Some people say that minors should not receive life imprisonment even though they commit serious crimes because they have time to be rehabilitated and should get a chance to success in society. However, I think minors who perpetrate serious crimes should not be permitted to go out from prisons due to the following three reasons.
Firstly, as well as adults, minors can understand good and bad so they have the responsibility of what they have done. For the victims of the crime, age of the criminal has nothing to do with the size of the punishment.
Secondly, life imprisonment is a good crime prevention. Recently there are a lot of crimes committed by children. Some of them were serious crimes such as murder and rape. For example, a few years ago, a middle school girl murdered her classmate and beheaded her. In order to prevent these brutalities life imprisonment is needed.
Thirdly, to rehabilitate minors is very difficult. Nowadays, a lot of people who had committed serious crime committed crime again after imprisonment. These criminals said they did not feel rehabilitated so it is really difficult to judge whether they were truly rehabilitated. Maintaining stable society is more valuable than giving them a chance to rejoin society.
For the three reasons mentioned above, I can say with confidence that minors should not be allowed to leave prison if they committed serious crime.
