Juvenile Arrest Rates Since 1980
From OCDLA Library of Defense
I highly recommend you look at this chart via Kevin Drum.
Mr. Drum writes:
- Since 1996, arrests of juveniles have fallen by two-thirds. Arrests for violent crimes have fallen by more than two-thirds. Bottom line: Kids today are way better behaved and way less scary than they were in the 90s. One of these days we ought to start acting like we know this.
