1999). Risk Factors Related to School. Thornberry et al. did a study and concluded that poor math scores for males and a student’s weak attachment to his or her teacher are both strong indicators that he or she will join a gang (2003). Researchers also said that youths who feel unsafe at school are also more likely to join a gang—for protection (Curry, Decker, and Egley, 2002; Decker & Curry, 2000).
Juveniles should be charged as adult not only because of their age but because of the crime they committed. According to all cases of teen killing there is 1,300 that has been sentenced as an adult to life. Is not right to put a child behind bars because they're brain is not fully developed so they're not mature, but a crime is a crime. At the young age of 12, 13, 14 even younger kids most of them are expected to know what they want to commit themselves to to make a living. If kids are given that much responsibility and such a young age, then why can't they comprehend the consequences of violent crimes such as armed robbery and murder?
School shootings have become a substantial occurrence in the last twenty years. The reason for this spike is the major influence the media has in an average person’s daily life. Movie and TV show writers hold an obligation to depict violent acts properly and less circadian. When potential shooters see spurious violent acts, not causing harm, in an unstable mental state, they get a great sense of paranoia that can become uncontrollable. This can create more potential shooters causing schools to believe they are unsafe thus having a need for increased security.
Amy Shuffelton, assistant professor at Loyola University of Chicago, with a specialty in Philosophy of Education and Gender Theory, presents various reports about gun violence in the United States. The article discusses the retribution the violent acts have in schools and how the media makes a significant impact in school shootings. The article talks about gun violence not just in schools, but in neighborhoods and public places, and the effects such actions have on school’s shootings. In addition, how the mass media presents an incident to the public plays an important role in future gun incidents. Even though the article is not specific to schools, the fact that the environment a student is presented with, does affect the choices they make.
In order to move up the ranks in their gangs, their crimes become more gruesome causing them to become traumatized. Initially, youth feel a sense of sympathy for the family of the victims, but it is short lived and after the guilt is passed they immerse themselves once in crime. Kelly, Anderson and Penden (2009) said that exposure to gang violence at an early stage makes the perpetrator feel sympathy for the victim, however, committing the act may lead to desensitization. Futhermore, violence increases the likelihood of aggression and violent behaviour in youth, which stimulates aggressive thoughts and behaviours. Youths which have aggressive thoughts influences their interpretation of situation, such that they inflict hostile behaviour on people.
Prior to 1899 in the United States, children who committed a criminal offense were tried and punished as adults. Children were being institutionalized with adult criminals where they were picking up negative influences preparing them for a life of crime. Progressive and social change demanded that children be protected and educated instead and therefore a separate court system for juveniles was subsequently established to address this problem. It has since being argued that juvenile courts have abandoned their role to rehabilitate juvenile delinquents and should be abolished. In an age where juvenile crime has escalated from simple truancy to more serious crimes such as mass school shootings some would agree it is time to abolish juvenile courts or modify the system at the very least.

Most people are the victims of sexual assault because they don’t know how to prevent it. If people are required to learn more about how to prevent sexual assault like say in a school then the number of sexual assaults per year should greatly decrease.

Emmons quotes Michelle Garrison, an investigator at Seattle Children 's Research Institute Center for Child Health, Behavior, and Development who states that “if a child sees himself as the 'good guy, ' then anyone who disagrees with him must be a 'bad guy ' -- and this black-and-white thinking doesn 't leave much room for trying to see it from the other side.” When pre-teen watch violent movies or games with this notion of
Your child could be caught up in the next school shooting, and be killed. If only your school cared enough for their students and had a security guard, they would have been able to prevent the whole thing. Schools today still need more security, but how much security they have today, and what more security can and will prevent. Schools need more security today, we can reduce how many people die to school shootings each
I feel that the people ever allowed to bring guns onto school grounds are law enforcement. Many people, such as myself, would not feel safe being in a school environment being around people with guns on their hip. We come to school to learn and to hopefully feel safe, but having tons of people with guns on them would not make me feel safe whatsoever. Yes, if there ever was a school shooting on campus, it could help bring the victim level down if there is someone in the area of the shooter. School shootings are pretty rare even though they have been more frequent recently.
