Juvenile Crime and how It Affects Our Society
The increase in juvenile crime, highlighted by the proliferation of handguns in schools in America and in Britain knives, has caused some concern and has meant both the British Government and American States have had to take action. Within the past six months, a critical mass of public opinion has formed around the issue.
These groups are categorised into violent, delinquent or social groups.
Violent group members are usually unstable and carry weapons, whilst delinquent gangs are smaller and carry out petty crimes such as theft and muggings.
What is Delinquency?
Delinquency is the legal term for the behaviour of children and adolescents that in adults would be judged criminal under law. In the United States, definitions and age limits of juveniles vary, the maximum age being set at 14 years in some states and as high as 21 years in others.
