Research Associate, Chantal Hailey asserts that without government provided services or “Without social services and youth programs, teens often become bored. They may turn untapped potential into risky behavior, like selling drugs”. This is exemplified in the movie by Doughboy who is arrested at a young age for shoplifting for no reason other than boredom. Growing up around an endless amount of gun violence and criminal acts raises the chance of these youth to “become a victim of a crime, participate in deviant behavior, and have mental health problems” (Hailey). The multitudes of young arrests like this escalates into a much larger problem.

Along with these reasons, the laws also continue to affect minorities negatively and they fail to reduce the drug trade. People that support the minimum sentence laws argue that they help keep criminals off the street longer, cause crime rates to decline, and deters people from committing certain crimes. (Issues &

CALELAO, Kyla Ellen, M. SURVIVING THE CYNICAL EFFECT OF GLOBALIZATION IN THE COUNTRY “We were all humans until, race disconnected us, religion separated us, politics divided us, and wealth classified us.” Despite of the great impact of it in the advancement of our country, globalization has been threatening our lives and the worst thing is that we, Filipinos, are not aware of this threat brought by the phenomenon. The widening of the gap between the rich and poor people, a result of globalization, puts the Philippines deeper in the quicksand of poverty and also causes social injustices among men. The deprivation of jobs and resources from its own citizens causes the people to die unattended. The possibilities of the widespread of diseases

As a result, Yummy is a victim due to how the environment had changed him, from being a sweet boy who loves candy into a person who had joined a gang and started doing bad things, like shoplifting and killing. In fact, Growing Up in a Bad Neighborhood Does More Harm Than We Thought, by Justin Wolfers mentions, “It has long been clear that children from troubled neighborhoods have worse outcomes as adults. But it has been much harder to disentangle whether these neighborhoods cause the later disadvantage, or whether the hardships that lead families to bad neighborhoods are the problem.” (Wolfers) This points out that the environment children grow up in and things they see around will influence them. Living in a neighborhood that has troubled all the time will lead others to follow that same path. For example, Yummy lives in a neighborhood that is full of crimes, by seeing what others do causes Yummy to do the same.

Police alone cannot prevent shoplifting, however police officers can persuade retailers to be more proactive by increasing security, and implementing strategies aimed at reducing theft, such as linking CCTV systems to alarms (Nelson & Perrone, 2000). Modern technology is constantly improving methods of tagging stock to make the theft of goods more detectable (Nelson & Perrone, 2000). Store owners and centre mangers need to be convinced that the costs of increasing security will be recouped through reduced losses associated with theft (Clarke & Petrossian, 2012). Police teaming up with business owners and management of retail areas is a common method in third party policing in an attempt to address the crime problem. A study conducted by Bellamy (cited in Mazerolle & Ransley, 2005) evaluated the impacts of third party policing using tactics to combat robberies in local convenience stores.
