We hope that this book can demonstrate some measure of the challenges that they have faced.

Theories of juvenile crime have focused on many of these problems, alone or in combination.

The message that dysfunctional system sends to violence-prone young people is that actions don't have consequences" (New York Times, 18 August 1994). Similarly, a Wall Street Journal editorial published in the fall of 1993 reported that "[w]hen asked to name a cause for the increase in youth violence, law enforcement officials largely single out the nation's system of so-called juvenile justice. Set up some 30 years ago to protect immature kids who might get arrested for truancy, shoplifting or joy riding, it is ill equipped to cope with the violent children of the 1990s who are robbing, raping and murdering" (Wall Street Journal, 28 September 1993).

Between 1977 and 1985, contrary to expectation based on the crime rates, the rates of youth confined on any given day in juvenile detention centers to await court action increased by more than 50 percent. The rates of juveniles incarcerated in training schools on a given day increased by more than 16 percent. Moral and legal differences between juveniles and adults notwithstanding, policymakers became convinced during the 1980s that serious juvenile crime was not significantly different from serious crimes committed by adults.
