Transcript of why kids shouldn't be tried as adults

Children in adult prisons are:
5x as likely to be sexually assaulted
2x as likely to be beaten by staff
50% more likely to be attacked with a weapon
8x as likely to commit suicide than children in juvenile facillities

This brings up the question, Why should children be treated as adults when they make a mistake?
all of these reason create the perfect argument as to why children under 18 should be tried as what they are: children. while their brains are still developing and growing is the best time to turn their life around.
