Therefore, teens literally cannot make decisions as well outside of the realm of emotion, and their actions aren't as rational. Given this, I think that there should be different punishments - after all, See More▼

I suppose, depending on the crime.
If its a murderer, or rape, yes of course.
Otherwise, no.
