`Problem Identification
. A delinquency offense is an act committed by a juvenilefor which an adult could be prosecuted in a criminal court. Disposition of a caseinvolves taking a definite action such as waiving the case to criminal court,dismissing the case, placing the youth on probation, placing the youth in a facility fordelinquents, or such actions as fines, restitution, and community services]2.
 
Problem Description.
The problem of in past society and present society it showsand explain the cri
mes that’s been committed by juveniles. The table also show the
year and prior year of the rate the crimes were done. When it comes down to African-Americans this problem affect them tremendously. The reason I say this is African-Americans has 52.4% of the juvenile court referrals. Solutions that can take place toreduce the percentage of African- Americans in the Juvenile Court System is startprevention groups , which is a group to educate and mentor our black juveniles andgive them experience on how it is behind prison bars, before they commit crimes bytaking them to prison systems. The changes needed for this problem is stop
neglecting our youth, by showing them we as society don’t care for them. We need to
stop stereotyping our own kind and give them opportunity.3.
