While ago, one of my dearest friend Andy had his car stolen by a juvenile theft, who later been caught by the police. Dear audiences and judges, today I must present a tragic fact to each of you. The juvenile crime rate in United States, this very country, had risen in a dramatic range. There are more teenagers in our country possess potential danger that could cause harm to others. Although many people argue that society held no responsibility toward the malicious actions of modern juvenile criminal, the society is partially responsible to such corrupt occurrence. Since the basic nature of teenager has not changed through time, therefore the reckless assumption of that modern teenagers are innate with corrupt nature is invalid.
