Nature and Extent of Delinquency
Factors Affecting the Definition of Delinquency
Too Young to Die, Claudia Wallis, Time , March 14, 2005 ROPER v
SIMMONS, No.03-0633 was argued October 13, 2004
By a vote of 5-4, the U.S
Supreme Court on March 1, 2005 declared the execution of juvenile offenders (under 18) to be unconstitutional
This historic ruling held that the practice violates the Eighth Amendment’s ban on cruel and unusual punishments
One of the other reasons cited was that other countries from around the world do not execute juveniles
Juvenile Population Characteristics, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention , 2005 This abstract should be used to access the full report via internet
This is the most up-to-date information available to anyone
In order to have expertise and perspective about the juvenile issues, we have to know the size, composition, and other characteristics of the U.S
Juvenile population
The Crackdown on Kids: The New Mood of Meanness toward Children—To Be Young Is to Be Suspect, Annette Fuentes, The Nation , June 15/22, 1998 The statistical facts about juvenile misbehavior and delinquency simply do not support the public perception of the problem, contends Annette Fuentes
She analyzes the definitions of delinquency today compared to those of other times and discusses some of the reasons, including high-profile cases, for the state of affairs
Juvenile Offenders: Should They Be Tried in Adult Courts?, Michael P
Brown, USA Today Magazine (Society for the Advancement of Education) , January 1998 Our fear of crime and our evolving fear of violent juveniles is causing us to rethink the definition of who is delinquent and criminal and to reexamine the use of criminal sanctions for those youth who threaten us
This selection presents a concise history of our thinking from before the seventeenth century to today
The concept of parens patriae is considered as well as the dimensions of the perceived threat to society
Measures of Delinquency
Juveniles as Victims, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention , 2005 The OJJDP abstracts—“Juveniles as Victims” and “Juveniles as Offenders”—are quick summaries of the larger database
The full documents on the net provide the most current statistics in this area
Please correlate these statistics to the statistics about the general juvenile population
Theoretical Views
Predisposition to Juvenile Delinquency
The Coming Crime Wave Is Washed Up, Jacques Steinberg, The New York Times , January 3, 1999 With the recent fall in juvenile crime, many experts are at a loss as to what has caused the decrease in felonies perpetrated by youths
Jacques Steinberg considers some of the theories
Kids Who Kill: A Conversation with John Dilulio, Michael Cromartie, Ethics and Public Policy Center , January/February 1997 This conversation is about claims professors Dilulio, Bennett, and Walters asserted in their book, Body Count: Moral Poverty…and How to Win America’s War Against Crime and Drugs
Good ideas are offered and you have to decide if these ideas ( theories ) will result in good policy
Does Kindergarten Need Cops?, Claudia Wallis, Time , December 15, 2003 Claudia Wallis wants to know why there seens to be an upsurge in acting out behavior by even the youngest children
Why so much profanity, biting, kicking, and hitting ? These are our future juveniles
Frustrated Officials Find Standard Answers Don’t Suffice, Christi Parsons, Chicago Tribune , April 25, 1999 In a clear and even-handed presentation, Christine Parsons captures the failure of our prior policies and procedures for dealing with juveniles
While under many states’ laws shootings similar to those that occurred in Littleton, Colorado in April 1999 would have been addressed in regular criminal court, however, the youth of the offenders still shocks us
This frustration and confusion points to the need to develop good theory in order to have good policy
Early Violence Leaves Its Mark on the Brain, Daniel Goleman, The New York Times , October 3, 1995 The biology of the brain is examined as a possible factor influencing misbehavior—in this case, violence
Daniel Goleman reports that researchers are careful to avoid the pitfalls of anthropomorphism
The results of work with animals are used to identify behaviors and conditions that would be possible to observe and measure in humans
What Makes Teens Tick, Claudia Wallis, Time , May 10, 2004 Yes, a flood of hormones
But are there also structural changes? On top of all these changes in the brain, there is an environment
It isn’t that simple
What type of policy do we have for this developmental stage?
Theories of Delinquency
Why the Young Kill, Sharon Begley, Newsweek , May 3, 1999 The reasons why the young are turning to violent and deadly behavior over the last few years have been of intense interest to psychologists, peace officers, and indeed, the rest of the world
The killings that have taken place at high schools such as Littleton, West Paducah, and Jonesboro have raised the pre-eminent question of “why?” Sharon Begley reviews possible answers to this question
From Adolescent Angst to Shooting Up Schools, Timothy Egan, The New York Times , June 14, 1998 Much analysis is done about the celebrity cases that appear in written and broadcast media
It would be an error in logic to assume that these cases are symptomatic of an isolated set of causes and pressures
The teens who exhibit less spectacular juvenile misbehavior— “ordinary” delinquency and disorder—are exposed to like causes and social pressures
Understanding the celebrity cases helps us understand the ordinary ones
The Culture of Youth, Marvin E
Wolfgang, Task Force Report: Juvenile Delinquency and Youth Crime , The President’s Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice, 1967 Today’s youth operate in a culture in the United States that is rife with conflicting messages
It is even more diverse than when Marvin Wolfgang, an icon in the field, recognized that youth do not necessarily share the culture as adults know it and thus confirmed the use of the term subculture
This timeless article is often overlooked in courses about juvenile delinquency
Preventing Crime, Saving Children: Sticking to the Basics, John J
Dilulio Jr., Perspectives , Spring 1998 John Dilulio points out the persistence and damaging impact of the gene
