Nearly Half Of Black Males, 40 Percent Of White Males Are Arrested By Age 23: Study

A large number of American men have already been arrested by the time they're in their early 20s, according to a new report.


The research was based on an analysis of national survey data from 1997 to 2008 of teenagers and young adults. The arrests included minor crimes like truancy as well as serious violent crimes. It excluded traffic offenses.

Well, either young people should commit less crimes, or perhaps fewer things should be considered crimes. But 40% of a population breaking the law seems excessive. Too many laws.
