because a kid breaking the rules can still cost thousands of dollars (how much does a police response to a school for instance cost?) and possibly cost the kid their life. if they dont understand absolutely everything or make one wrong decision the police respond and could cause someone to be shot by the police. someone over 18 is at least (legally) deemed to be responsible enough to handle themselves in situations knowing that but under 18 is not.
