Question description

n Chapter 2 of the text, our author summarizes five U.S. Supreme Court Cases:

  1. Kent v. United States (1966)
  2. re Gault (1967)
  3. re Winship (1970)
  4. McKeiver v. Pennsylvania (1971)
  5. Breed v. Jones (1975)

These five cases show differences and similarities between the adult and juvenile justice systems. Why is it necessary to have different justice systems when looking at people who commit crimes? How do these cases affect how the law is applied to juveniles? Are there other differences between the adult and juvenile justice systems that would indicate juveniles have modified or more restricted rights when dealing with the juvenile justice system?

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7 and continue to support your arguments with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources. Review your classmates’ opinions of the effects these U.S. Supreme Court cases on the juvenile justice systems. In your response posts, discuss how the social justice principles of equality, solidarity, and human rights are applied to juveniles in an effort to build a more just society.
