How would you feel if the police arrested kids all over our country to jail for just crossing the street the wrong way or pushing another kid on the playground? That is what is happening to many underage juvenile all over the United States; they are being sent to adult prisons for crimes that do not deserve such severe punishments. Why they were tried as adults is an enigma and we will explain why this is a terrible injustice. In 1899 children in between the ages of 7-14 were believed they were incapable of committing criminal intent. The court system back then believed that if enough evidence could be gathered to convince a jury, the underage person would be convicted and sent to an adult prison.
Facilities allow residents of the neighborhood to interact with one another which create stronger ties in the community. Without the social gatherings of parents, the mind-set and the direction of the community remain unknown. Without the facilities to extend educational hours along with the development of social skills and common courtesies the constant infighting will continue without meaningful dialogue. These two social problems must be addressed immediately to halt the fragmentation of the infrastructure of communities.

There are five basics on juvenile delinquency. Which include what is a juvenile delinquency matter? , juvenile delinquent court process, juvenile traffic offender, certifying a minor as an adult, and limited public access to juvenile delinquency cases . There are a lot of statistics behind this topic. In 2008, an estimated 60 percent of children in the U.S. were exposed to violence, crime, or abuse in their homes, schools, and communities says the U.S. census bureau.
When kids get expelled and they’re not in school any longer, they are on the streets getting in more trouble than they ever could at school. The major problem is inconsistent application and misinterpretation of the policies, when the policies are suddenly announced leaving no room for administrators judgment or students due-process rights(Guidance Channel). Many schools have developed programs to build self-esteem and social skills to improve communication between students. In some schools, teachers and students are required to get to know each other in group discussion sessions. Educators believe that it is important to break down the cold, impersonal atmosphere of large schools by creating

And the teens should stay out of the adult system unless they committed horrible crimes and their background proves that they grew up without disabilities or bad environmental issues, in other words a healthy environment. So next time you’re in a jury with a teen defendant being tried, make sure they haven't had a background of spite and hatred that drove them into committing a crime, make the decision that would better America as a whole.
Studies show that 75% of school deaths are a result of firearms(CRF). A school interview showed that 28% of students have handled a firearm outside of parent supervision(CRF). Since many legal firearms dealers do not do background checks on their clients, and students have easy access to these weapons, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a measure that would “streamline the system for keeping track of criminals, mental patients, and students under 18”(CRF). Although many say that school violence results from gun access, others say that school violence is a product of the media and bad parenting. In 1963 professors A. Badura, D. Ross, and S.A. Ross gathered 100 preschool children and divided them into four groups.
Schools and communities too often stand idly by while people struggle, sometimes outright mocking the victim, or, in some cases, being told to suck it up. How can we as a society allow these children to abuse one another? Is that what we want people to grow up to think is somehow how the real world works? The real world does not work like school, and the bully and bullied alike are going to run into severe trouble down the line for what they experienced since no one ever taught them any better. Teachers, parents, and the community need to learn the signs of bullying and the ways to effectively handle bullying the moment it is spotted, or only more and more children are going to come out scarred and unprepared for reality, if they are lucky enough to make it out alive.
(Levinson) Now Juveniles are being prosecuted a lot more than adults in adult courts. Out of our fifty states “twelve currently set sixteen years of age as their minimum age to prosecute juveniles, four states set the age at 17 and fifteen states (including the federal government) requires that the offender be eighteen in order to receive the death penalty”. (Monroe, 2009)States that do no specify a minimum age for prosecution of a juvenile can sentence to death anyone sixteen years of age and older. The main idea is to see if it’s really justice to prosecute a juvenile as an adult knowing that their mental capacity is not of an adult.

February 11, 2009, Rihanna filed a police report On Chris Brown for beating her. May 3, 2010, twenty-two year old Yeardley Love was found beaten to death by her boyfriend, George Huguely. The Bureau of Justice Special Report: Intimate Partner Violence says that one of every three women have been or will be in an abusive relationship in high school (Alabama Coalition Against Domestic Violence). I propose that further action must be taken to inform women of dating violence before it ends tragically. Dating abuse goes unvoiced because some women don’t completely understand what it is.
