In addition to Azkhaban Prison (as someone mentioned), the entire Harry Potter world, where children are given deadly weapons through which they focus super powers. There appears to be no police force of much consequence, or army. In fact it appears that the world's entire security force is dependent on one old man.
Wouldn't the alternative be worse? A world where super powered children cannot control those superpowers? There is a police force, the Aurors, though small in number are well trained and powerful. And who needs an army when you have a society of super powered people?
Because not all of the people with super powers are well intentioned and also because many of them are...children.
We have no superpowers and not all of us have good intentions, even children.
