Okay folks, this is a simple question that needs some answering. After you read about the statics during this report, you tell me who will be to blame for this via the leftist msm? (that is, if they even bother to report the story.) After-all, it can’t be the blacks involved in the various crimes resulting in their arrests fault…it must be someone else that caused them to do this! Nor can we ignore the white youth either. These numbers are staggering via my viewfinder in life, what about yours?
Here’s one report about this issue, see what you think:
…”A problem is that many males – especially black males – are navigating the transition from youth to adulthood with the baggage and difficulties from contact with the criminal justice system”…. (link)
(Via Huffington Post) Really, that’s what the authors of the study conclude is the “problem“? Not the part where they are actually engaging in the criminal behavior, but the fact they are caught while doing it.
A large number of American men have already been arrested by the time they’re in their early 20s, according to a new report.
The study, published on Monday in the journal Crime & Delinquency, found that nearly half (49 percent) of African-American men and 40 percent of white men have been arrested by the age of 23, “which can hurt their ability to find work, go to school and participate fully in their communities,” according to a press release.
The research was based on an analysis of national survey data from 1997 to 2008 of teenagers and young adults. The arrests included minor crimes like truancy as well as serious violent crimes. It excluded traffic offenses.
