I was thirteen years old and in middle school when I committed my very first and last felony Our class went on a field trip to the Mall Of Mainland In Texas City There I would do something I would regret Being just about the only kid whos parents only gave him five dollars to spend at the mall and while everyone else had at least over twenty dollars was kind of embarrassing I decided to walk into the nearest foot locker and steal a pair of two hundred dollar Jordans I thought that if I went on the school bus with those high priced Jordans then I would seem rich and cool I stuffed the shoes in my batman jacket and kept checking my surroundings But as soon as I reached the exit of the store I was caught by mall security Soon I was sent home and punished by my parents I was very fortunate to receive that sort of punishment then the ones that children face today It seems that adolescents and wheatear or not to trial them as adults is a growing issue in the world today From minor cases such as shoplifting To even major cases such as Jordon Brown who took the life of his father fianc According to an online article by CNN Jordon only eleven years old who was upset with his fathers pregnant fianc Shot and killed her We have to stop and think should adolescents be tried as adults Should we as adults lock up those whose brains are not yet fully developed to make the right decision Or should we find an alternative way to punish them and use whatever crime they did as an example and hopefully a life lesson that they can learn off of If we just sentence them to life in prison without the possibly of parole or death would that not be simply saying that we give up
