Should we send violent teens to the army?

Think about it, most teens nowadays get a buzz from striking fear into innocent people, they have some1 so badly hurt that they could die, the teen doesnt feel remorce.. he feels proud!! but i think we should ship them off and then they can kill as much people as they want. what do you think?

I think that this is a BAD idea. The purpose of the military, at least in the U.S., is to protect the country, not to be able to kill as many people as they can without feeling remorse. The men and women serving in the U.S. military are proudly serving the country and protecting freedom; they are not hateful killers. Random killing, murder, and torture are severely penalized under military law, which is much stricter than civilian law. Hateful teenagers that hurt people and don't feel remorse have mental health issues that need to be addressed; this is not normal behavior for a teenager. These kids will grow up to be antisocial and will live in and out of prisons unless they get the help that they need.
