No Prison for Children: They see, they learn


Abstract

 

The government of India wants to send minors between the age of 16 - 18 to prison for committing heinous crimes but the issue is far more complex than that. Many of these children are acting out due to other social injustices that the government is not bothering to address. Plus there are only approximately 3000 children who fall into this bracket, and prison is 100% likely to turn them into hardened criminals rather than reform them. Does this all add up to you? You do the math.
