Some people think that teenagers who commit crimes should be treated the same way as adult criminals. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

There is an ongoing debate on punishing teenagers the same way like how adults are punished for their crimes.
Therefore
, I strongly disagree
to
Suggestion
with
this
statement that teenagers should be punished in the same manner. In
this
essay I will discuss why I don’t agree to the above statement. Many people think that punishment should be same for all.
For example
, treating young children and adult criminals in the same manner whether it is a minor or major
crime
.
Moreover
, it is a bad idea to treat people the same way.
However
, if one has done a minor
crime
like stealing something from a shop, he can be advised not to do in the future rather than punishing him. Or one can just threaten him.
Thus
, it will make him feel that what he has done is wrong and he will not repeat that in future.
On the other hand
, it is always the best idea to punish adult criminals who have committed a
crime
like murder. These people should not only be punished
instead
they should be treated with the lethal injection.
For instance
, in China there is a law that whoever commits a major
crime
like murdering someone he should be given a lethal injection.
Therefore
, the crimes will be limited in the fear of lethal injection. To conclude, I strongly disagree that young children should be given the same punishment because they are teenagers and if people make them understand in a pleasant manner they will not commit any
crime
in the future. Whereas in the case of adult criminal it is the opposite, meaning they should be severely punished.
