The Scottish Sentencing Council says under-25s should not be jailed because their brains are not fully mature. Do you agree?

    If under 25s are 'immature' and unfit to treated adults, are we likely to see the Scottish Government raise the age of becoming an adult in Scotland? Stop them voting (noting that they're promoting dropping this to 16), buying alcohol, driving? Not a chance! With rare exception these 'adults' know right from wrong and should take the consequences of their actions. Progressive policy or a cynical ploy to reduce the prison population.
