  2. Seriously… can we abolish the term “youth violence”? It is prejudicial and stigmatizes an entire population with the implication that the young demographic is connected to violent crime (at a time when violent crime rates among youth have fallen to middle-aged levels). We don’t use terms like “adult violence,” “black violence,” “Jewish violence,” or “senior-citizen violence.” We’ve got a whole new landscape when it comes to crime involving youth, and it’s time our language caught up to it.
