Companionship and Associations of crime

Companionship of an association with persons having anti-social tendencies formed in post-adolescence years lead some youths to deviant life. But my study revealed that youth crime is not necessarily a group operation.

In my study, 64 per cent respondents had committed crime all by themselves, 19 per cent had a companion), while 17 per cent averred that they had committed no crime but had been falsely implicated.

ADVERTISEMENTS:

Of the 19 per cent respondents who had an accomplice(s) in crime, 10 per cent had a single companion, 3 per cent had two companions, 4 per cent had three companions, and the remaining 2 per cent had four or more companions.

Further, of the criminals who had some accomplice in crime, 50 per cent had a friend as their accomplice, one-tenth had a kin as accomplice, one-tenth had an acquaintance as accomplice and about five per cent had a colleague as accomplice.

This shows that youth criminals do not acquire any learning experience in criminality from persons of their own age group; nor do they always wish to conform to the ways of their peers.

The young criminals also do not use the anti-social channels provided by their peers for charging their energies or for satisfying their special personality needs; nor do they depend upon their peers for security, recognition, affection and new experiences.

ADVERTISEMENTS:

We thus hold that there is an indication that in a large number of cases (about 95%) peer groups are not the cause of youth criminality.
