Study: Nearly half of all black males are arrested by age 23
The Daily Caller ^ | 1/6/14 | Caroline May

Posted on 01/06/2014 7:45:17 PM PST by Nachum

A new study released Monday found that nearly half of all black males and almost 40 percent of white males are arrested by the time they are 23-years old.

The analysis of national data from 1997 to 2008 of teenagers and young adults’ arrest histories — excluding traffic violations — were published Monday in the journal of Crime & Delinquency.

While there was variation in the rate of arrest between black and white men, there was little racial variation in the arrest rates among women of different races.

Such impressive statistics are most likely due to the leadership and examples of Jesse and Al.....and others.

That is shocking, if true.

The difference is that many white youths are scared straight by the experience while being arrested and jailed builds street cred among blacks.

I would have guessed 30% of blacks and 15% of whites. BOY, would I have been wrong. What's surprising is that a much higher percentage of whites live in middle and upper middle class homes than blacks, and yet whites trail blacks in arrest by not that much.

Was this a really good study--or was there a LOT of supposition and projection based on small numbers?

IOW, far more white males under 23 are arrested, sounds like racial profiling to me.

Thanks Nachum.

I wonder if the “excluding traffic violations” also excludes DUI/DWI arrests. Hard for me to believe the statistic if those are also excluded. If you include those - yeah, I can believe it.

Hispanic is usually numbered as “white” in crime stats.

Not sure if that’s the case, here, though.

Don't some of the crime statistics that are gathered put those of Latin American origin under the "white" category?

AND thats the ones that were CAUGHT!..
excepting the ones released by affirmative action prosecution..
Eric Holder will not prosecute “his own people” he said.. i.e. top LEO in the country..

Wonder how far this attitude goes down the chain of command..
Bet it’s widespread in State and Local government as well..

The “half” HELD(convicted) must be the ones with crimes too heinous to ignore..
In a sane world the amount could be, should be, obscene..
Especially in the large cities(areas).. i.e. ghettos.. partial ghettos, and near ghettos..

p.s. white attacks on blacks seems to be extremely rare..
This cannot turn out good... civility is breaking down..

Lets make the wording the same for each;
Almost 40% of white males...
Almost 50% of black males...

A difference of a mere 10%. And most readers here bit right off on it.
In other words, a lot more overall white arrests than black arrests.

Methinks the author of this piece wants to stir things up a little.

they are talking about “arrested” males.It will be interesting to see % of the black and white males in jail or been in jail.
“arrested” means nothing for the criminal point of view.

My sons were raised in an affluent area near Boston.

This was in the time of large families.

I know many boys who got arrested——once.

They are all respectable family men now with kids entering college.

It was the good old “Y” chromosome,I guess.

Did they include traffice tickets?

did they compare murder/theft/violent crime -vs- jaywalking?

With the stroke of Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy’s pen, I was made a felon.

Luckily, for me and my family, I have left that god forsaken state. But it begs the question : I haven’t told CT that I have left with “their” guns. So I’m on the list now of people who have not registered.

Hiya Sal .. good to 'see' ya again !

Well somethin's being jiggled with that stat .. my rough reckoning makes that '40%' ~= to 8,750,000.

350M population / 2 = white population

175,000,000 / 2 = white male population

87,500,000 / 4 = white males < 25yo

21,875,000 * .40 = 8,750,000

Nope, don't buy it.

Reminds me when Richard Pryor went to a prison because he wanted to talk to the black men there, because he felt bad that so many black men were locked up.

What did he say after he left? “Thank God We Got Penitentiaries!”

These are “self-reported” arrests. I think a certain percentage of youths would get a laugh out of telling the researchers that they have an arrest record.

“White Hispanics?”

It depends on where you are. Some break out black, white, and indian hispanics, some and some don’t.

This report only mentions White and Black, they don’t say anything about White Hispanics, Black Hispanics, nor Indian Hispanics.

My assumption is that fairly pure white Europeans wouldn’t be at 40%+ arrest by 23 years old levels. I think they folded some other races in to make Europeans look bad.

I don't buy it either. Maybe 4% and they moved the decimal point. The incarceration rates are so different that it just doesn't make sense. This study has been quoted about a bazillion times on the internet -- has anyone actually been able to find the study and read it?

Not buying it. The most recent year for which FBI crime stats are available includes non-white Latinos as whites. Even so, the numbers don't come anywhere close between black and white. http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2011/crime-in-the-u.s.-2011/tables/table-43#disablemobile
