When looking at the relationship between social justice and juvenile justice, there are two overarching concepts when addressing juvenile delinquency: treatment and punishment. These two concepts have driven a cycle of changes in the juvenile justice system over the years. Your task is to support your premise that your state or city should implement a philosophy of treatment for juvenile offenders, punishment, or a combination of the two (i.e., treatment and punishment) for a specific crime or criminal justice issue identified in your paper. In your paper,
Identify the prevailing thought in your city (or state) as well as the other jurisdiction you chose (i.e., treatment, punishment, or a combination).
Identify whether the recidivism rate is the best indicator of success or failure of treatment versus punishment philosophy.
Explain why or why not.
Identify which strategy or combination of strategies the research appears to support.
Identify whether it is based on type of crime.
Explain whether a given strategy works best depending upon the nature of the crime (i.e., violent vs. non-violent).
