The publication by Christina M. Gaudio is critical of the War on Drugs and focuses on its effects on juveniles. She takes time to outline the issues that are present with our current system, and specifically how the system is particularly unjust to juveniles. Gaudio details how the juvenile justice system operates state and federally, then she gives a brief history of the Drug War, the Drug Wars effect on Juveniles, its overall effectiveness, and possible solutions to what she sees as the problem. The Drug War is extremely costly to the taxpayer and is in many respects failing.
When the word “domestic abuse” is put forward, people may think it is far from their lives. However, it happens around each individual and it is closer than they think. Domestic abuse often escalates from threats and verbal abuse to violence. And while physical injury may be the most obvious danger, the emotional and psychological consequences of domestic abuse are also severe. (Smith and Segal 2)
Hey Aurelo, great work on explaining the Miami-Dade Correctional Department and their boot-camp program. I didn 't know that most boot-camp programs are juvenile convicts around the ages of 14 to 24. I can imagine that this program can help these juveniles since they bring professionals to speak with them, as far as bringing in a criminal defense attorney who was once arrested and even went to the boot camp program. It 's shows that their are people want to help these juveniles in improving their life and plan them a better future. Like your example with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson show and how he visits them and talk about his trouble pass.
Animal abuse is a big part in determining a psychopath, even though not all psychopaths become serial killers, or even commit crimes. If a psychopath does, in fact, turn out to be a serial killer, when the FBI profiles them, one of the main things that they look for is people who abused animals when they were younger or, people who still abuse animals today. They do this because animal abuse is one of the most common things that serial killers share in common. Also, most psychopaths have this in common. More than half of serial killers, or psychopaths, abuse animals (Meyer 9).

Introduction and Rationale Teens who do not take part in afterschool programs are just about three times more likely to skip classes than teens who do participate in afterschool programs. They are also three times more likely to use marijuana or other drugs, and are more likely to drink, smoke and engage in sexual activity. (YMCA of the USA, 2001) After-school programs assist in the process of shutting down the “Prime Time for Juvenile Crime.” When the school bell rings, turning millions of children and teens out onto the streets, violence and juvenile crime suddenly soars. In California, 2 pm to 6 pm are the peak hours on school days for such crime and the peak hours for kids to become victims of violence.
The public agrees 72 percent of adults think that lowering the drinking age would make alcohol more accessible to kids, and nearly half think that it would increase binge drinking among teens. Lowering the drinking age would worsen the problems of underage and binge drinking. Advocates often point out that if a young adult is old enough to go to war and vote, he should have the power to imbibe alcoholic beverages. Does society think we should lower or higher the drinking age? Research indicates that when the minimum legal drinking age is 21, people under age 21 drink less overall and continue to do so through their early 20s.
Nursing Home Abuse Not Just a Staffing Issue For years the term nursing home abuse has been used to indicate when one or more members of staff are caught physically abuse the residents. This is absolutely reprehensible behavior that should result in instant dismissal and in most if not all cases prosecution. In fact, one out of every five nursing home residents has experienced some form of physical or verbal abuse, according to a Weill Cornell Medicine study conducted by Dr. Mark Lachs and his colleagues.

Everybody looks forward to the day they turn 16 and take their road test for their driver’s license. Getting a driver’s license is like a gateway into adulthood, a right of passage some people may say. It’s been like this for years, ever since the early 20th century, when it was mandated for licenses to be issued to anyone wishing to operate one or more motor vehicles. In spite of the fact that this has been the norm for quite a while, there are people out there who wish to place more stern regulations such as raising the driving age. Although implementing stricter driving laws may seem a better option, it doesn’t always have superior outcomes to its countering opinion.
