Have you ever wonder when you heard about a young teenager committing the crime and breaking laws? Now in days, there are about 1.4 millions cases of delinquency in the United States, which most of them are under age of 18. Many teenagers also commit a crime during their school hours where they sell tobacco, drugs, alcohol, and having sex, which led them to cause more crimes growing up. Parents shouldn’t be held responsible for their children crime because teenagers act different aways from parents, peer pressure, and if the teenager commits the crime they should pay the price.
These gangs can now introduce illicit drugs into communities which can cause individuals to become addicts. This, however, can affect them both physically and mentally. This also allows persons to become a menace to society disrupting the lives of other individuals in the community in order to maintain their new habit. Children in communities, if they do not have a strong foundation at home, can also model the behaviour of these gang members. They may also promise these children a better life not mentioning the consequences of their actions.
They join usually for protection, respect, and money. Most kids that are interested in joining a gang are involved in delinquent behavior, are aggressive or violent, and may have many problems at school, sometimes they feel unsafe in the community they live in. (Youth.gov) The Bloods Intelligence Report published in 2008 by the State Police of Virginia, states that some of the gang initiation activities are to be “jumped-in” or “beat-in”, this is where current members will kick, beat, and punch the recruit for a specific amount of time. Recruits may also have to commit some type of crime, like a robbery. Some recruits may have to shed blood to gain entry into the gang.
The addiction to drugs is a cause of joining gangs, because once a person gets hooked they will take any necessary means to receive these drugs. If a teenager is exposed to drugs early on in life they are more likely going to get involved with gangs later on. In “Opposing Viewpoints” it states”, “Early marijuana use, was a predictor of gang activity later in life”(Berlatsky 1). Teenagers usually don’t have the money to get drugs and so by joining a gang they can be given the money or obtain the drugs at a
It apears that children who exprienced drinking at young age will also continously and habitually drink in the future once they grow up. They do not simple do this occasionally but it has become a frequent and habitual addiction (Christiansen et al. 7). In totality, drinking alcoholic beverages of teenagers is not is unhealthy, unsafe, and unacceptable. More and likely teens that drink are trailing behind in their education because of how alcohol affects them so bad. Some parents allow their children drink alcoholic beverages under certain circumstances with their
Youthful offenders may enter gangs, which can also lead to auto theft, robbery, assaults, violence, etc. The things teenagers become youthful offenders is because they try to find the easy way out and that it will help them feel better about themselves. In today 's modern society, criminal courts can label a young child an adult depending the crime, but without realize the dangers of putting youthful offenders in adult prisons. Some of the risk
How does gang violence puts an impact on society? Gangs have turned the society into a war zone between different gangs. Educating people about gangs would have people thinking should they really join. People should know the history of gang violence and the types of gangs they should look out for so they could stay away. 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.
There is no one true meaning for the term gangs because it is based on the view and interest of the person defining it, the trends, and the changing social aspect of the gang. It is stated that many large communities are at great risk of significant gang activity. Gangs produce negative issues such as fear which deals with loss of economic opportunities; drop in the social status of the area and the destroying of families fabric of society. Throughout this paper we would be looking at gangs in schools, street gangs and youth gangs just to name a few and try to show how they
Many people believe that in competitive sports most children will get injured, and so those sports are not safe. That is just not true. One reason I say this is because sports can get children and teens from areas where gangs are common from joining these gangs and getting beat up, or worse. According to the President 's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, youth sports can help deter negative behavior, such as joining a gang, because competitive sports provide an outlet for expression, friendship and controlled aggression. Additionally, sports equipment in every sport are getting more advanced, to make the game more safe for the players.
The explicit sexual language used had significant influence on the teenagers and youths in the major areas surveyed. The research proved that the lyrics have significant influences on the student behaviors in their schools. The lyrics are associated with alcohol and marijuana abuse. Most of the rap music portray images whereby youths and teenagers use guns, feel violence, and create gangs to terrorize and become popular. The negative lyrics create impacts on the listener, making him/her have negative perceptions and fantasies in life.
There is no way around it, gangs are very dangerous and unstable groups. According to Rob White Getting kids out of gangs is very difficult and can often lead to injury or even worse, death (Indigenous youth and gangs as family). The program that would help kids get out of gangs would take time and be a difficult task. When a child has already joined a gang they are a member for life. According to Meagan Cahill, most youth who join do not make it very long since they are young and have to do the dirty work (Community collaboratives addressing youth gangs: Interim findings from the Gang Reduction Program).
Underage and binge drinking is risky and can lead to car accidents, violent behavior, alcohol poisoning, and other health problems. Because of the dangers of alcohol and most teenagers drink alcohol, Minimum underage drinking laws was stated but still it does not work because a lot of adolescent still use and buy alcohol like adult do. So, to prevent alcohol use in teenagers and decrease the car crashes in adolescent, parents and school need most responsibility for that. To teach their child or students about how bad alcohol is and teach the specific about how alcohol affect human body. So that, adolescent will use less alcohol and can protect them-self about their
Sex offenders also can have psychological traits. According to the article entitled “Juvenile delinquency: Lack of parental monitoring blame” by Udisa Islam, Islam stated that lack of parental control leads to teens being involved in criminal activity . Parents that do not control the behavior of their children and teach them morals and values can lead to their children become sexual offenders as adult. Islam also stated that 82 percent juveniles are more likely become drug addicts and committed other crimes because of lack of parental guidance .During pregnancy, mothers that abused alcohol can lead to their children having undeveloped brains.
It is well known in America that gangs are problematic. The Federal Bureau of Investigations estimates there are approximately 1.4 million gang members in the United States which includes prison gangs, outlaw motorcycle gangs, and criminal street gangs. This statistic is probably grossly underestimated because of inconsistencies in reporting gangs and gang members from state to state. Even with those estimates, gangs are responsible for a large amount of crime in America. To avoid the growing street gang problem, we should focus our efforts on gang prevention at an early age.
People form Latin America may migrate to the United States for a variety of reasons including better economic opportunity, violence in their home country, and family reunification. Parents see the U.S. as an avenue for a better life for both themselves and their children. However, even though migrating seems like a great option that doesn’t mean making their way to America will be easy. Improved economic opportunity is an extremely important reason why Latin Americans migrate to America.
