Running Head: JUVENILE DELINQUENCY Juvenile Delinquency Elizabeth Anderson Professor – Holly Sprinkle Research & Writing – ENG 215 November 7, 2016 1 JUVENILE DELINQUENCY 2 Introduction Rapists, murderers, and other criminals are being released from prison every day after serving a short and lenient sentences. These criminals are juveniles and teenagers who engage in adult criminal activities. These juveniles are being tried in juvenile courts, and since they are underage, they receive shortened and lenient sentences. While these juveniles receive lenient punishments, while their victims and their families continue to suffer forever and are left with permanent scars. Because the court system and the entire judicial fraternity believes that such juveniles should be given second chances, one may wonder what makes them so special. Due to the compassionate jail sentences, there are a lot of juvenile criminals walking around in the neighborhoods and streets, and in many instances commit additional crimes. Thus, minors who commit crimes should be tried as adults because they engage in adult crimes. This paper will address the history of the problem and a proposed solution to reduce and prevent future occurrence of the problem. History and status of the problem The juvenile justice system was initially established to provide customized rehabilitation to offenders who commit minor crimes such as shoplifting, truancy, and vandalism. However, the youths of today are taking advantage of this outdated and lenient system and are engaging in violent crimes, because they belief they will get off more easily. Juvenile violence, especially homicides has significantly increased in the recent past. Early 1990s, juvenile violence experienced a dramatic rise and this generated considerable concern and fear among members of the public (Friedlander, 2013). According to a report by the National Center for Juvenile Justice (NCJJ), juvenile crime has significantly dropped. However, the number is still high and therefore the judicial system JUVENILE DELINQUENCY 3 should do something so as to prevent the number from skyrocketing. The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges stated that out of approximately 74 million juvenile population in the United States, 1.6 million were arrested in 2010, and around 1.4 million of the overall cases went to court. In this case therefore, although juvenile crime has decreased down 21% from 2001 to 2010, strict measures should be adopted to further decrease the overall crimes committed by juveniles. Juvenile delinquency has economic, social, and moral implications (Bartollas, Schmalleger, 2014). Economic problem Juvenile delinquency costs the United States approximately $160 billion each year. Although the government spends almost 15% of its gross domestic product on education and upbringing of children, violent often peaks in the late teenage years. Basically, juvenile violence remains one of the most serious societal issue with substantial financial implications. United States cities lose an estimated of $50 billion every year on crime and violence. This significant externalities demand the federal government societal and government action. In addition to the federal government, juvenile delinquency also have an economic impact on the victim and his/her families. The victims’ families spend a substantial amount of money in catering for the court procedural expenses, and counselling expenses among others. The victims’ families spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in hiring a legal lawyers and also a counsellors for counselling them. Social problem Juvenile delinquency is a serious problem within the society as a whole. Family influences, neighborhood influences, and peer pressure are some of the major problems that causes this issue. According to a report by the United States Department of Justice’s Office of JUVENILE DELINQUENCY 4 Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), approximately 10 million juveniles of between 10 to 18 years were arrested in 2009. These statistics depict that juvenile delinquency is a social problem due to the high number of crimes being committed and arrests being made. Juvenile delinquency not only affect the youth population, but also the family and entire neighborhoods. Furthermore, the stress of having a family member with delinquent behavior can develop instability within the family, since the family members have to deal with the moral and ethical problem associated with it (Siegel, Welsh, 2014). Ethical/moral problem Juvenile delinquency have a moral impact on the perpetrator (criminal) and other people associated with him/her. According to Stams, et al (2006), there exists a relationship between juvenile delinquency and moral judgement. Stams assert that juvenile delinquents tend to use lower levels of moral judgment, as opposed to their non-delinquent age-mates. Stams claim that studies of juvenile delinquents have showed that juvenile offenders are at lower developmental level of moral reasoning than their non-delinquent counterparts. In this case therefore, it’s clear that juvenile delinquency have a moral impact on the perpetrators themselves. Moreover, with the increasing cases of juvenile delinquency, it’s clear that there is a moral problem in the society. The trend of juvenile delinquency shows that there exists a moral rot in the society and therefore it’s about time for the problem to be addressed (Stams, et al, 2006). Conclusion Juvenile delinquency is a major problem in the society and should be addressed. The number of teenagers and youths who engage in violent crimes has significantly increased in the recent past. The issue pf juvenile delinquency causes social, economic, and moral implications. The federal government spends billions of dollars in addressing juvenile violence. In addition, JUVENILE DELINQUENCY 5 the scars caused by juvenile delinquency are forever left on the victims and families. In this case therefore, the government in conjunction with the local community should create moral education programs for teenagers, including the delinquents. The government through the judicial system should also try juveniles as adults in attempt to reduce and eventually eliminate the number of juveniles engaging in violent criminal activities. 6 JUVENILE DELINQUENCY References Bartollas, C.
