Nearly half of black men and 40 percent of white men are arrested at least once on non-traffic-related crimes by the time they turn 23. That's according to a new study.
The estimates published this month by criminologists at the University of South Carolina and the University at Albany didn't rely on arrest records but on an annual federal survey of 7,000 young people who answered questions from 1997 to 2008.
The authors found that by age 18, 30 percent of black men, 26 percent of Hispanic men and 22 percent of white men have been arrested.
By 23, those numbers climb to 49 percent for black men, 44 percent for Hispanic men and 38 percent for white men.

This is a sign of a country in decline -- this is our new generation.
The next presidential candidate need to run on lifting the country's moral compass to teach young kids right from wrong and help them strive for goodness and morality.
Haha...I was 27
Net out Marijuana and see what’s left
Not me. I didn’t do it, nobody saw me, you can’t prove a thing.
There are so many laws now, each of us probably breaks a few each day without even knowing it. There should be a requirement that for every new law that’s passed, legislators should be required to repeal five existing laws.
“Haha...I was 27”
I don’t believe that 38 per cent of white men are arrested by 23. I think they fudged that number so it doesn’t look as bad for non whites.
Running a party that got out of hand.
That means there is a 50% chance that Obama has an arrest record that has been hidden.
Well I had my rights read to me 3 times but never got arrested.
Did almost get shot a couple times, nearly blown up, and kidnapped by north korean spies. Oh and there was the really sexy NK spy who tried to seduce me.
The I got out of the air force.
I was going to say.
What a bunch of pikers. Most of my friends were arrested at least once by 18 and we were rural redneck kids.
“This is a sign of a country in decline — this is our new generation. “
It’s also a sign of a growing incarceration industry.
As a former CJ Instructor it isn’t a statistical race issue, it’s a fact issue. Black on Black crime is much higher, then it’s black on white crime, and at the lower numbers white on white crime, or white on black crime. Now with the immigration influx of Hispanics, more issues.
The UCR is published yearly by the FBI (2 yrs behind), and is more about the crime and the numbers relative to a key population component of say 500 per 100,000 people. All counties/cities of a certain population are to report a breakdown of all crimes nationwide.
However the racial component in the breakdown of the crime is what this Admin is trying to remove, by calling all of this racial profiling....it isn’t profiling. Only if a particular law enforcement person only focuses on blacks in all crimes or traffic stops, regardless.
If you have a crime and the victim says it’s a black male, 6’ and weighing approx 200 lbs...why would you stop a white, 5’ 5” male weighing 150 lbs, or a Hispanic, if you see a suspect fleeing or acting suspicious? Do you see the problem with what they are claiming is profiling?
Again the issue does have something to do with poverty and unemployment in some areas, but that is not the fault of the police department. How many crimes will you solve, if you can’t investigate the right description of the suspect? This is not like traffic stops at a road block.
Mistakes are made all the time, so I feel if the person, no matter the color, does not have any evidence on them or in their vehicle...let them go. Just get pertinent info to follow up on later, if necessary.
Where you can see the relevance to crime is in zipcodes, through city data details that break down race % and crime. There is talk of doing away with that too...so people moving to an area seeking better schools and safer neighborhoods will not be able to tell which ones are best.
Of course, I'm a Republican and a conservative. I hear tell that life is wilder on the other side.
