Examines statistics and literature in an attempt to dispel the myths of youth crime. Briefly analyses the situation of Aboriginal youth, youth "gangs", and girls - all of which have been singled out as especially bad or dangerous. It concludes that public concerns about these groups, although not to be dismissed, have been seriously exaggerated. Describes some of the alternatives to the Canadian style of justice system which have been successful elsewhere, as well as mentionning a few styles which have been failures.
