just mean that there would be a lot more younger people in jail for a lot longer?
