Juveniles Rehabilitate or Punish 3 To rehabilitate or to punish that is the question at hand when dealing with the juvenile justice system. I choose to rehabilitate the juveniles. If we do not rehabilitate them then we will have no future. The young people today are the future of tomorrow. To rehabilitate a juvenile delinquent means that law enforcement will have one less person to have to worry about causing trouble. The court processes may take a little longer. This is because the court will have to investigate a little more into the juvenile’s life. This will give them a better understanding of the why behind the juvenile’s actions. Thus allowing the court to decide what action they should take to help rehabilitate the juvenile. Depending on the severity the court may choose probation supervised or unsupervised, imprisonment in a juvenile penitentiary, community service, or even an intervention program. So juveniles that are habitual offenders will receive the more sever juvenile penitentiary, or even become eligible to be trialed as an adult. If we as a society will continuously punish the juvenile delinquents they are not learning anything at all. This just leads to repeated offending because they have learned nothing from their actions except they will be able to get a three course meal and a roof over their head. This really makes juvenile prison sound really nice to those juveniles that commit crimes because of being poor and not possessing enough food. In addition to punishing the juveniles, you are also punishing society and the law enforcement. One punished juvenile will continue to cause more chaos and mayhem than 10 rehabilitated juveniles. This punishment design will cause for more taxpayers money to be used for continues court processes that will be used over and over again on the same juvenile. Then you must multiply these same actions by the amount of juvenile delinquent in your area. To me this is not a very good plan to use.
