Morally yes, but you are right society needs to be protected. I don't believe their should be no consequences for the actions of a 15 year old. The fact that a 15 year olds brain is not developed, which is why they are committing their violent or destructive acts, makes little difference to the fact that in their current state of development they are a potential threat to people. In those instances counseling, and possibly(in extreme cases like proclivities to violence) incarceration are justified. I just believe that medical, psychological, and scientific evidence should be used to determine when those people may have developed beyond those tendencies(which is unquestionably possible). I also think that if you told me potential punishments for juvenile crimes should be more stringent in certain circumstances, I would agree. However, a 14 year old should not be held accountable for the rest of their lives for the things they did as a child, when they were very different people than the person they will eventually develop into. Trying children as adults, makes sure those consequences stay in place, because adult records are not wiped away after a person becomes an adult, where as juvenile records ARE.
