Where Bob Dole Stands on Juvenile Crime

The United States is Experiencing an Explosion of Juvenile Crime
Just look at the numbers:

  • Murder prosecutions of 14- to 17-year-olds have increased by 172 percent since 1985.
  • Since 1985, juvenile arrests for assault have risen 114 percent; since 1992, they have risen 22 percent.
  • Juvenile violent crime rates have increased 11.8 percent during the Clinton Administration -- and 6.5 percent in just the last year.
  • Marijuana use has doubled among 14- and 15-year-olds since Bill Clinton was elected.
  • Since 1992, there has been a 52 percent increase in the number of high school seniors using drugs.
  • 35 percent of all violent crime is now committed by offenders under 20 years of age.
  • Federal officials have prosecuted only 233 juveniles as adults since Clinton took office -- that's fewer than 2 prosecutions per state per year on average.
  • Experts predict the number of juveniles arrested for violent crimes will double by 2010 -- a new and dangerous wave of what have been called 'super predators.'

    Bob Dole Will Offer Tough Love For Juvenile Criminals
    As President, Bob Dole will reduce the juvenile crime rate by:
  • Passing real welfare reform to rebuild the family, curb illegitimacy and give welfare recipients the tools they need to work.
  • Toughening enforcement of drug laws, increasing drug interdiction at our borders, and using the presidency to tell young people that drugs are illegal and dangerous.
  • Pushing for mandatory adult sentencing for juveniles who commit violent crimes.
  • Encouraging states to keep violent juveniles in jail until they serve their time -- with no automatic releases on their 18th or 20th birthday.
  • Preserving the criminal records of violent juveniles for future review if needed by courts, schools and law enforcement.

    A Better America
    With Bob Dole as President, more juveniles will serve adult time for adult crimes.
