Which some stores would not make as much as they did when they had it open all night. In “The Trouble with Youth Curfews” it tells us that “many people argue that it does take our freedom away and instead of decreasing crime, it increases it”. It makes a lot of people mad that their freedom is being taken away from them. In addition, the story “America’s Curfew Debate” explains that “Curfews violated parents’ rights to set their own child’s curfew.” That would take a parents’ freedom for parenting their own children. So just because they don’t think kids should have a curfew doesn’t mean they can take a parents’ freedom to parent their
The truth of the matter is it does the opposite and needs to be banned. One reason why Curfew should be eliminated is it targets the wrong people. Experts have said that little criminal activity happens overnight which proves that most of the kids that are being kept inside are not looking to break any laws. In Ferguson and Baltimore police blamed teens for most of the problems but their logs showed that most
It is stated in Broken Windows Theory that if you deal with the small crimes then it will help deter the larger ones. Stop and frisk is supposed to help deter the smaller crimes, however, many believed that there was too much emphasis on Broken Windows and that 's what lead to the stop and frisk procedures getting out of hand. While the city has all but stopped doing stop and frisk, broken windows still remains. It is unclear if Bratton and de Brasio will budge on broken windows. For example, the city will no longer arrest people for publicly possessing under 25 grams of marijuana which is a common broken windows
The poem “On Some Streets” by Sarah Cortez asserts a fact that often goes unnoticed. The free verse’s imagery reveals how many kids, specifically those who live in poverty-stricken neighborhoods, feel about cops and their community’s authority. Kids end up growing up to associate cops as the enemy, almost like you should be afraid of the cops because they are out to get you. But shouldn’t they look up to them and view them as their community’s leaders and protectors? Cops are supposed to make us feel safe, but that doesn’t seem to be the case these days.
Since a juvenile’s brain is still forming, many perform reckless acts due to their limited impulse control, decision-making, and judgement. Juveniles who commit crimes and receive life without parole should be able to have a second chance in society because teens make mistakes due to their impulse control and should not be punished for the rest of their lives for one mistake. Juveniles should be rehabilitated for the actions they do instead of
Jail cells can be a bit solitary and confined, and are intended to be a punishment for adults not teenagers. Creating academies or institutions would be to all of our benefit because recreational instructors, counselors and psychologists would be at their disposal to help them engage into becoming better citizens. The interaction with other juveniles with the same background and experiences will help them mend their problems and become more open to voicing their problems. Closing opinion * Restatement &
Do curfews keep teens out of trouble? Many teens would probably say that having a curfew really doesn’t help with keeping them out of trouble but I would say it does. Many teens have curfew already due to the state not allowing them to be past 11 on a school night. Many of the curfews are for them be home safely. They want the teens to be out of trouble.
In the journal “What works in Reducing Recidivism” I revised how Latessa has been finding the resources of different interventions that can help inmates reduce the drugs and crime. Different evaluations and meta-analysis and cost-benefit studies have improved of the drug courts. Drug courts have produced a modest and significant recidivism for adults with cost savings. As well for juvenile’s drug court are less substantial. A few programs that have I have reviewed to be non effective in reducing recidivism were shaming offenders, drug prevention programs, talking cures and self help programs have actually increased recidivism rates.
Today we are going to be talking about the Youth Criminal Justice Act aka (YCJA) and all of its pros and cons. In social we are deciding about the YCJA and if it is fair and equitable. Pros of the YCJA are that it brings a line to the criminal justice system and it helps youth not get a criminal record. Cons of the YCJA is that it's ineffective and doesn't really stop youth from committing the crime and it makes youth think that they have a free pass or a slap on the wrist. What I think about the YCJA, that it’s a waste of money on taxpayers, government and that it is ineffective because youth still commit the same crimes over and over again.
Teen gangs are dangerous for teens owing to the fact, as it is an easy way for one to get on an inauspicious path to life. Some people say teen gangs are not dangerous seeing that it can help teens who feel helpless and need love. Others consider teen gangs dangerous because it can cause teens to end up dead or in jail. Formerly, examples were given regarding why people think teenage gangs are robust and unfavorable as well as why teenagers get into gangs, moreover the information is going to be provided for one to tell if his or her child is involved in a gang. If one wants to truly find out if his or her child is in a gang, one should pay attention to his or her child 's appearance.
In this day in age, young adults seek a way to be rebellious one of these ways is consuming alcohol illegally. By lowering the legal drinking age, parents could make it less of a “taboo” and could teach their children how to drink alcohol responsibly in public places (www.drinkingage.procon.org). Children under twenty years of age, normally obtain alcohol from their twenty-one through twenty-four year old peers. Young adults who are new to legally purchasing alcoholic substances, often buy alcohol for their underage peers. Some people believe that by lowering the minimum drinking age, that will make alcohol consumption less of an uncommon and interesting thing; therefore, less children will want to consume alcohol.
“Circumspect Police Ends the Drop in Crime?” This debate topic speaks about police being less proactive, because of vitriol, and causing an increase in crime rates. This debate topic is not directly related to the book, Ghettoside, but falls into the same bracket. The debate talks about the police becoming less involved because of denunciation, and rates of crimes increasing because of that. Ghettoside talks about the black-on-black homicide rates going up, one reason, because of the ignorance of the police. So, both the debate and the book have crime rates going up because of the lack of interference of the police department.
It is plausible that if the city put more interest in preventing crime, there would be less depressive kids, or kids committing crimes. We must also put into consideration what happens to the young criminal after they come out of jail. In addition, in the article “Delinquent youth in corrections: Medicaid and reentry into the community,Gupta Ravindra talks about how the juvenile delinquent isn’t given mental help to be readmitted into the community. Thus leads to the assumption that
Sleep is just one of the many factors that can affect safety on the road. Therefore, getting the recommended amount of sleep can save student and adult lives every single day. Some people argue that transportation costs could be high and expensive although this problem is not as important as student and community safety.Some people argue that transportation costs could be high and expensive although this problem is not as important as student and community safety. According to the Centers for Disease Control and prevention, “one third of adults are chronically sleep deprived too” (Hutson 11). If adults are sleep deprived, then think about the number of car accidents that are set to happen.
Most will often wonder if there is actually a future in the juvenile justice system and if so what does it include? Today the juvenile system is known as a weak system that does not actually provide much help for juveniles. Although, this system is effective for a few juveniles, it does not work for them all. The juvenile justice system is the primary system that they use on juveniles who are caught committing crime. The system is put into place in hopes it will deter juveniles away from future crimes to keep their life on track.
