In America many kids play violent role playing games like cops and robbers and don 't think anything of it. But recently in the news there has been a debate if kids should be allowed to play these so called games. Many people think that kids should be allowed to play theses games because they are just games and all in fun. However, many people including myself think that kids should not play violent role playing games because kids get the idea that life is just a game and killing someone is also. In the story High jinks Shoot-out we meet teens readying up for the annuel water gun Shootout where kids go around and dispatch there enemies so that they can win the $300 in the winners pot.However in order to achieve the victory kids must do very dangerous and stupid things.For example we learn that a kid went to an airport to kill a target.“In 2007, Jake Protell, a freshman, distinguished himself by ferreting out the itinerary of a field trip that two targets were taking to Tel Aviv.
He committed the crime and was able to get away with it because the store policy says that they cannot chase them. Although differential association can be seen in high schools it can also be seen through different groups of adults because it based on who they associate themselves with and if they involve themselves in criminal activity. Differential association theory plays a huge role in high schools because students learn to commit crimes due to the association of those around them and can influence their behaviors (Siegel,
Therefore, once a despicable act has been committed by a child he or she becomes labeled as a violent criminal. This concept is known as the superpredator; that violent youths criminals, mini adults who should be doing the adult time for committing adult crimes (Bourgeois 150). This lead to the common idea that violent children are no exception to the law and should actually be detained as soon as possible to prevent further crimes. Since this term was brought into use it has proven to be widely inaccurate as there exists no evidence that young children involved in violent crimes became more frequent or more violent than their counterparts. The idea of superpredators thoroughly criminalizes children who have committed heinous acts because the children become defined by their crime leading many to believe that no matter the age,
This year, Georgia has passed a law that a person over twenty-one can carry a gun on campus. The law also prohibit them to bring it to a school event or in the dorms. Not everybody going to be happy about Georgia decision Carry a gun around thousands of people is very threating because, we don’t know what that person is capable of. This law can either be the solver of all gun violence on campus or it can create more violence on school campus. In the past year, there have been shooting on college campus.
Circuit training would be used for a netballer because it is a very good way of developing and improving their fitness and it also combines both continuous and resistance training. A netballer needs this to keep up their fitness and to gain new skills to use during a game. A circuit would be that you start of doing heel flicks diagonally from one corner to the other corner; you heels are up to your bum. Then do side-steps, you face the base line and run along the line without your feet touching. Then do star jumps which are just jumping up in the air and spreading
Because of the bullies and the kids who are getting bullied are getting involved in violent behaviors Even being out of school bullying still happens. “The greatest risk for engaging in violence related acts was found among boys who bullied others when they were away from school”. (Brodyjan,2). During break or the weekends kids still get bullied. That’s not a surprise, but who would’ve thought that the parents would teach them right from wrong.
A writer for The Economist by the name of Estudillo Mary Onelia had a very strong opinion on this topic. Onella stated, “Trying minors as adults will toughen the system and hold someone responsible. Minors must be fully culpable for their behavior if we are to deter future delinquents from committing violent crimes,” however; this is not the case. Placing a juvenile in prison is not teaching them how to be lawful adults it is locking them up in a building where they are exposed to older criminals whom will not set them on a successful
Whenever someone turns on the TV in our society, that person hears about a teenager assaulting another person at school, or vandalising a public monument or important building. Therefore, youth in our society are just as dangerous as youth in Fahrenheit 451. I personally believe that resolving issues with violence will never achieve anything. Fights should be played out with words, not fists. That is why I respect lawyers and the legal system very much.
This would inform parents on how they can help their child who has been roped into the dangerous life in a gang. According to Rob White, most parents who suspect their child of being in a gang do not have time to help, programs that would directly help the youth in gangs would be extremely beneficial because it could give a child a sense of family that they yearn for (Indigenous youth and gangs as family). Creating and starting these programs would be hard work but well worth it in the long run if it can help and save children from getting caught up in the dangerous life of a
“Imprisoning kids to ‘teach them a lesson’ is an almost surefire way of teaching them how to be more criminal” (Rozzell). In an effort to reduce juvenile crime, some states passed harsher legislation on juvenile crime, but in many cases, states did not get what they wished for. Criminologists analyzed the effects of New York’s Juvenile Offender Law, which lowered the age a minor could be tried as an adult in certain circumstances. Compared to a control group in Philadelphia, there was no effect on the levels of serious juvenile crime. When Idaho passed legislation in 1981 that minors be tried as adults for serious crimes, researchers found that juvenile offenses actually went up.
