The youth gang individuals in Las Cruces is identified with reinforcers, notwithstanding to pro-gang attitudes, lawbreaking peers, and sequential age. In, Phoenix, being older, male, and having both pro-gang attitudes and lawbreaking peers is connected with gang membership, notwithstanding, those who relate gangs with punishers tend not to be in gangs. In addition, the present concentrate unmistakably supports the consideration of hypothesis grounded variables. The bits of knowledge increased about the one of a kind contrasts between the two group's gang issues originated from the social learning
Although, it could lead to alcohol, drugs and gangs, curfews won’t impede teen from getting in trouble. According to the article , it explains that, “Curfews don’t lower teen crime. Curfews don’t teens from getting into trouble. Teens who want to perpetrate a crime won’t let a curfew stop them.” Because not all teens listen, not all teens will accept a curfew. The Greasers did not have a curfew.On the other hand, not having a curfew could lead into drugs, and gangs.
Why should teen felons get to spend their jail time in juvenile detention centers for committing the same crimes as adults? In today’s world, teens are increasingly committing violent crimes and being put in juvenile detention centers. Teens need to be tried as adults because it helps to bring justice to families of victims, and it also teaches the teens accountability. Charging teens as adults will also help reduce crime in the United States. Although many people feel that teens should not be given severe punishments because they are immature and innocent, they have not considered the problem teens are creating by committing these crimes..
This blatant lack of social control was used as a tool which encouraged youths to establish their own means of social order, they did this by either forming new gangs or joining existing gangs. The research which was done by Frederic Thrasher was substantially influenced most of the theories which emerged after it related to gangs. Albert Cohen, 1955 theorised that the emergence of gangs was directed to a subculture which had been created by the lower socioeconomic youths, and this was a result of their exclusion from mainstream middle-class culture. These youths noticed that they were unable to obtain the status of middle-class and created a gang culture that offered them an alternative source if
Hinton’s novel The Outsiders are to blame for the problems that were faced by the community that surrounds them. This can be said as the Greasers could have avoided the Socs in the first place, avoiding the problems faced in, and by the community. The gang of teenagers could have also faced their problems instead of running away from them, solving all the problems that they encountered and preventing new ones from emerging. They are also the ones to blame for the deaths that occur in the novel, and if they had not occurred, there would not have been as much tension that was faced that separated the rival gangs (the Greasers and Socs). In the end, the Greasers should be held responsible for the quarrels that occur throughout the
Violent crimes are violations of the criminal law that requires violence against one person to another, which the extent of minor to major impact on society of criminal jurisprudence that has shifted from the past to today. There are two differences in the violence and crime. Crime can be any type of rape and homicide, but in fact where does the sense of violence come from as today. In the past nothing wasn’t homicide or violence, it was all about the different laws in different groups that were created and to be punished in the way of hate, the sense of integration or separation in the past. Today crime is in any type of way, but as a law enforcement, what makes a violent crime.
At that time, the crime rate in Las Vegas was low not because the police was being efficient, but because no one dared to mess with the mob. The film acknowledges the gangster culture of Las Vegas and mocks the local police for their lack of ability to stop real
The environmental stress is when parents condone delinquent behavior and neighborhoods are also unstable giving rise to gang recruitment and conflict. (Alder, Laufer, & Mueller, 2013, p. 144). However, evidence shows that gang behavior is more widespread than confined to the lower-class neighborhoods and is often supervised and controlled by adult organized crime where gang leader operate both legal and illegal businesses (Alder, Laufer, & Mueller, 2013, p. 144). Therefore, researchers use the subculture theory of violence to explain criminal behavior. This theory recognizes that fact that subcultures are an influence, but suggest these subcultures do not view antisocial behavior negatively and pass these values down to other
Gang violence is nothing someone should play around with because you can get killed or even in trouble with the law for just associating with them. People have a mind set that gangs are there for protection and it's really not. Gangs will leave you in two places grave or in jail. Learning about gangs is essential to understanding history and how to stay away.In order to talk about what a gang is and why you should stay away you should know what it is.A gang is a group of 3 or more individuals in a group (“What is a gang?”). Sometimes you might hear some people call a gang a set but it means all the same.
Also other police methods are used such as increase of name checks. Media and the police have displayed common interests as the both share a symbolic relationship as media are reliant on the police to gain information and police use media to illustrate certain images. The media tend to provide dramatic images of crime and a defensive image of police and their activities. Cohen argues the media “exaggerated attention, exaggerated events, distortion, and stereotyping”, in other word; the media over exaggerate the event and create a greater amount of panic in the beginning of the moral panics. On the other hand, Thornton argues that objectives of moral panics like folk devils are not typically the passive victims of the media.
Also, majority of the crime victims do not report their experiences or situations to law enforcement agencies participating in the UCR program, leading the data to be flawed with incidences (number of crimes committed) and the prevalence (number of offenders) of crime (jblearning p 63). Not reporting crime to the police, caused disparity between the number of crimes committed and the number of crimes reported to the police which calls into question the reliability of UCR data (jblearning p 63). In regards to the hierarchy rule: single crime incident in which multiple offenses are committed, only the most serious offense is reported. (Arson is the only exception; it is always reported to the FBI.) For example, if an offender robs and murders a victim, only the murder will be reported.
In addition, despite laws in place to restrict the use of technology, such as cell phones, while driving has not offered enough of a deterrent to stop this activity according to the Highway Loss Data Institute and the number of insurance collision claims. Even though adolescents are capable of fully understanding the risks involved in texting while driving, it doesn’t seem to be enough for them to stop engaging in this risky activity. Research has suggested another approach that seems to be more effective than ones tried in the past. Adolescents seem to respond more effectively with statistics shared that reflect the majority of their group not participating in risky behavior. In other words, opposed to focusing on the percentage of teens that engage in texting and talking on the phone while driving, there is a more positive response to campaigns focusing on the majority of adolescents that don’t participate in these activities.
It causes one to question what the next move is for these juveniles. When put into this situation, many juveniles turn to the men and women who they know will give them the security they need: gangs. While many would argue that this is not the first avenue for security they would take, it is noted that these youths grow up in communities where the subcultures are vastly different than that of other communities. For example, the police may not be seen as protectors of the neighborhood, rather an arm of the government that wishes to oppress. Many would agree that the social disorganization theory gives a better understanding as to why juveniles transition into gangs.
These attributes can be something that a person has no control over, such as their race or socio-economic background. Criminalization is not often based on laws, but instead revolves around customs that others have been understood as good or bad, which can later lead to laws. This idea consists of the reinterpretation of everyday actions or ideas and vilifying them (Merry 14 -15). In the cases of children there exists the idea that a child who commits a violent and heinous crime will only become more violent and will continue to commit crimes. Therefore, once a despicable act has been committed by a child he or she becomes labeled as a violent criminal.
