Juvenile Crime and Delinquency: Shootouts in School

Anju Khosla (Author)
Synopsis Crime and the family Crime is sometimes popularly blamed on the family, with poor parenting, lack of discipline and family breakdown often associated with youth crime. A recurrent theme in academic research has been to investigate the relationship between delinquency and a range of family related factors.

Studies of school shootings have been conducted in a variety of disciplines, including sociology, psychology, and media studies. Despite the widely diffused recognition and fear associated with violence in schools, empirical evidence indicates that schools are among the safest places for children, compared to their homes and neighborhood environs.

School shootings can happen at any school at any time. Lack of security is only a small part of the problem. The major issue lies in the low morality of students and warning signs overlooked by administration. Not all, but a majority of the students are cold-blooded killers. And shooting fellow students is often not their first choice. In fact, school shooters are victims themselves, and shooting fellow students was a last resort. They feel as if no one is listening and this is their only way of getting their voice heard. The shooter has more and likely made many attempts to solve this problem. The new generation resorts to violence over trivial issues or for no apparent reason. This is because many youth, particularly those in major urban centers, are "beset with idleness" and that a "growing number of teens see attractive alternatives to violence, drug use, and gang membership."
