Oct. 29, 2010 - PRLog -- Creating Criminals challenges the Juvenile Justice system, created to lead young offenders back into society, as much as it challenges the reader to examine the way we all embrace young people as long as they are cute or do us proud, but pull back in disgust or indifference when they need us most. The main question he answers is: From bouncing baby to ‘career criminal’, what happened in between? All Australians should read this book to truly understand, particularly parents of teenagers.
If young achievers are our pride, who takes credit for our ‘young’ criminals?
Children are our legacy as much as our future. Does a child stop being a child because it has committed a crime, horrible as it might be?
If the sins of the fathers are the sins of the sons, who should pay? The factors that may influence a child’s slide into delinquency often start at a very young age.
If we wanted to turn a child into a criminal, what would we do? In what other species do the parents almost exclusively transmit the danger to their offspring?
If juvenile delinquency is the symptom, what is the disease? Is there possibly more to crime than punishment?
Are tougher sentences the best we can do to deal with young offenders? Rather than addressing the reasons for their offences, are we content with serving ‘just desserts’, thereby risking another ‘lost’ generation?
What we could and maybe should not do with young offenders – reflections, narratives, essays and contributions by experts in the fields of law, journalism, schooling and juvenile justice:  David Rose, Ross Gittins, David Brown, Stuart Henry, Robert Tudisco Coalition for Justice, Adam Ortiz.
H. George Dieter has a law degree an MA (Psychology) and MApplSc and worked in juvenile justice centres for over 10 years. He currently runs a private psychology and coaching practice. His thorough research and understanding will make him an expert in the field of juvenile crime.
