Discussion Of Justice And Juvenile Justice
Please finish the required readings in the Wright (2012) text before commencing work on this discussion. In addition, read Laub’s 2018 book Reducing Justice System Inequality: Introducing the Issue and Schaefer and Uggen’s 2016 book Blended Sentencing Laws and the Punitive Turn in Juvenile Justice. Please also visit the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention’s (Links to an external site.) Juvenile Arrest Rates web page at https://www.ojjdp.gov/ojstatbb/crime/JAR.asp.
Justice is concerned with making things right. Ethics, equality, human rights, religion, and solidarity are all foundations for the concept of justice. Rawls believes justice to be the first virtue of social institutions, according to Otried, ed. (2014: Section 1.2, para. 1) in an examination of John Rawls’ work. It is only similar in importance to “truth […] in systems of mind.” Juveniles have their own branch of justice that deals with concerns that are specific to kids who commit crimes. The majority of adolescent criminals do not go on to conduct crimes as adults, according to statistics. The majority of them go on to have successful careers. Please finish the readings for the week and then respond to the following questions in your first discussion post:
Please provide a summary of the juvenile justice movement’s history. Make sure to mention the progressive movement, the establishment of juvenile court, the juvenile rights movement, and other relevant juvenile justice movements.
Explain the steps in the juvenile justice system, starting with intake and ending with detention.
Explain how the subject of juvenile justice waivers and transfers is both a juvenile justice and a criminal justice concern. As a reminder, the juvenile justice system is concerned with people who are classified as minors, whereas the criminal justice system is concerned with people who are classified as adults.
Examine a viewpoint on the relationship between juvenile justice and children’s welfare. Make sure your argument is backed up by evidence from scholarly or reliable sources.
At least 350 words should be included in your first post. Use examples from the needed material(s) and/or scholarly or reliable sources to back up your statements, and make sure to correctly credit any references.
