Second Chances to Juveniles

This petition had 906 supporters

The United States of America is the only country that still convicts minors to life in prison without parole. All too often these are kids who have grown up in rough neighborhoods and harsh families. These people were never given a fair chance at a normal childhood, so we want to give them a second chance at adulthood. We want as many people to become aware of this problem in our justice system as possible. The more people that know, the better chance each of these kids will have at a normal life. If possible we also want to incorporate a more rehabilitative way for juveniles to serve their time. That way when they are released they will be prepared to face problems like employment. We want to make a difference because 2.3 million kids are arrested every year. Help us to help them get their lives back.
