The exploitation of one human being by another is one of the basest of crimes yet human trafficking, especially among females is still a global problem which must soon be dealt with. Last year, the United Nations office of drugs and crime (UNODC) released their annual report on human trafficking and it stated that “…we have continued to see an increase in the number of detected child victims.” More than 90% of countries have laws criminalizing trafficking but the implementation of these laws always fall short which has cause trafficking to go undetected. From 2010-2012, some 33 per cent of detected victims are children, which is a 5 per cent increase compared to the 2007-2010 period. In most regions, the victims were used for forced labour
Starting back in the 1700s in America, the juvenile justice system was punitive and unjust. Children as young as 8 were treated as adults and sent to do hard labor. In contrast, from the 1800s to the 1950s, social reformers were more focused on teen’s rehabilitation. Then in the 1980s and 1990s, there was yet another shift in thinking. During those decades, the number of teens who committed terrible crimes has increased a lot.Therefore
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.

California state penitentiaries who for years managed prisons without court interference were now in a constitutional bind. Those in favor of California policy system argue that segregation by race invariably resulted in the prison system especially among inmates affiliated with gangs and to put different gang members of different races into the same cell would result in violence. In order to stop interracial violence, many prisons in California adopted the system of assigning race-based cells. State penitentiary would argue that they implemented this system not because they believe in racial segregation but for the safety of all inmates. Those in favor of this system also argued that the 2005 Supreme Court ruling jeopardized the safety of inmates, especially newcomers.
“Youth incarceration, in particular, exploded: by 1997, more than 107,000 kids were behind bars, only about a quarter for violent offenses.” (This quote explains how many kids are in adults prisons now. Many kids are suffering because they grew up with a bad future already. When you start off bad it's hard to rise to the top. Kids are young and without guidance of parents, kids will do stupid things. We all want attention, that's what kids are

“New Orleans prosecutors are seeking life without parole [for juvenile offenders] in half of all cases; in West Baton Rouge Parish, 100 percent,” (“Justice for the Youngest Inmates”). Whenever a minor is found guilty of committing a crime, he or she must go through the processes of the juvenile justice system. There has been much controversy over how young criminals should be punished and corrected for breaking the law. The goal of the juvenile justice system is to rectify the mistakes that youths have committed in order to produce functional, well-mannered members of society. However, juveniles are often treated poorly after being tried and come out of the detention facilities in a worse condition than when they entered.
More babies were born after the war than ever before just in 1946 alone 3.4 million babies were born, and begun the so called “baby boom.” Couples after the war had children to make up for the lost time, and the economic prosperity of America at the time. At the same time the suburban boom occurred with families moving out of the cities into surrounding areas. Year after year more and more babies were born with the numbers rising every year until over 4 million babies a year were born; until 1964 when the birth rate started to decline, and ending the baby boom generation. By the end of 1964 baby boomers made over 40% of America’s population.
Using the multivariate logistic regression synthesis, it is clear that demographic and social predictors are behind disparities in seeking the services across the vast nation. The CDC abortion surveillance reports that in 2013, a total of 664,435 legal practiced abortions were recorded from their 49 reporting centers. The rate for the same year was 12.5 per 1000 women with the ages 15-44 years while the abortion rate at 200:1000 live births.
