  • Juvenile Delinquents - 802 words
    On March 7, 2000, Californians voted in favor of Proposition 21 - The Juvenile Justice Initiative. . The number of crimes committed by juveniles has risen dramatically, and it will continue to rise unless some action is taken. Thus, juvenile offenders should be punished more severely to deter other teenagers from committing crimes and for the safety of all citizens. I am in favor of the requirement that juvenile offenders, age 14 or older, be tried as adults for serious crimes, such as murder or violent sex offenses. Juveniles that commit these serious offenses should be tried and sentenced as an adult, rather than just being given a slap on the wrist. Having more severe punishments for juve ...

  • School Violence - 1,686 words
    ... ching becomes almost impossible, and concerns about safety and control take precedence over concerns about learning and teaching. In general, school factors that are conducive to disorder, crime, and violence include: (a) overcrowding; (b) high student/teacher ratios; (c) insufficient curricular/course relevance; combined with (d) low student academic achievement and apathy, which give rise to disruptiveness; (e) poor facilities design and portable buildings that both increase isolation and hamper internal communication; and (f) adult failure to act because cognizant leaders improperly identify potentially inflammatory situations, are reluctant to admit a problem, believe nothing will wo ...

  • The Effectiveness Of Mediation With Juvenile Offenders - 2,128 words
    The Effectiveness of Mediation with juvenile offenders "The courts of this country should not be the place where the resolution of disputes begins. They should be the places where the disputes end - after alternative methods of resolving disputes have been considered and tried . . . ." Juvenile crime and delinquency are increasingly growing social problems in the United States. The current juvenile crime system which involves juvenile court, juvenile hall and programs designed to rehabilitate have not proven highly effective in most cases.

  • A Clockwork Orange - 1,283 words
    A Clockwork Orange, by Anthony Burgess, is a dark look into a frightful future of violence and social control. The story dives deep into such issues as free will, the illusions of reality, the morality of ethics, and many others. Burgess fills this horrific tale with satire, numerous puns, and above all: irony. A Clockwork Orange is comparable to George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four or Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. Burgess presents us with a philosophical message that we may soon find ourselves faced with. A Clockwork Orange is made up of three parts containing 21 chapters, 21 being the official age of human maturity. It is a stream-of-consciousness novel about, most fundamentally, the fr ...

  • Trying Juviniles As Adults - 1,221 words
    ... hold the same discipline as an adult prison, but keeping the services provided to a minimum. We are trying to teach these criminals a lesson. Neither juvenile nor adult prison should be a pleasant place to live. There have been many recent trends in Juvenile law enforcement from ranches, to boot camps even holding the parents responsible for the parents responsible for their childrens crime (Landau 97). It is stated that students should be taught at a young age in school that if you do the crime you serve the time it also states that a society wont rest until we are crime free (Garcetti 179). Additional problems with the system consist of the educating of society on youth offenders and i ...

  • Young People As A Social Problem - 928 words
    In the wake of the alarming rate of juvenile delinquency and the accumulating cases of teenage suicide since the mid 90's, it's not surprising to see that the majority started to accuse young people as a source of social problem. Nowadays, some may even consider young people as a group of easily-agitated gangsters euipped with the potential ability and the desire to disrupt the present social order. However, is it justified to point the finger of blame on our teenagers for the social problems? Is it really a fact that the pillars of our future society could no longer be relied on? As a youth myself, instead of considering young people as a social problem, I would regard young people as a mir ...

  • Educated And Uneducated Parents - 307 words
    A school comprises children with diverse demeanors. Attributing all their qualities to the educational background of their parents is not stating the whole truth. Although children get influenced by their parents to a great extent, there are other sources of influence which should not be overlooked. Children do not stay at home with their parents throughout their childhood. Children who are over five or six may spend their days in a school where they interact with other children. The kind of friends they make at school leave an impact on their behavioral pattern. The parents may be oblivious to the childrens circle of friends in most of the cases. The influence of films and television on the ...
