There are so many reasons as to which juveniles can talk themselves into joining gangs. Reasons having to do with family problems or even involvement in the gangs, to friends being there, making money fast and having a sense of “security” when with his or her gang members. One of the main reasons why kids partake in gang activity is because of a neglected feeling from their family. “If young people aren’t getting positive attention from parents, joining a gang certainly provides lots of negative attention. Youth who are angry at a parent may join a gang to shock or be defiant toward the parent”.
The Unibomber, as he is now known, was an exemplary student with a solid life. In the world, psychopaths are not new, but the psychopaths nowadays are younger, more brutal, and completely unafraid of the law. They are young people, often from broken homes or so-called dysfunctional families, who commit murder, rape, robbery, kidnapping, and other violent acts. These emotionally damaged young people are usually the products of sexual or physical abuse.
Gun control supporters can count some victories during the past year, including the gun-safety regulations in Massachusetts and the defeat of concealed weapons bill in several states. In all, gun control laws being stricter will gain control over gun violence and decrease the death rate over all. Both articles were well written and had chalk full of statistics and links to other sites to seek more information. They were able to convince me that fire arms should not be restricted, and concealed weapons help to lower crime. To not have possession of a gun in your home leaves you to feel helpless, because of this us civilians would no longer be able to
This has the consequence that many people have to commit crimes and go into prostitution to buy the drugs they depend on. Yet each time they get what they want, they become more and more sick. Although everything for the people in “Brave New World” is great and everyone is happy and uninhibited if they get their lovely soma, they are also often dependent on the drug. Brave New World’s government supports soma to ensure passiveness of its people and thereby the stability of their created world. Alcohol, on the contrary, seems like an illegal drug in the New World because you become an outsider by drinking it, though it is not forbidden by the
For years, the media’s perspective of the Jane and Finch community can be understood by the saying, ‘the glass half empty rather than half full”. In other words, the community is seen as one ridden with gang culture, drugs and corruption to the fullest extent due to the predominance of violence and poverty. Although the occurrence of violence is rare and momentary; it is the sole focus of the media who blows it out of proportion. Hence, the community of Jane and Finch is illustrated as an impoverished neighbourhood affiliated with gang violence almost reflexively. In contrast, the public is constantly trying to redeem the destructive stereotype cast by the media.
I would support the Dream Act, At least it gives the minors a chance to make it right and follow the law and get on the right path of following legalization here in the U.S. If we don’t give them a path to citizenship we will be dealing with a bigger issue of employers still hiring illegal immigrants and we will have more immigrants not paying taxes and will exploit the system. They come to the U.S. for a better life than their country could provide. So why are we making it impossible for their children to go in
Law enforcement is abused in many ways. From what I found the police there are police for the entertainment. I mean they do good things when it comes to drug bust and stuff, that is if they aren't using them for their own use and profit. But they Rodney King people on a daily basis for fun. No one wants that type of police force in their community.
It will automatically decrease crime rates in today’s society and hopefully make it a better place. When harsh punishments are involved for adolescents and teens who commit crimes, many will learn from the mistakes they have made and discourage others from doing such. By 17, a child is no longer considered a child and could certainly be considered an adult. There are many pros and cons on the issue of juveniles being tried as adults, as is evidently seen on television and the internet these days. Each of the issues is beneficial and argued about.
As a result, it wouldn’t solve the whole problem of underage drinking, but it would be an important step in the correct direction to help young adults. As we have seen, the legal drinking age in the USA should be lowered to 18. We already recognize 18 year olds as responsible adults that can benefit the society in many different ways. Also, lowering the legal drinking age to 18 would be consistent with the freedom that supposedly every single habitant in the United States has. Additionally, people at 18 are mature enough to decide what is correct in their own lives with the help of the government and
Even though the system has made a great deal of changes, it has not stopped the problems just slow them down. There is still poverty, bulling and racism, not just in the schools; technology has made bulling possible, and to experience racism through computers, and cell phone. This is leading to problems that are more serious for some teenagers, even death. Some teenagers get to the point to where they cannot handle being bullied, picked on and judge for their race, it is too much for one person to deal with, the only way out to take their lives. An experience no parents want to see their child go through or experience the loss of their child.
