juvenile diversion program papers.
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Please elaborate on the following:
Your textbook covers primary and secondary types of juvenile delinquency diversion programs. Briefly examine each type and provide an example of each.
Klebold and Harris had contact with the criminal justice system prior to the Columbine shooting. Based on your textbook readings on theories of aggression, what, if anything, did you see in the video and/or read in the diversion papers that may have provided a clue as to the boys’ later aggressive and violent behavior?
In your opinion, supported by scholarly and/or credible sources, was there anything the juvenile justice system missed or could have done better that may have prevented the Columbine massacre from happening? Keep in mind that there are not always clear warning signs and not all tragedies are preventable. However, what insight, if any, was gleaned from the Columbine tragedy about the nature of aggression and delinquent behavior?
