  • Charles Manson - 1,361 words
    Charles Manson Charles Manson is known as one of the most sinister and evil criminals of all time. He organized the murders that shocked the world and his name still strikes fear into American hearts. Mansons childhood, personality, and uncanny ability to control people led to the creation of a family-like cult and ultimately to the bloody murders of numerous innocent people. Charles M. Manson was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on November 11, 1934. His mother, Kathleen Maddox, was a teenage prostitute. Mansons father walked out on the still pregnant Maddox, never to be seen again. In order to give her bastard son a name, Ms. Maddox married William Manson. He soon abandoned the both of them. Manso ...

  • Discussions On The Scared Straight Program - 1,889 words
    Discussions On The Scared Straight Program The recent media obsession with the scared straight program, juvenile boot camps and other scare tactics has lead to the question as to whether they actually are beneficial or not in treating adolescent criminal recidivism. On television programs like Maury (Pauvich) the answer to treating the troubled young girls who are brought to the show is boot camp. Those in charge take these girls to prisons, dangerous streets at night and often morgues to make a visual argument as to where they will end up as a result of the path they've taken. They also go through a rigorous run with drill sergeants to break down their egos. Of course it only last one day a ...

  • In Cases Of Juvenile Arrest, Rehabilitation, Not Punishment Should Be Streesed - 658 words
    In cases of Juvenile arrest, rehabilitation, not punishment should be streesed Refinance now homeowner even if you have bad credit. 185 loc In cases of Juvenile arrest, rehabilitation, not punishment should be streesed Why would our government try to hurt kids? Well, kids are being hurt right now. You see, in America punishment, rather than rehabilitation is being emphasized for juveniles who commit crimes.

In Illinois, for example, a juvenile is defined as any person below the age of 17. Using each states legal definition, th ...

  • Juvenile Boot Camps - 1,165 words
    Juvenile Boot Camps Juvenile Boot Camps: The Modern Alternative Juvenile delinquency is not anything new; it is a problem that has plagued our society for the past two hundred years. Juvenile delinquency is believed to have started with the emergence of industrialization and urbanization. This same phenomenon later appeared in other countries as they began to modernize as well (Bernard 6). In the past juvenile care facilities and juvenile detention centers attempted to contain the problem of juvenile delinquency. These past attempts have failed. The modern alternative, juvenile boot camps, might turn out to be an effective way of combating the problem. The Juvenile Justice System plays a maj ...

    ... and show great progress to be controllers, and accountants, giving the kids an even greater sense of responsibility. After the kids got out of boot camp, they would be required to return to the boot camp to give talks on how their lives have changed since going through the program. The graduates would also be required to give peer tutoring, one hour for every day they were incarcerated, as a way to give back to the camp. This would give the kids who get out a reason not to do it again because they would see how their freedoms were actually stilted and it will help the kids in the camp by giving them a role model, a person who has been through similar things and came out on top. To get in ...

  • Juvenile Delinquency - 1,394 words
    ... s a few important questions. What is being done to prevent this? And what are our governments (local and federally) doing to help? Money makes the world go round and without government help the many social workers, psychologists, counselors and doctors trying to help this situation would not be able to do their part. The juvenile justice system is funded by multiple sources (McNeece & Roberts, 1997). Almost no federal money is expended by juvenile courts to support ongoing operations, but demonstration projects are funded with grants from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This appears to be changing som ...

  • Loneliness Of Long Distant Runner - 552 words
    Loneliness Of Long Distant Runner The theme of honesty is widely developed in "The Loneliness of the Long Distant Runner," in which Smith tells us what honesty means according to him, and according to the governor. To be honest is interpreted by the governor as the easiest and most common way to win the race, to get out of the jail, and to have a family. Smiths sense of honesty therefore must be seen as individuality; to be in charge of ones self and free of "the system" creates an honest man, a human individual. The governors interpretation shows honesty as conformity. Conforming to societies mandate horribly clashes with Smiths powerful sense of freedom and inner strength. "The Loneliness ...
