16-year-old is wanted in Garland for the homicide of two teenagers. A 17-year-old in Lancaster is accused of killing his ex-girlfriend. FBI director Chris Wray has noticed a rise in violent youth crimes in the area, which includes this one.

What Happened?

Wray stated, “That increase matches trends we’re seeing on a national level,” when touring the FBI’s Dallas headquarters.

According to Department of Justice data, the number of juvenile arrests for violent crimes has decreased since the mid-1990s, but over the past two years, the Dallas County Juvenile Department has seen an increase in these arrests.”I don’t believe there is a single cause,” Wray stated.

“For example, you have gangs who will task juveniles to be the shooter because of the perception that they have that the consequences to the juvenile will be less.”

According to Wray, kids on social media or gaming platforms occasionally encourage one another to do violent things. Additionally, they may be inspired to carry out radical deeds.

Increase In Juvenile Crimes

“Each of the past three years, the Dallas area has seen an increase in cases involving juveniles inspired by foreign terrorist organizations like ISIS,” stated Wray.

He claims that young people who were actively plotting assaults had been stopped by the FBI and local law enforcement. He claims that the FBI is expanding its threat assessment and threat management program in response, hoping to improve coordination with local law enforcement, educational institutions, and mental health specialists in order to put an end to the bloodshed.
