By not treating criminals appropriately, they get more crime. More carjackings reported as police promise crackdown: “The criminal justice system has to get serious about how they deal with some of these juveniles.”.
“The criminal justice system has to get serious about how they deal with some of these juveniles,” CPD Dep. Supt. Anthony Riccio said on Friday. “A lot of what we see are the same crews doing it over and over again. So, we’re gonna have to definitely address the problem of juveniles and the crime that they’re committing.”
Riccio made the remarks as he announced the reconstitution of a multi-agency carjacking task force. He said 117 vehicular hijackings had been reported in 2020 as of earlier this week, up from 67 during the same time in 2019.
But that quip about the Criminal Justice System is aimed at the courts, who keep releasing juveniles, because “they’re just kids” and besides keeping violent criminals in jail is unfair.
Hat tip to Second City Cop, who notes…
If you reward bad behavior (and non punishment is a reward of sorts) you get more of it….lots more of it.
