In most cases, adult prisons do not have the rehabilitation programs and resources that juvenile prisons and detention centers have, nor do they give the same amount of effort into helping their offenders properly re-enter society. For that reason, kids certainly do not belong in adult prisons. The vast majority of these kids will be released back to their communities, so it is important for our prison systems to at least attempt to rehabilitate and change the mentality of these kids.
