    “Factors leading to the involvement of children in criminal activities included the “negative influence of the media”, adults luring them into a criminal environment, and having parents who were criminals, the report noted”

    These are the factors?

    Has there been research done on negative media influence? Or is it anecdotal? Pretty sure any direct or vicarious influence by media is inconclusive as a stand alone factor.

    And the part about having criminals as parents, what about their socio economic status? Aren’t these what the unit needs to address and overcome in order to eliminate negative role modelling?
